Can the Fujifilm GF 30/3.5 Deliver a Fully Sharp Image with Focus Stacking?

I spent some time today reviewing a variety of Fujifilm GFX100S images (several lenses) that I shot on my last trip. My impressions from before were reinforced: it’s awfully hard to make a 100-megapixel capture for multiple reasons*, but barely good enough lens performance is a key limitation that is impossibly to work around wih some of the focal lengths.

I’ve added another focus stacking example to this page:

Can the Fujifilm GF 30/3.5 Deliver a Fully Sharp Image with Focus Stacking?

The Fujifilm GF 30mm f/3.5 is not a lens I can get excited about. There might be better samples out there than the sample I had, but if I’m going to shoot a Klingon-designed camera, I’d rather eat another +$1000 on lens cost and enjoy a really top-notch performer. That it ain’t.

* Autofocus errors, focus shift, field curvature, real depth of field less than one might hope for, lens skew.
