09 May Lens Review: Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 R WR (Fujifilm G Format)

Source: Fujifilm Insider

Of course, the closest thing to a normal prime lens had to be the first thing that Fujifilm announced for their Medium format G Format; and to that end we got the Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 R WR lens. It’s an interesting move for Fujifilm. You see, when the X series was announced, the company debuted at least one f1.4 lens. But this time around, we got slow lenses. Yes, I’m aware that this is medium format, but there are f1.8 lenses in the 645 format–which is larger than G format.

Nevertheless, the Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 is a fantastic lens that I wasn’t sure I’d like. But a number of factors had me coming back to it over and over again.

Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 R WR Pros and Cons

Pros

  • One of the faster G format lenses on the market at the moment
  • Good image quality that is overly sharp when shooting portraits
  • Very versatile lens
  • Weather sealing
  • Fast focusing
  • Nice feel

Cons

  • This is very personal, but I want faster medium format lenses for Fujifilm.
  • Though this is a good lens I’m not sure it’s good enough to where you can clearly tell the difference between this lens and a 50mm lens in a 35mm full frame format.
