01 Feb Hands-on with Fujifilm’s new XF 27mm, XF 70-300 and GF 80mm lenses

Fujifilm released a trio of lenses alongside the announcement of the new GFX 100S and X-E4 cameras. The GF 80mm F1.7 R WR is a medium format short-telephoto lens for GF bodies, such as the aforementioned GFX 100S, while the XF 27mm R WR and XF 70-300 F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR are for the company’s APS-C X-mount cameras.

The GF 80mm F1.7 R WR (63mm equiv.) fills the gap in Fujifilm’s medium format lens lineup; it now sits between the 63mm F2.8 R WR (50mm equiv.) and 110mm F2 R LM WR (87mm equiv.). For full-frame users, it’s a bit of an unusual focal length, but it’s also the fastest lens in the GF system at this time. So, if you’re looking for a lot of control over depth-of-field in this focal length range, the 80mm F1.7 may be the lens you’re looking for.
For a medium-format lens, the GF 80mm is fairly small. Its maximum diameter is 95mm (3.7″) and it measures 99mm (3.9″) in length. The lens weighs in at a not-too-heavy 795 grams (1.8 pounds). It’s threaded for 77mm filters and includes a plastic hood.
As with all GF lenses,
