Another shot from the Arboretum using the GFX 50R with Hasselblad CF 80/2.8 Planar. Interesting range of colors developing in the trees this fall.

Thanks Louis. I'm using the Fotodiox HB V to GFX adapter. Very solid construction, good fit, both to lens and camera. The built in tripod foot is arca swiss compatible and fits perfectly on my PD travel tripod with no need for an additional adapter plate.Beautiful colours, Carl. What adaptor are you using for the 80/2.8?
Louis, I haven't looked critically at the edges, but just casual inspection doesn't reveal any issues with either the 80 or 180 that I use the most. My 40 distagon is very sharp on center, but there is some fall off in sharpness towards the edges. I'll try some "brick wall" tests to check this out.Carl, what are the edges of the frame like? I'd love to try the 80/2.8 or even the 100/3.5. My favourite Hass lens was actually the Distagon 50mm but I feel with the GF 50/3.5 I've probably got a better lens.
I'm also using vintage MF lenses on my 50r. I haven't tried 35mm mode but have changed the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 3:2, which seems to reduce vignetting, at least on a 35mm focal length lens.Trying another old MF lens on the GFX 50R. This is the Contax C/Y 28/2.8 Zeiss Distagon. It does vignette in the corners so shot in 35mm mode to yield a vignetting free 30MP image file. Very compact little lens on the GFX that produces a sharp image.
