Fujinon GF 80mmF1.7 and Fujinon GF 30mmF3.5 Size Comparisons

Fujinon G Mount Lenses – Size Comparison

The Fujifilm GFX community is salivating, looking at the latest G mount roadmap.

In fact, the new roadmap lists a stunning Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 lens, which in other sensor sizes is:

  • 63mm f/1.3 in full frame
  • 42mm f/0.9 in ASP-C, hence very close to Fuji’s new Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0

And to be clear: we apply the conversion to the f-stop, only to indicate the equivalent shallow depth of field, and not the light gathering capabilities of the lens itself, which remains the one mentioned on the lens (with the consequences we told you here).

We also find a lovely Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5 lens, which Fujifilm says is meant for street and landscape photography, be very sharp and also focus fast.

At the recent Fujifilm X Summit, Fujifilm showed some mockups and also disclosed more details.

I thought we catch up on that, sum up all we know, and add a few size comparisons based on the technical sketches Fujfiilm delivered during the event.

LEFT: GF110mm f/2 vs GF 80mm f/1.7 Size Comparison // RIGHT: GF 80mm f/1.7 mockup

Let’s start with the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7.

Above you can see a size comparison provided by Fujifilm. The Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 is 20% smaller and will weight under 800g, as opposed to the GF110mm f/2, which weights 1010g.

The picture above also shows the GF80mm f/1.7 mounted on the Fujifilm GFX100.

Fujifilm gave us some indications on what the differences between both lenses are.

The Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 will have a very creamy and softer bokeh compared to the one on the Fujinon GF 110mm f/2. Different bokeh quality for different tastes.

Also, due to its more compact nature, the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7 is good for outside and active shooting, whereas the GF110mm f/2 instead is better suited for studio.

I decided to compare the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7 to its closes in terms of focal length, the Fujinon GF110mm f/2 and the GF63mm f/2.8.

GF110 - GF80 - GF63
GF110 – GF80 – GF63

Fujinon GF30mm f/3.5

Next in our list is the Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5.

In this case, we are going to compare it with the Fujinon GF23mm f/4 vs Fujinon GF 45mm f/2.8.

Sadly camerasize does not have the GF45/2.8 in their database, so I added it manually to the Fujifilm GFX50R.

Down below you see that it is just a tiny bit shorter than the GF23mm f/4

GF23 / GF 30 / GF45
GF23 / GF 30 / GF45

Both lenses are fantastic additions to the Fujinon G mount lineup.

What we want know thought, are the other ones we saw in the internal secret roadmap… but not so secret anymore, thanks to this leak ;).

Fujinon GF Rumored Lens Roadmap Update: Tilt Shift Lens, GF20-35mm, GF 80mmF1.4 (not in 2018) & More

Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap

You might remember how here on FujiRumors we leaked Fujifilm’s interal GF lens roadmap already back in April 2017 (see screenshot above)!

But time passed, and there is more to share and to update… so let’s do it today.

GF 80mm F1.4

We broke the rumor of a crazy fast GF 80mm F1.4 (!!!) medium format lens back in June 2017.

However, keep in mind that a Fujifilm manager said here that they need 2 years to discuss, develop and finally make a camera and even more than 2 years in case of lenses.

So if in June 2017, when we shared the GF 80mmF1.4 rumor, the discussions about the GF80mmF1.4 just started, then now, 1 year later, IF Fujifilm really decided to go ahead with it, it will take them well over 1 year to come out with it.

Again… if Fujifilm decided to make it all.

But even if Fujifilm decided to make it, you should not expect any GF 80mmF1.4 lens at Photokina 2018, and I’d personally would not expect it before 2020 anyway.

Don’t worry, there will be lots of other great gear to enjoy at Photokina 2018, such as the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GF 50R.

Tilt Shift, UWA & The New Roadmap

According to our sources, we must add also a tilt shift lens for the GF system to the list of rumored lenses shared back in April 2017, so the updated and complete rumored GF lens list is the following:

  • GF 35mm F2.8 (coming 2018)
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5 (in 2018 this or the GF 100-200)
  • GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6 (in 2018 this or the GF 20-36)
  • GF 80mm F1.4 (not in 2018 – personally I’d not expect it before 2020)
  • Tilt Shift lens (coming 2018/2019)

Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 GF lenses a year, and since we already got the GF250mmF4 last month, we can expect a maximum of two more lenses in 2018.

Now, for 2018, the Fujinon GF 35mmF2.8 should be sure.

So now it’s your turn guys. Let us know which one you would prefer between the GF20-36, GF-100-200 and the tilt shift lens for 2018.

And make sure to join our Fujifilm GFX facebook group.

stay tuned,

Which Fujinon GF lens would you like in 2018?

ePHOTOzine Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 Review: Impressive Chromatic Aberration Control, Outstanding Sharpness, Superb Image Quality

When the ultra fast Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 was launched, some noticed a minimal sign of fringing when pixel peeping into images to ultra detailed pixel level. Something to worry about?

Apparently not.

According to ePHOTOzine, who just published its full technical review, the GF80mmF1.7 is able to contain chromatic aberration extremely well. They write:

CA (Chromatic Aberration) is also very impressive, centrally being close to zero as we stop down slightly. The edges are also kept well under control.

I did play around with the GF80mmF1.7 of my close friend too (he sold all his Nikon Z gear for the GFX system) and quite frankly it’s a stunning performer in terms of optical quality.

Down below you can see the Pros and Cons of the ePHOTOzine review.

Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 Technical Analysis, DOF Calculators, Comparison with GF110mmF2 and More

Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7 (vs GF110mmF2)

The Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 is currently not easy to find. A low stock is available at Adorama here and also at AmazonUS here.

And yet, slowly but surely, it is falling in the hands of photographers, who drop their (very positive) reviews on the various online sales platforms:

But also Jim Kasson is covering the Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 brilliantly in his technical tests, which we will share down below.

I did play around with the Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 too (and so did my son) when I met my friend, who sold all his Nikon Z mirrorless gear for the GFX system. So far he does not regret it at all and he is totally thrilled about his switch.

The Big Availability Check for Fujifilm GFX100S, GF80mmF1.7, X-E4, XF70-300mm, XF27mmF2.8 R WR and Accessories

In these days I get many emails asking when the latest Fujifilm gear will be in stock.

I frankly don’t know the answer. I know the GFX100S pre-orders are beyond Fujifilm’s most forbidden dreams, hence it might take long for Fujifilm to deliver, but I don’t have information about the rest of the gear.

So what I can do, is to check when different stores expect to have the latest gear available and what is eventually already in stock.

Fujifilm GFX100S

BHphoto says it expects to have it available in April. More precise indications come from Moment, who give the date “April 2”. AmazonUS says it expects to ship in 2 to 5 weeks. No other indications at other stores.

So, overall, I think we can be optimistic that in April the shipping-bottleneck might be finally solved. Unless you guys keep pre-ordering it :)

Fujinon GF80mmF1.7:

Adorama says it’s on the way, and expects to have it available in a few days. AmazonUS expects it in 2 to 4 weeks. BHphoto gives no indication, whereas Moment gives April 2 as date.

Overall, it seems that we can expect stock already by the end of the month and a more substantial stock in the first half of April.

Fujifilm X-E4:

The Fujifilm X-E4 is mostly available as long as you look for the body only version. The kit version with the XF27mmF2.8 R WR is not available and AmazonUS gives even 1 to 2 months for that combo to be in stock.

Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6:

AmazonUS expects stock on April 5. Adorama says new fresh samples are now on the way to their warehouse, hence it’s only a matter of days. Moment expects stock on March 31. No indication at BHphoto.

So by the end of March and latest early April we might find the lens more widely available.

Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR:

Just as with the GFX100S, also for the XF27mmF2.8 R WR Fujifilm has announced delivery delays. It’s not widely available yet, but you can find some samples at Adorama here. AmazonUS expects stock in 1 to 54 weeks. BHphoto does not give any time frame on when it might have it available. Moment expects stock in early April.

Accessories for X-E4 and GFX100S

MHG-GFX S hand grip for Fujifilm GFX100S

At the time of this post there a 4 samples available at AmazonUS here. It’s not yet available at BHphoto here and at Adorama here.

FUJIFILM BLC-XE4 Leather Case + MHG-XE4 Hand Grip + TR-XE4 Thumb Rest

The leather case for the Fujifilm X-E4 is currently in stock at AmazonUS here. It’s not yet available at BHphoto here and Adorama here.

As for the MHG-XE4 hand grip, AmazonUS says it expects availability in 1 or 2 days, whereas no indication on when they expect stock is given by BHphoto here and Adorama here.

The last X-E4 accessory is the TR-XE4 thumb rest. At the time of this post, there are 2 available at AmazonUS here. Not yet available at BHphoto here and Adorama here.
