Over the past year I have exclusively used Fujifilm cameras, during which time I have tried a lot of different lenses. But there is one lens that I keep reaching for time and time again – and it's an unexpected one.

I have recently been working on a personal project, photographing the people and landscape of Gower, South Wales in the UK, and the Fujifilm GF 100-200mm f/5.6 has been my perfect companion. Not often mentioned with the elite of the GF line-up, the GF 100-200mm often gets overlooked – but for me, it covers both landscape and portraiture perfectly and deserves its place among the best GF mount lenses.
