Sometimes you have to experience something for yourself before you know it's right for you. I've found this to be true for most things in life, camera equipment included.

It can be hard to tell if a camera or a lens is going to be right for you just by looking at a spec sheet—you gotta get your hands on it, take some shots, and live with it for a while before you can know that it's the right piece of gear for you. What looks good on paper sometimes turns out to be not so great in practice.

That's what happened when we loaned Detroit-based photographer Vuhlandes a Fujifilm GFX100 medium format digital camera. The GFX100 is a beast of a camera, with its 102-megapixel stabilized sensor and advanced features aimed directly at professional commercial photographers. But there is such a thing as too much camera, and it can be overkill for most people's needs.
