    Well, it could tell me that GFX users prefer eBay.

    I see a lot of movement away from both DigiBack AND SLR format cams now that we have viable mirrorless alternatives. Mirrorless is a smaller footprint and in MF territory that can be a significant benefit in itself; add to that the fact a plethora of alt-manufactured lenses can be adapted to them and you have a near digital Nirvana. Even Leica seems to be losing ground to mirrorless MF and they held their niche for quite a few years. Finally, you have quality FF digital now up in the 50MP territory, and with some newly designed lenses for those platforms, IQ has overlapped into entry-level MF territory at a fraction of the cost, and still smaller footprints. Hard to overlook that...

    I do think the highest MP and/or specialized digibacks will remain in the tech-cam scene, but that market is specialized and requires some added dedication to the capture process -- it is the contemporary version of the past large-format-film/view-camera crowd...

    I sold a D850 and bought the GFX-50R with a 50mm f3.5 lens. I think the kit is still on sale for $4K. The quality over the D850 is noticeably better and the lens is amazing. No CA like I had with Nikkor G lenses.

    It sounds weird to only have one lens but I'm finding it quite versatile. It's freeing not to have to choose a focal length. Stitching for wider works well.

    I most always shoot on a tripod, 2 second delay. The flip up screen is great for composing I never look thru the viewfinder

    It's as good as the IQ180 was a bit less resolution but increased DR with the CMOS sensor. Not to mention an order of magnitude less money and a very small and light kit

    I think Fuji owns medium format now. Especially with the GFX-100 at $10K.
