Two new lenses have been added to Fujifilm’s medium-format lens roadmap: the Fujinon GF 30mm F3.5 R WR and GF 80mm F1.7 R WR. The 30mm F3.5 provides a 24mm equivalent focal length and will slot in comfortably between the existing GF 23mm F4 and 45mm F2.8.

The 80mm F1.7 will provide a 63mm equiv. focal length and, at F1.34 equivalent, becomes the brightest lens that Fujifilm has developed for its GFX system. Fujifilm promises it will match the optical performance of its excellent 110mm F2. Both lenses are weather-sealed.

The introduction of these two additional lenses to the roadmap will bring Fujifilm’s total number of GF lenses to 13. No pricing or availability is given at this time.

Valhalla, New York – January 23, 2020 – FUJIFILM Corporation has unveiled the latest plans to add to its Family of GF Lenses, designed exclusively for the GFX Mirrorless Camera System; which is equipped with Fujifilm’s large format (43.8mm x 32.9mm) image sensor, an imaging surface approximately 1.7 times the size of 35mm full-frame sensors*1.

Bringing the eventual total to 13 lenses, this expanded GF lens lineup will accommodate even broader shooting categories and diverse shooting styles.

More about the two lenses recently added to the GF lens development roadmap:

FUJINON GF30mmF3.5 R WR: An impressive, wide-angle, prime lens. This wide angle 30mm lens is an equivalent 24mm focal length in the 35mm film format and is a perfect solution for landscape photography.

This lens will be a slim, compact, and lightweight lens offering incredible resolving power for high-resolution imaging sensors.

FUJINON GF80mmF1.7 R WR: A unique, wide-aperture, standard lens. A standard 80mm lens with an equivalent focal length of 63mm in the 35mm film format, which is incredibly suitable for portraiture and making images in low-light conditions.

This will be the lens with the widest aperture among GF lenses and be an incredible solution for portrait photographers who want beautiful, creamy bokeh with their GFX System Cameras.

This compact and lightweight lens will have a wider angle of view than the highly popular GF100mmF2 R LM WR and deliver the same level of incredible image quality.
