Pre-order new Fuji 80mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR MACRO

Medium Format systems are more specialty, so you’re not gonna get a burst of new lenses like you may get with DSLR and mirrorless 35mm and smaller-sensor systems.

There is only one camera so far in the system, the GFX-50S, which goes for $6500 in new condition or you can get it used starting at $5300 at Amazon Warehouse Deals. You can find this at the bottom of the Stock Status Tracker.
