Evaluating 9 Top-End 35mm DSLR Lenses on the Fujifilm GFX

Two new pages in Medium Format:

I may add some additional simple examples and summary conclusions in Medium Format but (it has been a looong day) and the bottom line is that the Fujifilm GFX makes a poor platform for DSLR lenses, even the very best, like Zeiss Otus. For why this is so, see Adapting Lenses to the GFX: General Discussion.

The smart move is to stick with native-mount lenses, with certain specific exceptions.

 
FotodioX Nikon F to Fujifilm G-Mount Lens Adapter

Full lens evaluations always go into the native guide regardless of camera body used. The following aperture series were shot with the Fujifilm GFX and in total give a thorough view of what one might encounter in adapting a lens to the Fujifilm GFX. These are all in Guide to Zeiss DSLR Lenses except for the Coastal 60/4 which is in Advanced DSLR.

Meanwhile, what happens if a very old lens (converted to Nikon mount!) is used on the Fujifilm GFX at close range? That is the Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.2 Auto-S. Not all images have to be sharp; impressionistic may be the goal.

“But I thought that adapting the best 35mm lenses to the Fujifilm GFX made sense!”
