Shot with the first GFX sample, which might be a bad sample.
UPDATE 28 March: re-shot with another brand-new GFX and brand-new 120/4. SAME PROBLEM. I suspect a camera + lens glitch problem.
This series assesses the Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR at distance. As a macro lens one might expect a reduction in performance, but Fujifilm employs a floating system in the optical design to keep performance high at distance.
The key finding here is about focus shift, which makes this series mandatory reading for anyone considering the 120/4. See the discussion of focus shift with the Fujifilm GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR.
