Since the lens used for Fuji Panoram G617 is EBC Fujinon SW f8/105mm, which is the one developed for 4 x 5" camera and has a large image circle, there are less distortion and insufficiency of marginal lumination so that high-resolution image can be taken. Also, the lense is interchangeable on G617.
