I am just playing around with the "XPan" perspective, which means panoramic images similar to what you get from the analog (filmroll based) Hasselblad/Fuji XPan camera.

Additionally, I found the Tamron 45/1.8 lens to work absolutely beautifully (as well in manual focus mode). Such a gem on a Fujifilm GFX camera. Now I start to understand why this particular lens is so appreciated. You would never think that it is "just" a fullframe lens. It covers the larger Fuji sensor beautifully.

Really cool to work with such lenses, giving us some extra options besides Fujinon GF lenses. The more i use the GFX camera system, the more i start to get a "hang" of it; the feeling and everything in between, the nuances, the tips and tricks, together the small annoyances, limitations and advantages.


Indoor usage / free hand

I usually set up the Fujifilm GFX 50s II camera with a variable ISO up to 3200 - so that I have enough room to take indoor photos (free hand). Of course the Canon EOS R6 together with really bright lenses, are superior - no doubt. With lenses the unique Laowa Argus 28/1.2 lens or the RF 50/1.2 L

Nevertheless, now I am into trying to get a better feeling with the digital medium format camera, because I feel clumsy and at odds with the Fujifilm GFX 50s II. It isn't exactly an intuitive camera. And quite larger than you would expect, especially with the in general larger lenses.

The Mitakon 65/1.4 for example weights a whopping 1 kg.
