Fujifilm’s offerings for its GF medium-format system have expanded with the addition of the Fujinon GF 45mm F2.8 R WR. It will provide a 36mm equivalent view of the world when used on the company’s GFX 50S, and is dust- and weather-resistant. Lens construction includes a 9 blade aperture and 8 groups with 11 elements, including one aspherical and two ED lenses.

Fujifilm plans to launch a GF 250mm F4 R LM OIS WR telephoto prime and a GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter next year, both of which are hinted to on an existing roadmap. The 250mm gives a 198mm equivalent view.

A firmware update is also on the way for the GFX 50S to add support for Fuji’s X Raw Studio and better functionality with third party studio flash controllers. Here’s the full list of improvements:
