Fujifilm GFX100S
Fujifilm GF 20-35mm f/4 R WR

Examples: Twenty Lakes Basin

These images with a second and noticeably inferior sample of the 20-35mm, particularly at 35mm, where the lens cannot deliver a sharp image along the entire left side of the frame, even at f/9. How can Fujfilm ship crap-grade performance like that to customers? I accept that f/4 has limitations, but f/9 = unacceptable WTF.

This page shows examples with the Fujifilm GF 20-35mm f/4 in the Twenty Lakes Basin of California. Some examples shot handheld, and some tripod-based focus stacks.

Includes images up to full camera resolution, plus crops.

Conness Lakes Basin @ 22mm

Lens performance is solid here at 22mm, but not as good as the sample I had shot a few weeks earlier.
