Fujifilm announces two new lenses and a new development plan for interchangeable G-Mount lenses

The first model announced is a zoom


GF45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR for Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras, and another new lens is the affordable Fujinon XC 35mm F2 fix for Fujifilm X cameras with APS-C sensor. In addition, the company also unveiled an updated roadmap for GF medium format lenses, revealing plans for further development of the series.


Key features of the GF45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR lens

The lens optical circuitry consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical elements, one Super ED element and one ED. The design effectively controls spherical aberration, curvature of field and chromatic aberration, delivering razor-sharp images.

The use of an inner focus system minimized the size and weight of the focus group, which is driven by a linear motor to achieve fast, quiet and high-precision autofocus.

The lens is equipped with an image stabilization system whose efficiency is rated at 5 exposures according to CIPA , enabling photographers to make maximum use of the GFX’s high-resolution sensor, especially when shooting handheld images.

At 1005g, 144.5mm long and 93mm diameter, the lens is extremely compact and portable for the Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras.

The lens allows you to shoot in the most difficult weather conditions. It withstands freezing temperatures down to -10°C and has 11 seals on the body to keep moisture and dust out

Price and availability

The GF45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR will be available from the end of February 2020. The lens will be priced at 164,999 roubles for the American market


Key features of the Fujinon XC 35mm F2 lens

Adopts the same optical design as the original FUJINON XF35mm F2 R WR – 9 elements in 6 groups including two aspherical elements to guarantee high definition images even at the maximum aperture of F2.0.

An auto-focusing lens system that moves compact and lightweight elements with a stepper motor for silent, accurate and fast auto-focus. Street Photography enthusiasts that value capturing the moment will appreciate this advantage.

Unlike the older model, the new lens barrel is made of durable plastics. The lens also lacks dust/moisture protection and has no aperture control ring. All this made it possible to achieve a weight of only 130 grams and an affordable price without sacrificing quality.
