Fujifilm GF 110mm F2 R LM WR Review

October 20, 2017 | Mark Goldstein | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star Half rating star


The GF 110mm F2 R LM WR is the biggest, heaviest and most expensive lens for the GFX camera system, but it's also crucially the fastest, with the maximum f/2 aperture and 9-blade aperture capable of producing some gorgeous bokeh effects, making this lens a must-have for all portrait fans.

Shooting wide-open at f/2 reveals a slight loss of sharpness in the centre and edges of the image, although that does make the lens slightly more forgiving for your subject! Stopping down to f/2.8 sharpens things up considerably, and performance is maintained right through to f/16. This lens displays virtually no chromatic aberrations and has negligible pin-cushion distortion, with vignetting at f/2 being the only real optical issue of note.

The GF 110mm F2 R LM WR is surprisingly snappy to focus, with the high-speed linear motor resulting in quick and quiet auto-focusing, while the the on-camera focusing aids and huge, well-damped focusing ring make manual focusing a pleasure rather than a chore. As with every other GF lens, the 110mm retains a traditional aperture ring.

In summary, the medium telephoto GF 110mm F2 R LM WR will be the first choice for many current and would-be GFX 50S users, and thankfully, given the high asking price, it delivers the goods. Highly recommended!
