Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR Aperture Series with Focus Stack: Aspen Against Mountain at Dusk

See my Fujifilm medium format wish list and get Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR at B&H Photo.

B&H Photo graciously loaned me the Fujifilm GFX for the 4th time this year so that I could review the 45mm f/2.8. Please support B&H generosity by buying your gear through links on this site, such as the wishlists.

The about $1699 Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR for Fujifilm GFX is now shipping. And even though it is a brand-new release, it is still $300 off as I write this.

I was curious: could I successfully use focus stacking this wild mixture of crossing trees and branches against a distant background, and could the focus stack beat f/16, given that the subject matter is fairly distant.

The wind was near nil, and so things worked out well. It also demonstrates how selective focus (f/2.8, f/4 and so on) might be preferred over sharpness, depending on aesthetic goal.

Aperture Series With Focus Stack: Aspen Against Mountain at Dusk

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/2.8 through f/11 plus a 3-frame focus stack at f/11.

If you’ve held off on focus stacking, but are interested in cameras like the Fujifilm GFX or the Hasselblad X1D or Nikon D850 or Sony A7R III—you had better get started with focus stacking yesterday, as I think the stacked image in this series makes obvious, as with the other series. See Getting Started with Focus Stacking.
