Andyyy: It might be F8 at 400mm but still better than the usual 70-300 and lighter too. The newest Canon 70-300 USM weights 710g, this 100-400 only 635g.

So you get a 70-300 with extra 100mm on top for no additional weight penalty.

Only that 70-300 have more zoom range.

Diameter and Length should be opposite way.

Reilly Diefenbach: You want the ears that far out of focus? Really??

Actually here you get all out of focus :)

This lens is missing only that small 1% that should be sharp in image.

I am really impressed with new 35-70mm lens. Well done Fuji.

kristian1: Hope for Panasonic that this is just bad sample of lens.

Those two examples show not good enough sharpness at sides , it is not f8 but at f5 it should be sharper.

Edges are too soft even stoped down for prime lens.

Genius patent,

You can see at the same time how image will look in vertical and horizontal orientation and zooming is done by moving eye closer / further from camera, well done Canon :)

Bigsensorisbest: I’ll have to buy this. I’ve found the GF23mm is the weakest prime in the system anyway so perhaps I won’t notice much difference stopped down.

I am using 100mp Gfx100 (just Dpreview limit files to 50mp)
You can post your samples in Medium format forum and we will take a look at it.

This is first time I hear about bad copy of 23mm while some other gf lenses had some copy variations.

Then you probably have bad sample as mine and also from others on medium format forum the lens is sharp from edge to edge even wide open.

You can't have better IQ than GFX100 and GF23mm, only better option is 50,000 USD Phase One.
Yes I have used and tried best FF cameras with best lenses.

And my opinion is that GF23mm is great lens, I even provided samples to back that up.

You can make your own conclusion, my post was because of above mentioned reason.

I would like to see 'bad' samples from Bigsensorisbest

I do own and use it for landscapes, and I commented here in first place only because people may get wrong impression.

Here I just uploaded two samples:

Because this is not based only on my opinion but many enough people so I could make this statement.

Probably you will loose all the benefits from medium format with lens like this , probably if fish eye is needed FF is better option.

This is so false information , GF23mm is one of best primes.

kristian1: I am wondering what bounces so much light back to him, as it is very dark surface , also there are details in highlights.

I just took another look at this, we can see that there are many reflective spots which each of them reflect some light source , the biggest one is under his head very bright spot , but also there are few more small reflective parts.
Also we can see that there is clear shadow in his right arm which probably caused by light source on the his left side (we can see his left hand is brighter on the side from where light comes and his left hand is making shadow on his right hand).

Also there appear to be quite strong gradient from his feet to the far spots in background , where we can see that actually man is brighter then background that is exposed to direct sunlight (while we have "close to zero" lights in front of him).

Why would anyone mention flat earth here..
To me here shadows looked to bright for small white surface to bounce that much light back , you can try it with white reflector and it will not do much at this size and distance . I am not saying it is not real.
Actually film cameras had quite large dynamic range and it my be possible.

Also the bright small spot under head clearly shows reflection of light and chances are slim that this small part is reflecting the light from the man who is taking the image.
