It pays to look at images, since the larger GFX sensor is about two stops of difference relative to the Fuji X sensor when it comes to depth of field. So an f2.8 lens on the GFX will deliver results similar to an f1.4 lens on a Fuji X camera.
Yes compared to XF, but I was comparing to FF as most other folks do.
There are also some options now which allow the use of Canon lenses on the GFX and they even support AF, electronic control and EXIF data, so depending on what you have, you could probably adapt something.
I need to get one of the adapters. There is no clear side by side review anywhere. And none of the reviewers will tell about real problems. All reviews are becoming more and more marketing in this age.
The GFX lenses are also phenomenally good lenses and are a bargain for what they are.
Agree on awesome lenses though I didn't like 120mm f4 IS that much but I only spent very short week with it. Money wise I don't agree. See I have no problem to pay if the lenses were faster to their FF equivalents. I know it is harder to design, but supposedly Fuji is the one of the best from all I hear. Folks say 23mm is for landscapes, then why you need even f4. Make it f2.8 and I will happily pay $2500 for it. Same with 45mm f2.8, 35mm equivalent to f2.2 or something. I am looking forward to rumored 85mm f1.4. I know it will be expensive. Fuji should also offer TS as well as some portrait lenses with leaf shutters.
On cost thing, Fuji's new 200mm f2 will be $5k or higher which is too much IMHO and I am one of the persons who was actively looking for canon 200mm f2. Only reasons I didn't buy it, I was worried a newer version of it will come, and I wanted GFX at the same time so had to pick one. Fuji's 200mm f2 len will be good but 5k or higher for crop lens is ridiculous. I know there is no other choice but just look at Sigma 105mm f1.4 for $1600. And no 200mm f2 won't be as good as using Canon 300mm f2.8 IS or the 400mm f2.8 IS unless Fuji's does what Sony did with their new 400mm f2.8. As much as I like Fuji, their tech alone is not as good as Sony (mainly to keep costs down in my opinion). Just compare AF, eye detect between Fuji and Sony. For lot of folks these two items don't matter but for overall systems, these are pretty important along with service support, durability, rentals etc.
