Combining rugged construction and high performance optics – FUJIFILM announce FUJINON GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the standard zoom “FUJINON Lens GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR” (hereinafter “GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR”) in late February 2020. 

This new lens joins the current family of interchangeable GF Lenses, designed for the GFX Large Format Camera System and covers some of the most frequently used focal lengths by photographers. 

The GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR lens has an equivalent focal length range of 36mm and 79mm on a smaller 35mm format system, a maximum aperture of F4 and is a natural fit with two other GF Zoom Lenses, GF 32-64mm F4 R LM WR and GF 100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR. 

Together, these three lenses provide photographers with a broad range of focal lengths, accommodating a wide range of shooting styles, enabling them to be more versatile and creative. 

Combining rugged construction with high-performance optics, GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR is an incredibly versatile lens that is perfect for capturing nature, landscapes, or portraits. 

Featuring powerful 5-axis image stabilisation, one super ED lens elements, and a near-silent, high speed autofocus motor, this is the perfect tool for creating images in challenging and unpredictable situations because its dust- and weather-resistant construction allows the lens to operate in temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius / 14 degrees Fahrenheit and its high-resolution performance and wonderfully smooth bokeh will capture the atmosphere of any scene or subject.

Main product features

Astonishing image resolving power and wide tonal reproduction

GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical elements, one Super ED element and one ED element to effectively control spherical aberration, field curvature and chromatic aberration. This minimizes the negative effects of various forms of aberration, such as luminance shift and color bleeding, to deliver astonishing image sharpness.

Compact and lightweight Large Format standard zoom

Weighing 2.2lb (1,005g), measuring 5.69in (144.5mm) long, and having a diameter of 3.66in (93mm), the lens is extremely portable and compact despite being a 2.2x zoom for a Large Format camera system.

Fast, quiet and highly-accurate AF

The use of an Internal Focusing system has reduced the size and weight of the focusing group, which is driven by a linear motor to achieve fast, quiet and highly accurate AF. 

Powerful image stabilisation

The lens is equipped with five stop image stabilization (CIPA guidelines), allowing photographers to make the most of the high-resolution sensors found in GFX System Cameras, especially when making images hand-held.

Highly robust design that withstands various shooting conditions

The lens has 11 seals for dust and weather resistance to allow for peace of mind in tough environments, allowing for operation at temperatures down to -10 degreesC / 14 degrees F.Intuitive touch-screen

Price and Availability

The FUJINON Lens GF 45-100mm F4 R LM OIS WR will be priced at £2049 and available from 27th February 2020.
