Fujifilm Launches GF 23mm and 110mm lenses for the GFX 50S

Fujinon GF 23mm F4 R LM WR and GF 110mm F4 R LM WR

Following the launch of the GFX 50S Mirrorless Medium Format camera, Fujifilm has released the 23mm and 110mm lenses for it. The GF 23mm F4 R LM WR has a 35mm equivalence of 18mm on the GFX 50S, is weather resistant, and works right down to -10ºC. It features a linear focus motor, 9 aperture blades and a Nano GI coating. It’ll be available for US$2,599 in late June.

The GF 110mm F2 R LM WR, on the other hand, is a portrait lens with a 35mm equivalence of 87mm when used on the GFX 50S. It is also weather resistant, has 9 aperture blades, a linear focus motor and a Nano GI coating. It will be available for US$2,799 in late June as well.

In addition to the two lenses, Fujifilm has updated their roadmap for future medium format lenses. A 45mm F2.8R WR (equivalent to 36mm), a telephoto prime and a teleconverter will be available later this year.

Last but not least, Fujifilm will soon release the View Camera Adapter G, which lets you use the GFX 50S with 4×5 large format cameras.

Fujifilm Finally Launches the Weather-sealed Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR APS-C Lens

The Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR (what a mouthful) was announced quite some time back in one of Fujifilm’s lens roadmaps and it has been highly anticipated since. The wait is finally over and Fujifilm finally launched it today. This acronym-laden lens is no ordinary superzoom. It is designed to go along with the weather-sealed Fujifilm X-T1 and is the first weather-resistant lens in the Fujifilm lineup of lenses.

What is more impressive however, is the stabilisation technology Fujifilm has built into the lens. Utilising two high-precision gyro sensors, it promises an unprecedented 5 stops of image stabilisation. This means that you can shoot at 1/30s what would previously require a shutter speed of 1/1000th of a second and still have a sharp image (unless of course, your subject moves.)

The lens will set you back US$900 and is available from July.

YS: It all sounds nice, but I bet all of you are waiting for the f/2.8 zooms, right? Right?
