Fujifilm GFX 100s Versus Sony Alpha 1: Image Quality Comparison

For those of you that enjoy extreme levels of pixel peeping, you're in for a treat.  A recent video compares the image and video quality between the Sony Alpha 1 and the Fujifilm GFX 100s. Although both cameras sit in slightly different categories, it's interesting to see how both camera systems compare against one another. 

Fujifilm with its GFX series of cameras has single-handedly made medium format more affordable than ever before. It wasn't long ago when a 50 MP medium format camera would cost more than $20,000. You can now purchase a 16-bit capable 100 MP medium format camera for less than some flagship full frame cameras. Full frame cameras such as the Sony Alpha 1. With its price tag of $6,498, the Sony Alpha 1 costs almost $500 more than the Fujifilm GFX 100s camera. Of course, both of these cameras sit in different categories and in many respects are aimed at different kinds of photographers. Nonetheless, if you're only looking at sheer image quality the less expensive option could be the better option. 

In the video linked above, Gordon Laing compares the image and video quality from both camera systems. What's most interesting is how closely both cameras perform against one another, with each beating the other in certain categories.

Always love his videos

He's wrong though. He claims that the 100 has 'theoretically' 50% more res than the Sony, but of course it is double the res, so 100% more

I think he said 50% more vertical lines of resolution, in which case he's correct.

Its a big Sony sensor vs smaller Sony sensor. It should be called Sony GFX vs Sony a1. If he compared GFX vs EOS R5 with good RF glass it would make more sense.
