Digital Camera World Verdict

Weighing in at 875g or just under a couple of pounds, the GF 32-64mm is a fairly lightweight lens for a medium format zoom. On Fujifilm GFX cameras with upsized image sensors, it gives an ‘effective’ 25-51mm zoom range, taking you from wide-angle to standard angles of view with a flick of the wrist, and with a constant f/4 aperture rating. That makes the lens tremendously versatile for a whole variety of shooting scenarios. The weather-sealed build quality is deeply satisfying, handling is assured, and image quality is exceptional. All in all, it’s a terrific lens.

The Fujinon GF 32-64mm F4 R LM WR is built for the journey. Thanks to the upscaled medium format image sensors of Fujifilm GFX series cameras, the zoom range equates to 25-51mm in full-frame terms. That gives you everything from a generously wide viewing angle to an entirely natural, standard perspective, ideally suited to a vast range of shooting scenarios without the need to swap between different lenses. That said, it naturally lacks any telephoto potential, compared with typical 24-70mm zooms for full-frame cameras.
