Fujifilm GFX 50s + 120mm f/4 Macro Plus Aperture Series at Distance: Baseball Diamond

See my Fujifilm GFX wish list.

This is a WAVING RED FLAG article, an absolute must-read for anyone considering the Fujifilm GFX and in particular the 120mm f/4 macro. I confirmed my findings with two other independent series. I discuss the possible causes (somewhat unlikely, but hard to rule out until I get a replacement GFX).

In my review of the Fujifilm GFX system in Medium Format:

Fujifilm GFX 50s + 120mm f/4 Macro Aperture Series: Baseball Diamond

Includes images from f/4 to f/11 at up to full resolution along with large crops.

The problem I show is so damaging that I must now cease all evaluation of the Fujifilm GFX until a replacement arrives. While I believe the issue is optical, it makes no sense to proceed further until I rule-out the GFX itself and get a replacement 120mm f/4 lens.

A plain, but immensely instructive evaluation scene.
