50-megapixel Fujifilm GFX
Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR

Aperture Series with Focus Stack: Lundy Lake, Green Ice at Dam End (GFX 50S)

Shot with Fujifilm GFX firmware 2.00, lens firmware 1.00. Brand-new GFX, brand-new lens.

This short aperture series examines far distance performance from f/2.8 through f/5.6. It shows the Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 at its very best, which includes some modest limitations in spite of focusing at very far distance—worth taking into account when focusing.

Lundy Lake Dam, Green Ice at Dam End

Adobe Camera Raw 10.0.0.827. View ACR Settings. Camera Profile = Provia/Standard.

ACR enforces lens corrections for chromatic aberration, vignetting, distortion, a requirement set by the GFX in its raw file metadata. Some raw converters allow bypassing this requirement, but Adobe Camera Raw enforces it without recourse.
