This looks very natural, filmic. But to my eye at 100% magnification, it looks like it was taken on 50mp full frame camera and sized up to 100mp with AI software. I much prefer the eye-watering sharpness of the 50S/R at 100%.

Two words: "eff" and "ten".

But f/10 is great on a GFX 100x if you want to avoid aliasing.

OTOH, some people apparently like aliasing.

And, by the way, you can get much the same crunchy GFX 50x look from GFX 100x raws by downsampling to 50 MP with the right -- or, viewed from another perspective, the wrong -- interpolation method. If will be hard to reproduce the false color, though.

Probably why I prefer to shoot f/5.6 on either format (35mm and 44x33) and let the DOF chips fall where they may. Looks like that shot could work for two stacked f/5.6 images, which are easy to blend in Photoshop with a simple mask over one of the two shot layers.
