Fujifilm has just announced the GF 35-70mm F4.5-5.6 WR zoom lens for their GFX line of medium-format digital cameras. Offering a 35mm-equivalent focal range of 28-55mm, it’s intended as a lightweight, everyday walkaround zoom lens that doesn’t compromise on image sharpness or build quality. When ‘collapsed’, the lens is just 74mm (2.9″) long.

The GF 35-70mm has 11 lens elements in nine groups, including one aspherical element and two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements. It also features a close-focusing distance of 35cm (13.8 in) from the sensor, giving subjects 0.28x magnification. A 9-bladed, rounded aperture should help ensure pleasing out-of-focus highlights and bokeh, and the front filter size measures in at a reasonable 62mm.

The GF 35-70mm F4.5-5.6 WR is expected to be available in late November 2021 at a suggested retail price of $999.95. It’s also included as a kit with the GFX 50S II camera at a premium of around $500.
