FUJIFILM announce lightweight and compact FUJINON GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR 

10th addition to the GFX Large Format System lens range

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release the FUJINON GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR in mid September 2019, expanding the lineup of GF interchangeable lenses for the GFX System. 

The GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR is the smallest and the lightest (335g) GF lens with a maximum aperture of 3.5 and focal length of 50mm (equivalent to 40mm in the 35mm film format). When attached to the GFX 50R, the combination weighs just 1,110g, making it the lightest GFX kit yet, and the perfect choice for street and travel photography. The release of the GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR, expands the lineup of GF lenses to ten. 

GF Lenses are Fujifilm’s highest quality lenses that deliver astonishing image resolving performance and rich tonal reproduction. This is made possible thanks to the outstanding optical design and production technologies that polish lens surfaces with sub-micron level precision. The expertise has come from years of developing industry leading FUJINON lenses, including broadcast lenses that have recently been awarded the Engineering Emmy ® Award* by the U.S. Television Academy. GF lenses can utilise the full potential of the FUJIFILM GFX 100, GFX 50S and GFX 50R mirrorless digital cameras. Coupled with Fujifilm’s unique colour reproduction technology, these lenses deliver some of the highest image quality in the world.

The GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR follows in the footsteps of previous GF lenses by offering amazing image performance and rich tonal reproduction to help capture the atmosphere of any scene. The lens has additional seals making it dust and weather resistant and capable of operating in temperatures down to -10°C.  This allows photographers the ability to shoot in extreme conditions and still ensure high levels of reliability - a must for any professional photography equipment.
