Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 Review: Superb Quality, Fujifilm Shows Their Skill to Produce First Class Medium Format Lenses


The Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 lens is now in stock at BHphoto, AmazonUS and Adorama.

So high time for a first review roundup, which also includes the test made by ephotozine, who ends up highly recommending it for it’s “superb and more affordable medium format for the highest quality“:

There is little doubt as to the quality of this lens, giving us masses of resolution, outstanding sharpness, beautiful bokeh, and a virtual lack of any of the usual aberrations such as CA and distortion. There is a small amount of flare in the worst scenarios, but we have to work at it to find it. Fujifilm certainly show that they still have all the skills for producing first class medium format lenses, and it is remarkable that they can do this in a zoom lens as well. Quality, versatility and a price that is very realistic. What’s not to like?


  • Outstanding sharpness
  • Ultra-low CA
  • Ultra-low distortion
  • Low vignetting
  • Beautiful bokeh
  • Excellent handling
  • Fast and accurate AF
  • Superb medium format quality


  • Slight flare in extreme situations
  • Costs reasonable but high end
