Fujifilm Adds Two New GF Lenses for GFX Medium Format Mirrorless Cameras (More On The Way)
If you've spent any time reading up on the incredible Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format Mirrorless Camera, you already know it captures ultra-sharp photos with its 51.4MP image sensor (that's 1.7x larger than a 35mm Full Frame sensor). When Fujifilm launched this camera body last February, they debuted three GF series, G Mount lenses ranging from 32mm-100mm.
As promised, Fujifilm today announced two more GF lenses that are so incredibly sharp, they'll be able to handle over 100MP image sensors as Fujifilm builds its GFX lineup. Incredible.
FUJINON GF 110mm F2 R LM WR
The GF 110mm F2 is a medium telelphoto lens designed with portraits in mind. Thanks to a 9-blade aperture and an F2.0 max aperture, this lens will be all about the smooth and buttery bokeh. The lens is constructed from 14 elements in 9 groups, including 4 ED lens elements (one Super ED lens and three ED lenses) that will reduce chromatic aberrations and keep your images sharp from edge-to-edge. The 110mm f2.0 is also dust & weather-weather-resistant, and freeze-proof down to 14°F / -10°C. Lastly, AF performance and noise levels have been improved thanks to the lens' linear motor.
FUJINON GF 23mm F4 R LM WR
The GF 23mm F4 also boasts dust and weather resistance, cold weather operating capabilities down to 14°F / -10°C, and fast, noise-free AF performance, but this 18mm equivalent lens is better suited for landscape and architectural photographers. The F4.0 maximum aperture lens is constructed from 12 groups and 15 elements construction using two aspherical lenses, one super ED lens, and three ED lenses. It too features Nano GI coating to reduce ghosting and flare as well as a 9-blade aperture for mo'better buttery bokeh, baby!

The GF 110mm F2 R LM WR will be available in Late June (2017) with a $2,799.95 MSRP, while the GF 23mm F4 R LM WR will be available in Late June (2017) with a $2,599.95 MSRP.
