Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 Focus Stacking for Landscape Photography

I’ve added a few more examples to my focus stacking page for the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6, including an image with fresh and fluffy snow, which I’d not done before. It’s interesting how 100MP crosses a threshold of realism by resolving snow that lower resolution cameras utterly fail at, often “finger painting” (smearing) the fine detail of snow.

Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 Examples, Focus Stacking: Landscape

Includes images up to full camera resolution plus single frame vs stacked image, and commentary on each.

The Fujifilm GFX100S + Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 makes a very fine lens for focus stacking. As with the comparisons I previously showed, prime lenses in its range might be unnecessary. The already excellent 100MP images look stupendous at 50MP—showing that it is always better to capture more to start with.
