FWIW, the Fujifilm GFX body weighs 2 pounds (920g). The 32-64mm zoom weighs about the same: 1.93 pounds (875g). Together they weigh 4 pounds -- about the same as a Nikon D850 with a 24-70mm f/2.8G Nikkor. Not bad, considering the GFX features a larger sensor. On the other hand, how "light" a 4 lb. rig feels to you will depend on how long you have to carry it.

I totally love that it's a cat picture, and an ooc jpg. Awesome.

I've been a Times subscriber - Sunday and digital - since Drump launched his campaign. It's important to support reporting in the age of lies.

That review ended far too soon :-/. What is this strange allure of gear I can’t afford?

Give me cat photos over product shots anytime. :)

@Gordon Lewis: Fully agree with your points on the weight of the GFX and lens. It's all about one's frame of reference, and with the motorsport PJ guys I shoot with (and for me, until the X-T2 debuted last year), that frame of reference was a Canon 1D-series body and L lenses; either 17-40, 24-70, or 70-200/2.8. And the GFX + 32-64 is considerably lighter than that. More on that in Part II.

@JasonHindleUK: Don't worry; more to come in Parts 2 and 3. ;-)

This is a camera that I will love to have, but I can't say why.

Thanks. He forgot to mention the price.;)

@Jerry Walsh: The prices are in the links that Mike embedded, but this camera lens combination is ~$9,000.

~$1000 less than the Hasselblad X1D body alone.
