The Fujinon GF 32-64mm f/4 has potential—if one can get a good copy.

It was terribly disappointing to come back with many images, of which these are only a small sampling, to find that always the right side is blurred when focused at distance from what appears to be strong lens skew. How does such a lens get shipped to customers? It is a medium format system (not entry-level APS-C), and this is unacceptable quality control.

Violent winds whip across Grant Lake, whose dry spillway will almost certainly be needed for the 2017 snowmelt.

I really like your shots on the GFX 50s. I think the aspect ratio and your composition style work well together.

Additionally, you've changed my opinion of the quality of the images the GFX 50s is capable of. Most samples I had seen before didn't look that great, but given the baseline of your other FF images compared to the new shots you've posted, the quality is definitely there.

DIGLLOYD: I have always liked the 4:3 aspect ratio. Many times it works better than 3:2, and I always found 17:6 (as with Linhhof Technorama 617S IIi) difficult.

I am now persuaded that the GFX sensor (meaning the final output from sensor and electronics together) exceeds the quality possible from the Nikon D810 and yields 50 megapixels instead of 36. That’s setting aside lens selection and optical performance, focusing problems and lens skew and so on, just speaking in terms of sensor quality. The lenses are definitely the weak point in a variety of ways, all practical and image-impacting. But when things go the right way, the results are very satisfying.
