Fujifilm GFX100S: Focus BKT @ 67mm Fails to Reach INF (Leavitt Meadows)

This page shows proof of failure to reach infinity ("INF") focus using Fujifilm GFX100S/GFX100 Focus BKT feature.

This example is the same kind of failure seen 4 years earlier with the Fujifilm GFX100. It seems to affect medium and long focal lengths the most, usually succeeding with shorter focal lengths.

Here in 2023, Fujifilm has clearly not made Focus BKT a reliable feature. We are stuck with problems that I first reported upon back in 2019 with the GFX100.
