Fuji Intros Two More Medium Format Lenses, a Lens Roadmap and Firmware for the GFX 50S

April 19, 2017

Fujifilm is moving rapidly to build out its assortment of medium format lenses for the new GFX 50S with a pair of new lenses and an updated lens roadmap announced today.

The GF110mmF2 R LM WR (equivalent to 87mm in 35mm format) and the GF23mmF4 R LM WR (equivalent to 18mm in 35mm format) are both due in June for $2,800 and $2,600, respectively.

Like other lenses in the line, the two new models were built to resolve over 100-megapixels. They’re weather-sealed and use a linear motor to drive autofocusing.

The GF23mm stops down to f/32 and offers 9 aperture blades. It can focus on objects as close as 38cm.

The GF110mm stops down to f/22 and has a minimum focusing distance of 0.9m. It also offers 9 rounded aperture blades.

Fujifilm has revealed six G Mount lenses to date. An updated roadmap adds a new telephoto prime lens and a teleconverter.

Coming in the spring, a firmware update for the GFX 50S will enable Wi-Fi tethering, improved exposure compensation and better autofocus in difficult scenes, Fuji says.
