“Although it sports a large image sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full-frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions,” Fujifilm claims in its announcement today.

Camera Size just updated its database to include the GFX100, giving us an idea of just how accurate Fujifilm’s statement is.

Here’s what the GFX100 looks like next to the Canon 1D X Mark II and the Nikon D5, two flagship DSLRs that also have built-in vertical grips:

And here’s a comparison of what the cameras look like from above:

Weight-wise, the GFX100 weighs 3 pounds (1.36kg) while the Canon 1D X Mark II weighs 3.37 pounds (1.53kg) and the Nikon D5 weighs 3.11 pounds (1.41kg).

So yes, Fujifilm’s claim that its new GFX100 medium format mirrorless camera has a body “equivalent” to flagship 35mm full-frame DSLRs definitely checks out — if anything, it’s even more portable in both size and weight.

Price-wise, though, the Fujifilm GFX100 will weigh more heavily on your pocketbook: it costs $10,000 while the Canon 1D X Mark II and Nikon D5 cost $5,499 and $6,597, respectively.
