Discussion on: Gatsby vs Next.js: Which would you choose?

The biggest problem with Gatsby - build time. If you have 1000+ blog posts with images it would take an hour to build or rebuild it. There are optimizations, but first you have to pay for them (that's how they monetize it), second - sometimes you need to do a full rebuild anyways.

With Next you can do "lazy" server side rendering, which means you don't have to do the full build in advance.

This is great to keep in mind, thanks Ivan!
