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

    Similarly in spirit to the thread https://www.getdpi.com/forum/4-3rds-...liarities.html that I started in 4/3rds Cameras I would like to see in this thread a discussion of FUJIFILM GFX cameras, Firmware updates, native and non-native lenses, images taken with them, and related subjects of general interests. In addition to the superb native GFX lenses, there are many other non-native FF lenses with large enough image circles to be of interest for use on Fuji GFX cameras.

    Steve Spencer over at FM has two posts, namely

    https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...23/24#14845479
    https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...23/25#14849306

    in which he discusses a long list of FF lenses that have been explored on Fuji GFX cameras. In the first reference above several lenses of interest to me are mentioned, quote:

    "• Nikon Noct Nikkor 58 f/1.2 - Photographylife: https://photographylife.com/reviews/...mount-adapter; also jasvyphoto: Jasvy Photography : Fujifilm GFX 50s Lens adoption possiblility
    • Leica R 80 f/1.4 - Steve Spencer - good coverage of even 4 X 3 tested at portrait distances but not infinity
    • Leica R 180 f/2.8 non-APO - Good coverage of 4 X 3 from f/4 even at infinity Jim Kasson: https://blog.kasson.com/the-last-wor...ifilm-gfx-50s/
    • Leica R 280 f/4 APO - Good coverage of even 4 X 3. Jim Kasson: https://blog.kasson.com/the-last-wor...ifilm-gfx-50s/
    "

    We (my oldest son and I) systematically explored the Noct-Nikkor 58/1.2 lens on 50S for MFD and Infinity focus distances, with and without a hood, and for all the image ratios the 50S offers. Generally speaking, larger apertures and longer focus distances vignette a bit more, as does the use of a hood. Here are some images, we took with the Noct-Nikkor on the GFX 50S.

    @ f/1.2


    @ f/5.6


    Crop @ 400%, note the reflection of the photographer off the Lady Bug


    @ f/1.4


    @ f/5.6, vignetting in the corners, potentially lots of Apricots this year.


    @ f/5.6

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

    To kick this off I very much like using Mamiya 645 lenses with a Fotodiox adapter on the fisheye, 300/5.6 and the 500. I also have a 105-210 zoom which I have not yet tested enough to know its IQ on the 50R sensor. Will have to look for some images. But here's one taken with the fisheye and cropped a bit.

    My answer if the current maxed out iMac Pro is any indication it could be just south of $20k. Keeping in mind it needs a monitor that price could exceed $30k if the monitor is the new Apple 6K one.

    Well Lou, your guess is a lot better than the $50k or $60k estimate of the article.

    I’ve heard it would top off in the ~$35k range for the computer fully loaded and that’s a lot of money... I don’t wonder if it would be smart for Apple to consider having a lower priced modular desktop option maybe based on the AMD chipsets since they seem to have fewer issues than many of the newest Intel developed chipsets. Also the Ryzen 3 and Navi based chipsets are very competitively priced which could give Apple a non-Pro Mac in the $1500-3000 base price range. Even if they maxed out to around 512GB of RAM and only allowed dual GPU’s, Dual internal HDD expansion, plus the option for the Apple Afterburner... that would be an excellent option for the small business or average content creator with no desire for a Windows machine.

    Excellent feedback in general.
    Existing Tilting Adapter works just fine.
    Camera size about the same as 50S with grip, but GFX100 heavier.
    IBIS works seamlessly, is a necessity for 100MP.

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

    My assumption is these updates enable the GFX100 to PDAF the GFX lenses.
    For the 50S and 50R no functionality is added as their sensors don't have PDAF elements.
    So after the updates the lenses should function as before on the 50S and 50R though.

    In conclusion, the updated lenses can be used on 50S, 50R, and GFX100.

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

    I have my GFX-100 and am trying to update lenses for PD AF, but getting nowhere.

    Fuji say to hold down to DISP/BACK button while powering on (with new lens firmware on freshly formatted memory card) to access firmware update screen.
    But... I just get a normal startup that way. Can never access FW update screen.

    What am I dong wrong here. ?
    Thanks

    (firmware is just put onto root of card in .DAT format, right? I'm not supposed to put it into a DCIM folder)

    Which lens do you have attached?
    Only one SD card in camera?

    Do you have a 50S or 50R to use for the firmware update?

    The 110mm f2.
    Just the one card in slot 1. ( I tried slot 2 made no difference)

    No other body, just the 100.

    Thanks. Can you expose an image, see it on the LCD, reformat the sd card in camera, switch camera off, then on while holding down the other button required to check firmware versions?

    If that should work, next step would be to copy the corresponding firmware update file to the root of the sd card.

    Good luck.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Got it.
    My fault entirely, was pressing the wrong button - the one below the 'Disp/Back' lettering not the one below. (the lettering is in between the two)
    Duh. Oh well.
    Thanks for your help.

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

    I updated my GFX lenses today in this order:

    GFUP0002.DAT GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR Firmware Update Ver.1.10
    GFUP0003.DAT GF120mmF4 R LM OIS WR Macro Firmware Update Ver.1.10
    GFUP0004.DAT GF110mmF2 R LM WR Firmware Update Ver.1.10
    GFUP0005.DAT GF23mmF4 R LM WR Firmware Update Ver.1.10
    GFUP0006.DAT GF45mmF2.8 R WR Firmware Update Ver.1.10
    GFUP0007.DAT GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR Firmware Update Ver.1.10

    Everything now seems to be working just fine.
    However there was temporarily a nasty surprise!

    After completing updating the GF250 I tried taking some pictures. Surprise, surprise, ... I could hear pretty loud the lens focussing and image stabilizing activity. Focusing seemed occasionally pretty sketchy. I switched my 50S camera off and on. Sometimes it worked fine, then again it did not. I finally concluded that the camera/lens system did not behave according to the latest firmware version 1.10.

    I then turned OIS on the lens off, took a few shots, switched it back on, took more shots, turned the 50S off and took the lens off.

    After reattaching the lens the issue seems resolved. All my lenses are now working just fine, including the two with OIS on.

    I believe switching OIS off and on did the trick. YMMV.

    That's a scary experience, K-H.
    Glad I didn't try updating my GF250 ...
    Are there more reports like this that you know of ?

    TIA

    PS So far I only updated my GF23. Update: and a few minutes ago my GF32-64.

    Thanks Bart. Oh well, life goes on.
    I wonder if I could have avoided this experience by first taking the lens off the 50S before reattaching and using it?

    Anyway, lots of Apricots this year. All the neighborhood Apricot trees seem to agree. Here is a shot of our tree last evening and this morning.

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

    Received my GFX 100 on Friday. Have tried 5 different lenses with no problems. Am most impressed with the image stabilizer.

    Also impressed by fast and accurate focus.

    It's a heavy camera, about like a Canon 1ds. Files are huge, around 200Mb RAW. Compressed RAW about 100 Mb. The firmware does not show it as "lossless" compressed.

    Serial # 1138.

    K-H,

    OIS and IBIS seem to like each otherClick image for larger version. 

Name:	Stop300.jpg 
Views:	21 
Size:	583.2 KB 
ID:	142759. It seems to be the best stabilizer that I've used. Have had Canon and Nikon OIS and have the Sony AR7III.

    The lenses that I've tried are the GFX 23, 45, 120, 32-64, and 100-200. Don't have the 250. I updated the lens firmware on the GFX 50R before I received the GFX 100. Whether that makes a difference or if the problem reported is related to the GFX 250 would be a guess. Or maybe it was just a bug in that particular lens.

    So far haven't tried the camera on a tripod. I'm not an engineer so haven't attempted any scientific testing.

    Below is a handheld 100% crop that is about 300 ft. from where I was standing on my front porch. Not sure if I have it right as haven't done this before on this site.

    Mmm, I don't know. When viewing at large the image lacks bite. Or to put it differently: it's not sharp.

    Focus seems on STOP sign. It is sharp IMHO.

    Hi there André,

    Sorry, but I'm too poor(ish) to afford me a GFX100 .. . We'll have to wait for Rich to give us some detailed information.
    But this image reminds me of a post from Victor (vjbelle) in the MF forum: https://www.getdpi.com/forum/medium-...reactions.html

    Best regards.

    Got to agree with you on the first remark, K-H. Hopefully Rich has an explanation to it.
    However, if you really think it's sharp either I need new glasses or a new monitor ...

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

    I agree, it doesn't look sharp on my screen either on the shot in the forum. On my computer, a 27" iMac it appears very sharp to me before I reduced size. For whatever reason it seems more than 100% on the forum shot. Not sure what I did. Haven't posted a photo here before.
    Just checked my info and the posted shot is only 671Kb which probably explains the less than sharp appearance.
    What is the largest file that I can post on here?
    The original file is 38.8" X 29.1". In PSD it's 288 Mb. Was shot at F5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO 100

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

    Hi Rich,

    it’s possible you overshot it and instead of 100% the final crop is beyond that at let’s say 150% or so. That could certainly explain the softness.
    As for file size I’d say 288 Mb is overkill (), but 671 Kb should be about perfect.
    Try to keep the size to 1600x1200 pixels.

    Of course you can be 'on focus' with IBIS or IOS, but if your camera's AF in some way fails (or your eye-sight for that matter), it could still end-up in an out-of-focus 'soft' image.
    But whatever, I'm hoping we're dealing here with an user-error (sorry, Rich) and not a camera-error.
