    No offense taken. I'm quite certain it's a posting error since the photo on my screen before posting is about half the size as it shows on the screen after posting. Haven't figured out how to correct this.

    No offense taken. I'm quite sure its user error. The photo on my screen before posting is about half the size of the one on the post. Not sure how to fix that.

    Best regards.

    Thanks Bart and Rich and all others who contributed to the discussion about focusing and sharpness. I am lost.

    Could someone please summarize for me the consensus, if any, that has emerged? So, is the GFX100 a lemon or worth buying at this time? TIA.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    A lemon or not? There will be others who will contradict me but I initially found the camera not able to reach 'critical' focus. In hindsight this all could be due to the softness of the file. Identical files taken with my 3100 vs Fuji 100 were very different with respect to sharpness. In fact the difference between the 50s files and the 100 files were remarkable with respect to sharpness.

    Since I have a 4150 coming that I have never used I thought it would be prudent to download raw files shot with the IQ4 for overall comparison to the Fuji since the sensors are from the same generation.

    Again I found the sharpness difference from what I saw from any Fuji 100 file vs. a Phase IQ4 file to be significant. At 100% pixels any image I shot with the Fuji 100 was not as sharp as samples of IQ4 files.

    There is a softening to the Fuji files that are objectionable to me. I don't know what is causing this. Maybe it's the sensor glass with relationship to the sensor..... I don't know.

    As always YMMV but thought I would add this to the mix.

    Many thanks Victor. You are not the only one who noticed sharpness issues. Here https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62825957 are quotes from Chris Dodkin:

    Having shot with GFX100 myself, I found that default sharpening was way too low on the GFX RAW images with my current version of ACR”

    “If it was just focus, the in-camera JPEGs would be soft in the same way
    which they aren't
    so sharpening at conversion is part of the equation”


    Certainly interesting.

    Interesting perhaps, but I'd say annoying and certainly worrying.
    I found my 50s RAW files straight out of the camera already pretty sharp, especially if I hadn't been drinking ...

    You were asking for consensus K-H, but I wonder if there's any verdict or theory yet regarding this perceived softness.
    All I know is that my '50s fence' is still pretty comfortable ...

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Chris Dodkin is a fashion photographer.
    He described his work flow for the GFX100 here:

    https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62782657

    Seems pretty involved.
    He currently uses a 50S for work and a 50R for fun.

    He had an opportunity to try out a pre-production model of the GFX100.
    His extensive writeup is here:

    https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62780952

    Quoting from his conclusions:

    Will I buy one now? - nope, not yet. If I didn't have the 50S then yes, but having the 50S meets the need for magazine shooting (and some), and whilst IBIS and other upgrades would be nice, they aren't essential or pressing.Also $10k is a lot to spend when your existing $30k spend on the system is mostly under 2 yrs old.
    Will I get one eventually? - Probably. This will be the flagship MF camera in the market for some time I expect, so it'll always be tempting me to upgrade.”


    My own conclusion for now - no need to sit on a fence.
    I have not had my 50S for even a year and I really enjoy using it.

    It will be interesting to follow Jim Kasson what he will find out once he has received his copy of the GFX100. I am looking forward to his - no doubt - insightful reporting on his blog

    Another quote by someone else from said reference, quote:

    Interesting. I did a hands on with the GFX 100 (no S in there by the way) that Fuji sponsored at Camera. West. I’m currently shooting a 50s. Even with the lenses lacking the firmware upgrade, and the pre-production software, the raw files I shot were far and away more detailed and sharp to the point that shooting portraits could be a problem without some serious “flattering” processing.There was something either seriously wrong with your camera, or its settings

    Remarkable. If all this is true, and I mean both experiences, then I'd say there is a production issue or (as suggested) a settings issue.
    If it is a production issue then shame on Fuji for poor QA/QC.

    Thanks Bart.
    Whatever it turns out to be, Fujifilm certainly has a problem to solve.
    So I have read 3 different observations by various folks, namely:

    GFX100 has * sharp images, * has soft images, and finally * has sharp JPGs while the same exposure has soft RAFs.

    I also still wonder in which way the lens firmware version 1.10 affects unintentionally performance on the 50S? For now I will shoot superfine JPGs with the RAFs so that I can compare them.

    I had one example that I probably deleted where the JPG looked fine but the WB of the RAF image looked way off for mixed lighting. I had never observed that before, but also mostly didn’t shoot JPGs with RAFs. I will keep an eye on this as well.


    I am glad I didn’t (pre-)order the GFX100 camera. Not many of them seemed to have been shipped to US customers so far anyway. Oh well.
    With best regards, K-H.

    More feedback, quote:

    "In fact I have loaded the images into Capture One and had another look. I am fairly satisfied that C1 does a better job with GFX-100 files and they look very good.

    The files still look a bit soft at default sharpening, but adding some extra sharpening does equalise the files to the GFX-50S in terms of sharpness."

    Maybe LR (not uptodate yet) is to blame.

    Folks,

    I am not at all in the market for a Fujifilm GFX 100 BUT I would test drive one or rent it in order to see myself if I like IQ.

    I hardly can believe that IQ should be lower by any means than the 50MP derivates and I would not trust a minute in what whoever testers or reviewers found out or didn't find out.

    There was never ever a problem for me here in Austria to get such a camera for testing purposes for a week or two and I guess that cannot be different in the parts of the world where you live.

    So hope to hear soon about all these GFX 100 issues being solved - have fun!

    Thanks Peter.


    Here is an interesting interview with 2 Fuji executives:

    https://www.imaging-resource.com/new...-lenses-100-mp

    My question: How does Fuji use/combine PDAF/CDAF input for S-AF and/or C-AF for the GFX100 or their X-T3?

    TIA.


    A related point from the FUJIFILM GFX100 Owner’s Manual

    INSTANT AF SETTING

    Choose whether the camera focuses using single AF (AF‑S) or continuous AF (AF‑C) when a button to which focus lock or AF-ON is assigned is pressed in manual focus mode.
    Options
    AF-S AF-C

    It really doesn’t say anything about PDAF/CDAF.

    Fujifilm GFX100 sets new benchmark in our studio scene
    https://www.dpreview.com/news/600949...r-studio-scene



    Excellent result for the GFX100.

    Compared to the 50S and 50R another factor of SQRT(2)=1.4 magnification!
    Great for cropping of wildlife shots with the GF250 + 1.4x TC = GF350.
    Instead of FF equivalent of 280mm for a 50MP sensor, it’s like ~400mm for 100MP.
    And another factor of ~1.4x magnification when compared to the Sony A9’s 24MP.
    So, magnification/resolution wise 350mm on GFX100 is equivalent to ~560mm on A9.

    However, 50S images already look excellent and I already got the A9 and lenses.

    I must honestly say that this new GFX 100 and all these reviews, especially the ones using MFD for wildlife, make me want to reenter that Medium Format territory again. I also must say if that happens it definitely would be with the GFX 100

    Thanks Pieter. The GFX100 seems to be a real winner!
    I agree with you, very tempting to add to my 50S and 6 lenses and the 1.4x TC.
    Having the excellent 50S though, I am in no hurry and can wait to see how things shape up. I got all my lenses at a terrific discount during one of the sales Fujifilm offers from time to time. Right now demand for the GFX100 seems to outstrip supply anyway here in the US? We’ll see when it first is listed as “in stock” by the major online stores.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Thanks Bart. My GF250 running on FW version 1.11 now. No issues.
    I assume slight defects must refer to the brief glitch I encountered initially the last time. No problems now.

    In San Diego, we can only get apricots for about a month and time is about up. I LOVE them (perhaps unnaturally so) and am very envious of you right now. And try to get Blenheims, forget it. They used to be everywhere, but are impossible for me to find. The apricots are suffering like the bananas have been for years. Most fruit these days, especially apples, taste mealy compared to what I remember just 10 years ago or so. I have saved some apricot seeds and am going to try to grow them.

    Enjoy and please feel free to send what you don't want, my way.

    Cheers,

    Joel

    Thank you Joel. Well, Bart and others who have followed over the years primarily my Sony and Olympus posts know the funny/sad back story. Here in the mountains of Northern New Mexico are two different kinds of trees, native and non-native.

    The native trees know that after some sunny warm period ice and snow will briefly hit in late spring for a day or two once or twice and avoid having their blossoms then. The non-native trees have not figured that out yet and their spring blossoms get regularly wiped out by the ice and snow of a brief cold spell, like this year the Apple and Plum tree blossoms. For the past several years the Apricot tree blossoms got regularly wiped out as well. So invariably in late spring with the fruit trees in full bloom in warm sunny weather it will freeze and snow over night and the blossoms get wiped out. Therefore no fruits for that year.

    However, this year by merely a day or two miraculously the Apricot tree blossoms avoided the brief ice and snow break in. Voila, we actually have Apricots this year. So, as a running joke, I have been posting pictures of our Apricot tree. BTW our neighbor got Apricots this year as well as lots of cherries. We tried having a Cherry tree a couple of times. Typically after 5 or 6 years of growing successfully, those trees never recovered from a cold and dry winter.
    With best regards, K-H.

    No, he just dislikes Fuji and Leica that I can tell so far. But Zeiss has him in their pocket so no bad reviews about anything Zeiss.

    Forgot to say he sure seems satisfied with any Sony model when comparing menu options to the Fuji.

    I remember asking him why he did not cover the XT-2 when I owned one and he said basically it was not mainstream enough for his readers. Yeah, right.

    Thanks Bart. No doubt the 50R + 50/3.5 is a very attractive system.
    The smallest mMF camera setup I am aware of.

    Using my dominant left eye for photography, I like my 50S with tilt adapter.
    Currently 50S + tilt adapter + battery grip + 45/2.8 is my smallest mMF setup.
    So far I have stayed away from the 63/2.8, reportedly slower external focusing and initial problems that required a redesign of the lens. Occasionally one can still read about malfunctioning of even a redesigned lens.

    I like my 32-64/4 zoom lens just fine, am not interested in the 100-200/5.6 lens as I have the 110/2, 120/4, and 250/4, all superb performers. With regards to the 45-100/4 zoom I will have a closer look at it once it is for sale.

    That leaves my most used 23/4 prime, that I am extremely impressed with.
    With best regards, K-H.
