    Isn't there a full frame mode on these GFX cameras? You know, like there is an APS-C mode on full frame cameras?

    Errr, maybe because it's an f1 lens? You physically need size to get all that light in.....

    Basically correct.

    If you are comparing to the Speedmaster 35/0.95 and wondering, you also need to take into account the AF motor and stabilization, if any is present.

    Yes quite.

    Although I'd be surprised to see stabilisation in an f1 lens, but you never know. But even AF without IS would be enough to make to bigger than the Speedmaster.

    Well...I do end up using incredibly slow shutter speeds with my 35/1.4 at times and f1 is only one stop more.

    Also, f1 is unlikely to let in a whole stop of extra light. There are issues of lens mount opening size, etc when you get super fast...

    Sorry, but I can't see the point in restricting the camera in this way, a bit like buying a V8 sports car and running on 4-cylinders.

    It's like buying two cars (a V8 and a V4) at once. Not everyone needs a V8 all of the time.

    But why would you restrict your V8 when everything about it is wonderful. You don't have to drive it fast, but the satisfaction from that engine burble far outweighs anything the V4 would give you. Likewise, that large sensor with all those pixels, why use less unless you are restricted by the lens you're using??

    What if, for certain situations, a full frame is enough? It's nice to know that you have that option with medium format. Perhaps there are other options when 60MB files aren't always desirable?

    Then one has to ask, why do you need a GFX?

    With large files it's easier to crop and maintain a high standard of IQ, and if you're filling the frame, your reduced image, even at 2048 pixel length is going to look stunning. I can't see a reason why you wouldn't want to use all the resolution you have available.

    Now, I can see reasons why not to use the camera full stop, but if it's your chosen tool, use it's greatest asset, it's sensor....
