Finally got my architecture camera all set up with the GFX50R. Loving it so far with Canon TS-E Lenses with a good amount of movements without vignetting. I just ordered the AS Pentax 645 adapter as well to try out some of those lenses as well with a larger image circle.

It's good to see that Arca got that plate out, that allows the direct mounting of the Canon TS-E lenses, I wish Arca would make one for the 19mm Nikkor.

How well do the Canon lenses hold up on the 50r? Corners, sharp, and do you see a lot of fall off or vignetting?

Would be nice to see Fuji come out with a true shift lens, but they don't seem to understand the need for such an optic. I would love a 45mm or 35mm shift lens designed around the Fuji GF mount.

Honestly, they hold up quite well and would say the TS-E 50mm is probably the sharpest and cleanest Canon TS-E lens in the line up. I get a good amount of movements with the combo and gives me the ability to rise/fall and shift indepentendly. Of course you'll start to see the outter edges of the imgage circle before you run out of movements on the RM3di plate bu thats a limitation of the lens image circle not the device itself.

I also am adapting Pentax 645 lenses via Arcas adapter as well and I am able to get 19mm of rise/fall and 10mm of shift at the same time and zero vinegetting. Corners are sharp at f8+ and I'm pleased with the images. Not a cheap setup and definetly not for everyone but I love the versitility that this setup provides me.

I don't know how to move the post? Didn't know I posted in the wrong forum? Sorry I'm new here lol
You didn't post in the 'wrong' forum at all - and thank you for an interesting thread.
What Ken was advising ws that because the MF forum in GETDPI is camera 'agnostic' it gets more traffic - funny that! -:)

Cheers

I would also like to know what adapter you used to attach the GFX to the RM3. Do you happen to know the distance from sensor to lens mount? It would be fantastic if the Schneider 72mm could be used. I have an Actus and am able to mount a GFX/Sony and with the GFX I am able to get as wide as the 72mm.
