Traveling, Testing Out How Good the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 Really Is

re: Fujifilm Medium Format eg Fujifilm GFX100S: What’s Missing in Lenses

My goal on this trip is proving-out the 35-70mm on the Fujifilm GFX100: can it deliver fully satisfactory image quality as good as or superior to the 30/3.5, 45/2.8, 50/3.5, 63/2.8, as my previous coverage of the GF35-70mm suggests it can?

So far, the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 is proving to be a tremendously useful lens that makes outdoor shooting exceptionally easy/light/compact. So much more useful than carrying around 3 or 4 prime lenses and swapping them, particularly with blowing snow. While the 2X zoom range constrains the range, that’s feeling more like a feature than a bug.

The 35-70mm is NOT a reassuring lens for snow or sand however: operating the zoom moves a middle section over any snowflakes, sand, etc. Definitely NOT recommended for dirty conitions.

Few posts until I am back April 4 or so—difficult to do on this trip.

Below, we got lucky—no snow for 3 months in the White Mountains, and then we got a beauty, having driven upwards in elevation to avoid a raging dust storm in the Big Pine area (30 mph spring winds up the Owens Valley). We were able to access Schulman Grove and the first ~2 miles of the dirt road beyond it, before running into impassable snow (hard packed up to 2 feet deep), just short of the junction with Silver Canyon Road. It should be passable in 7-10 days even with the extra foot or so of light cold snow. Schulman Grove itself should be accessible by March 31, and maybe by March 30 afternoon.
