Already on the market is their GFXS, and released today is the GFXR.  Both are a staggering 51.4 million pixels.

We wanted to look at the notable differences and the biggest thing we noted was the price.  Coming in at $4,499.95, she is less expensive than her sister the

GFXS who is priced currently at B&H for $5,849.00

Additionally, the GFXR also has Bluetooth compatibility, so that the photographer can pair with their smartphone or tablet to transfer images.  This is different from the wifi capabilities of the other FujiFilm models.

Other notable differences is a lighter and thinner body.
