Examples: an August Hike from Saddlebag Lake to Twenty Lakes Basin

How well does the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 WR fare for general shooting, including panoramas? Great for the lens, but the camera too often damages results with bad focus,

Presented in chronological order, to show the progression of the hike.

This page shows examples handheld (mostly) of the Fujifilm GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 WR in the Twenty Lakes basin of the Eastern Sierra near Saddlebag Lake, most handheld and some with IBIS. They look great overall, except that far too many images are front-focused, by camera error due to garbage-grade autofocus. No Sony or Nikon camera would ever let me down like this.
