Shot with the first GFX sample, which might be a bad sample. See the extensive discussion of all the potential issues that raise certain valid doubts as seen with the 120/f4 Baseball Diamond series, though I deem these unlikely.
This series assesses the Fujifilm GF 63mm f/2.8 R WR at distance. Performance across the field is looked at here, as is focus shift.
As an all-around 'normal' lens, one expects even-tempered performance across the field, just as with a 50mm lens on the 35mm full-frame format. The price gives pause however as to imaging potential: if Zeiss charges about $4500 for an Otus 55/1.4, how could an about $1499 lens covering a 66% larger sensor begin to approach the same imaging quality without compromising some aspects of performance?
