50-megapixel Fujifilm GFX
Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R WR

Examples: Alabama Hills (GFX 50S)

These examples taken in the Alabama Hills area of the Eastern Sierra on the Fujifilm GFX-50R.

Many of these example show disappointing sharpness in the outer zones. To say this not as good as the Hasselblad XCD 22mm f/4 would be a gross exaggeration—it sucks. The poor performance almost certainly involves distortion correction (mandatory flag in the EXIF), but why the results with this sample seem worse than with the Fujifilm GFX-50S in the Dana Lakes examples is unclear.
