The Lens

Lightweight, compact and an easy to use telephoto zoom for the GFX series of cameras. Fujifilm have created a lens with superbly sharp optics, especially at infinity and in the corners where other lenses of this type usually suffer.

I took a pre production sample of the GF 100-200 to Morocco at the end of 2018 on a recce for this forthcoming workshop in April 2019 and I must admit I was not expecting to like the lens because of the rather slow f/5.6 optic. I must learn not to be prejudiced because wow, I was pleasantly surprised indeed. I found that wide open the lens delivered some decent separation in my portraits and having the ability to zoom to fine tune my compositions made the whole shooting experience easy.

1. Morocco offers up some fantastic shooting locations and I took a bit of time out between scheduled shoots to give this lens a try. It was not part of the plan but I got a last minute call from the Fujifilm UK team and the lens landed on my desk an hour before I left for the airport. Of course curiosity got the better of me so I took some shots to get to know how this lens performs. I am shown here with my GFX on a tripod but in general use this body and lens combination would be equally suited to hand held shooting or in conjunction with a monopod.
