This is not a review, I am simply sharing the raw files which you could cook up your dishes and taste them and draw a conclusion yourself on the lenses which you would like to acquire for similar usage.

Here’s the final (compilations) image circle test:

Appreciations:
I would like to sincerely show my appreciation to Darren, Kim Yee, Chris, Bryan, Stefan, Inessa, Michael, Xiao Ming, Markus, Jim and John whom have supported, shared and contributed their findings in the early days on lens image circles testing on GFX 50S, and you.

You can only do it with a shift lens shifting the camera while the lens is stationary, ie simulating having a bigger sensor. A multi row or single row pan can't do that.

Cheers!

Just wondering what the best technique is to use the 32-64mm in situations where correct perspective is required and you do not want excessive foreground? In effect, simulating what a TS-E lens does.

Is it best to tilt up and digitally correct perspective that way? Or is it better to do a wider shot, have verticals straight, then crop into the image?

Both these techniques result in a smaller file but am wondering which is an easier technique and results in less file loss? If cropping into the image, you are losing some on the wide end whereas I feel not so as much as tilting up and then correcting verticals in post.

Would also be nice to be able to see the result on location. I have tried this with the Fuji App and then Photoshop on my phone but to say that is a clunky process is an understatement!

Thanks, look forward to hearing any thoughts :)
