Those are two very different cameras when it comes to sensor size among other 
things. The Sony a7R III has a FF 35.9mm x 24mm 42.2MP sensor. The Fujifilm 
GFX50S has an MF 43.8mm x 32.9mm 51.4MP sensor. That Sony could hardly be 
called an equivalence, it isn't.

If you are looking for a camera to compare the GFX50S with, you need to look 
to the Hasselblad X1D-50c. That camera has an MF 43.8mm x 32.9mm 50MP sensor. 
those two cameras are equivalents worthy of comparison.

....and if you compare prices of those two:

Fujifilm GFX50S (body): $6499.95

Hasselblad X1D-50c (body): $7995.00
