I've had mine now for about an hour. I'm amassed at the difference in both size and weight of the GFX100. Feels good in my hands and have shot a couple test shots using the GF23. Working through the menus getting it set up for me. This is what I had hope for when Fuji originally introduced the 100. Speaking of the GFX100 - my mind is certain, I'll be selling it.
The only downside so far is the toggle switch - its smaller than what is on the 100 and will take some time to get used to it. Everything else seems to be great.
adhesive rubber or silicone bumpons to the rescue ...I have to agree - if Ihad one niggle to pick, and I would have a hard time picking one, it would be the joystick. Not only is it smaller, the little nubs feel like pin pricks on my finger - they're sharp! I was like - what were they thinking? Did they actually have anyone push their finger against it and get some feedback? I would strongly consider super gluing some sort of rubber shutter release on it, if I had to use it every day. Or - what would be cooler than a screw in socket?
Other than that small detail, the camera feels like a home run and will be an influential standard setting camera for years to come.
Tried to edit the remarks however I'm currently using a small laptop can failed to find the button.I used to think I needed a backup however I've not do this for several years. When I'm out shooting by myself I'll have the one camera. If Sandy and I are shooting then it's different.
And more news... just tried the 250 with 1.4 extender and while it is still heavy it can be used handheld with little issues. This combo no longer feels like a huge boat anchor around my neck. You sure can tell the difference of losing that 1 pound.
