Lovely cityscapes! It seems you use pretty much all Leica R lenses on your GFX. Would it be possible to share your opinions and insights about them? Would be great to hear your opinions on sharpness and coverage of the GFX sensor.

I have some R-glass but always stayed away from the longer focal lengths as I had once an Apo-Telyt-R 180mm that was quite a bit worse than its Canon equivalent, even at landscape images.

Thank you!

i have only 2 R lenses, the 180 elmarit R v2 and telyt R 250mm, they work perfectly, no vignetting, single R>G adapter [important]
the 250 obviously needs 1/1000th handheld to stay sharp as its so heavy, literally need to exhale and press the shutter like a rifle !

on the M lens side, the 50 summilux asph and 90 APO summicron work perfectly, slight "soft" vignette at certain apertures which can easily be killed in LR or C1, again a single M>G novoflex adapter [important]

the M lenses are bitingly sharp, the 50 does show a tiny bit of smearing in the extreme corners but generally i dont use the extreme corners anyways

ElCan 90 summicron LTM [1958] has a tiny bit of soft vignetting up to 5.6 then it becomes a "hard" vignette which needs cropping, again i dont care much as i usually shoot at 2.8 with that lens

the GFX with manual focus+peaking is great

here is an example: Between f4 and f8, ISO 125, 1/500th, FULL 8256x6192 resized to 1280, jpg from camera, acros red, gfx50r+leica 50mm summilux ASPH/Osaka

Just for grins, we put the Leica APO Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH with Novoflex adapter. on the GFX 100S, and the vignette is a rather interesting oblong shaped one.

But where it is in focus, it is bitingly sharp. 100% crop.
