Fujifilm has been compared to Leica for quite some time. In most cases, it's been comparisons between Fujifilm X-mount cameras and Leica M series and Q series cameras. Many of these comparisons tend to focus on color; however, the sensor size advantage remained on the side of Leica. So, how does a full frame Leica fare against a medium format Fujifilm camera?
Fujifilm has done remarkable things for the medium format industry. Not only has it brought the price down to relatively affordable levels, but it has also produced what could be described as the best medium format camera system so far. The GFX 100 cameras are the first ever medium format cameras to feature an advanced phase-detect autofocus system, sensor shift technology, and the ability to shoot 16-bit raw files all in one body.
For this particular comparison, we focused on color more than anything else. The fact that the Fujifilm can shoot 16-bit raw files gives the GFX 100s an incredible amount of flexibility and a major advantage over the Leica. Despite this, we found that Leica outperformed the Fujifilm in most of the comparisons.
Of course, it should be noted that this comparison was done mostly out of fun and not meant to be taken too seriously. Nonetheless, it's still interesting to see how these cameras compare against each other.
