Fujifilm adds three new GFX lenses to roadmap

It’s been a busy day for Fujifilm at Photokina 2018.

Not only do we have two new arrivals on the GFX camera scene – the 100MP GFX 100S and the slimmed down, more affordable GFX 50R – but three new lenses have also been added to the GFX roadmap.

Fujifilm GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR

First, the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, which covers the 100-200mm focal range that has long been clamoured for by GFX users. Its focal length offers a field of view equivalent to 79-158mm on a camera with a 35mm full-frame sensor, and if this still isn’t enough reach for you, it can be paired with the GF1.4X TC WR teleconverter to boost itself up to 140mm-280mm (111-221mm equivalent).

Fujifilm GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR

Second in the announcement is the Fujifilm GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR, a standard prime, which Fujifilm says will be the smallest and lightest lens in the GFX range, and is thus designed to complement the sleek new GFX-50R. Its 50mm focal length works out to 40mm equivalent.

Fujifilm GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR

Third, we have the GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR, a mid-telephoto zoom whose 45-100mm range is equivalent to 36-79mm in full-frame terms. It and the 100-200mm join the pre-existing GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR and the teleconverter to make a set of zoom lenses that cover a total focal range of 32-280mm, or 25-221mm equivalent.

With these three additions, the GFX lens range now comprises a total of eleven models. Exact word on pricing and release date for the new optics is still to be confirmed.
