What may look like me just wasting money, there’s an actual reason behind why I’ve recently bought into the Wine Country Camera 100mm filter holder kit and their round filters:
I’m saving up for a Fujifilm GFX-50S.
While I love my X-T2 and X-T3, I’ve concluded after a year and a half that landscape and cityscape photography is where my interest lies. I will maintain at least one X Series camera and lenses for general purpose shooting but for landscapes, I’d like to use a medium format camera. Because of the increase in resolution, I wanted to ensure my filter system would not only fit the larger GF Series lenses, but have the clarity necessary for a 50MP format. Wine Country Camera filters guarantee that.
Fujifilm is planning to announce their GFX-100S in the next week and will go on sale soon. It will either push down the price of the GFX-50S or it will cause more than a few to start showing up on the used market. Either way, it will push prices down enough to be comfortably affordable for me.
So, it is my hope to have a GFX-50S by this autumn and I look forward to learning how to get the best out of medium format digital.
