Fujifilm GF 110mmm f/2 R WR Aperture Series: Lone Pine, Waiting for Sunrise

See my Fujifilm GFX wish list.

UPDATE 2017-08-04: I’ve added the RawDigger histogram, showing the 2 to 3 stop underexposure (plus shadow boost and push) that in my view make the Fujifilm GFX the best camera on the market today for dark exposures.

This aperture series look at image quality of the Fujifilm GFX sensor and the GF 110mm f/4.

This performance is outstanding, both from lens and sensor. About as good as it gets. I am so impressed with what the GFX did here:

Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 Aperture Series: Lone Pine, Waiting for the Sunrise

Includes images up to full resolution at f/2, f/2.8, f/4.

On my recent trip, I did not have the troubles I had with the GFX with other lenses back in the spring—I wonder if some silent fix went into this GFX, which I received in early July. Or maybe the 23mm f/4 and 110mm f/2 incorporate some fix. Or maybe something I just don’t understand.

I’m now persuaded that the GFX system is what I would be shooting today for landscape (were I just shooting for my own pleasure)—provided that I could get a good symmetric (not problematic) copy of the 32-64mm f/4. Its image quality is just too good too ignore, beating out anything else out there except perhaps the Hasselblad X1D, but I think the GFX is better for dark scenes like this and I find the lack of a 4-way controller on the X1D highly irritating for the way I work in the field (where touchscreens are a bad joke, particularly in the cold).

My budget will not allow me to buy a GFX and lenses to have on hand. Pity that Fujifilm won’t just send me a long-term loaner system to have on hand (ditto for Hasselblad), but I don’t know if Fujifilm even knows I exist.

I will also say this: the Fujifilm GFX EVF is so far superior to the Sony A7R II that I now really dislike the A7R II EVF if I pick it up after shooting the GFX.
