50-megapixel Fujifilm GFX-50R
Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR

Stitched Panorama: Mt Whitney Before Sunrise (GFX 50R)

For a general understanding of format equivalence, see Format-Equivalent Depth of Field and F-Stop. At 250mm, the Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR is about the same field of view (long dimension) as a 198mm lens on the 35mm format.

This page discusses the making of a 92-megapixel panorama using the Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR with the Fujifilm GFX-50R. Most times I would have preferred a vertical pano but this would not have added anything because the foreground would be a blur, and I’d just have had to make more exposures.
