In February 2017, Fujifilm introduced the GFX 50S, their medium format mirrorless camera, to wide acclaim. This week they made good on promises to release new lenses for the camera with a mid-range telephoto and a super wide-angle lens, both arriving in June.
The Fujinon GF 110mm f/2 R LM WRlooks to beaimed at portrait photographers. It’s a medium telephoto lens with a focal length equivalent to 87mm in 35mm-terms, featuring an aperture of f/2 at its widest – which should make the most of the medium format GFX-50S and lead to some very pleasing bokeh effects when shooting wide open.
Meanwhile, the Fujinon GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR is a super-wide angle model with an equivalent focal length of 18mm in 35mm-format terms that should prove popular with landscape and architecture photographers.
Fuji has released a great series of stunning YouTube videos demonstrating how different photographers and artists are using these lenses in their work. These artists offer a beautiful explanation of the nuances of these lenses and why they are such valuable tools. Check them out below.
