Fujifilm has formally announced the Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR lens for its GFX medium format system – the lens first appeared on the company’s roadmap late last year. When mounted on a camera like the GFX 100, the lens is equivalent to 40mm and, according to Fujifilm, can handle the resolution of that 100MP camera with ease. This compact (relatively speaking) lens is just 48mm (1.9″) long and weighs in at 335g (11.8oz), making it the smallest and lightest GF-mount lens at time of launch.
It has a total of nine elements, one of which being aspherical, as well as a nine-blade aperture. A linear motor moves the focus elements quickly and accurately, according to Fujifilm. The minimum focus distance is 55cm (21.6″).
The lens is sealed against dust and moisture and functions down to -10°C/+14°F.
The GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR will be available in late September for $1000.
