06 Feb Lens Review: Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f4 R LM WR (Fujifilm GF Format)

Despite the fact that I have an eternal hatred of zoom lenses, I couldn’t stop reaching for the Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f4 R LM WR lens during my review period with it. It’s versatile for sure, and despite its slow aperture it allows a photographer to have a whole lot of focal lengths with a constant aperture without needing to go back and forth to change lenses. As it is, most of the GF lenses are pretty slow, so I don’t feel as bad using a lens like this. With what is essentially a 24-50mm f3 lens, you’re getting an option that will surely give you comparable depth of field equivalency when you compare it to a 24-70mm lens; but not with the light gathering abilities. And for some odd reason, I keep wondering whether or not the engineers have been considering this. Medium format is really geared towards using the cameras and lenses with off-camera flash. I mean, look at the ads on this website–they’re for editorial work!
