03 Feb Fujinon GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR Review
Source: Fujifilm Insider
The Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 is the sixth lens in the Fujifilm GFX system, following up on last summer’s GF 23mm f/4 and GF 110mm f/2. Arguably, those two lenses were more exciting additions due to their unique qualities. On the other hand, a 35mm-equivalent lens is simply a must-have for any camera system. I’ve never had a 35mm prime in my own kit, but no matter your camera of choice, a good general-purpose wide angle prime lens is a nice addition.
Like other lenses in the GFX lineup, the GF 45mm f/2.8 employs a straightforward design with weather sealing, a manual aperture ring and a fairly hefty price tag. Let’s see if the GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR can deliver the same kind of optical quality and great handling as the other GF lenses I’ve used.
