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.
