  2. Very, very nice! So it's actually summer in your country (?). This coming summer for us in the US I'm headed out on a two month photo journey into the Yukon Territories and the Arctic Circle of northern Canada and Alaska. Taking my GFX50r, plus my XH1. I "hope" to have the 100s by that time as well, but we'll see. I have the 30mm F3.5. It's relatively light weight which is why I bought it over the 23. Plus if need be I can shoot vertical pano's. But the 23 is a fine lens.
  3. Interesting... Have you heard back from Fuji? I'm curious. I had that happen on a finepix S2Pro back in the day and Fuji (Edison NJ) where I dropped it off wound up replacing the sensor and shutter assembly free of charge as it fell under their "Pro Services" back then. Bt that was 17 years ago. Best of Luck!
  4. Make sure you are not using electronic shutter for starters. Let us know.
  5. The GFX 45mm F2.8 in FF equivalent is a 35mm F2.0 lens. I use that lens and it's one of Fuji's BEST in my opinion and many others. Might want to check that one out. I own the original APC 35 1.4 (bought it in 2012) for my X series of bodies- that lens in FF is a 52.5mm lens... And you'd have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers to take it away from me. A 35mm 1.4 for the GFX would convert to a 27.3 mm in FF, or say 27mm to round it off. Hope that helps. But, I would check out the 45 2.8. It's fantastic! J
  6. 50R, 30mm, 28 seconds, F7.1, ISO 100. Four shot stacked image to maximize depth of field
  7. Sorry to hear you are having those issues. Have you complained to Fuji Corporate?
  8. My experience with Fuji in Edison NJ, USA has been nothing short of EXCEPTIONAL going back to my FinepixS1 Pro and Finepix S2 Pro's which were basically frankencameras - Nikon lens mounts and Fuji parts. I've dropped the cameras off there to have shutter replaced on a Thursday, and got it back on Monday. Free.
  9. Henry's camera. Roberts Camera and eBay are my go-to's. I second Tonyo1's advice of only selling to and buying from US folks.
  10. Well I went and bought the lens from B&H for US $999.00 instead of the 1199.00 the lens is listed for. I received it, I tested it, and I promptly returned it the next day. The lens looked great on my 50R. It felt solid in the hand. The fit and finish was very, very nice. The aperture ring had a nice solid, but subdued quiet click. If only the the lens performed as well as it looked and felt. Unfortunately my copy of my lens was, in my opinion, sucky. It was very, very soft in the middle, upper portion of the frame as well as the lower middle section. Also, two of the corners were so smeared, even at F11 that I just couldn't deal with it or fix it in LR or Capture One. I tested the lens on a tripod at F4, F5.6, f8, f11 and f16. I found F8 to be the sharpest - it even reduced the smearing in all four corners. However, even though I knew it was manual focus only, and I knew the aperture would not record into the EXIF, that plus the fact the lens was not sharp at all was a no go for me. I'm headed out for a week to Cape Cod and Nantucket Island and I was really looking forward to using an ultra wide on my GFX. I suppose I'll just use my XH1 with my Zeiss 12mm (18mm equiv in FF) for now. That's my short and sweet review of the lens. I really, really wanted to like it and keep it but unfortunately it was way too soft for me.
