It's been reported on this forum that the 35-70 GF lens front-focuses at minimum focusing distance using AF-S. Supposedly, it's worst at 70 mm, so that's where I tested, using the GFX 100S.

I made three images at MFD, using AF-S. Developed in LrC with default settings except for WB.

MFD is very close, and you can't used a inkjet printed target like the one I used and get the best results, but I see no issue here.

Maybe it's related to the lens batch?

Fwiw, it took a few attempts but it's possible to get 50S II kits with good copies of the lens. The serial on my latest lens is quite a bit later than the last one so I'm assuming there was a problem with an early batch.

There were no parts available for a repair so swapping the kit again was the only option. Seems a shame because the body was fine.
