DPRTV Reviews Fujinon GF45-100mm F4 on Fujifilm GFX100

DPReview TV has published their Fujifilm GF 45-100mm F4 OIS review. Here is what they think about it:

  • basic general purpose everyday professional lens
  • it’s rugged and has OIS
  • it’s like a 35-80mm on full frame
  • Chris would like something wider
  • for landscape he prefers the GF32-64mm
  • the 35-80mm full frame rage however gets into portraiture territory, too
  • but overall there is a lot of crossover between the GF32-64mm and the GF45-100
  • what Fujifilm needs to release is something that goes from 20 to 35mm in full frame terms
    [NOTE: FujiRumors leaked an old internal GF lens roadmap, and it showed a GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5, which would be a 16-30 in full frame]
  • at 100mm he can handhold shots at about 1/30 of a second and still get very good and usable resolution. That’s very impressive
  • build quality feels excellent. Well build high quality lens. The weight is acceptable
  • excellent in containing chromatic aberration. No real chromatic aberration even in high contrast scenes
  • great job in controlling flair issue
  • optically a fantastic lens
  • sunstars are OK, but not great. But that’s classic for zooms
  • bokeh exhibits a little bit of onion rings, maybe a bit harder on the edges of the bokeh balls. Not as much cats eye in the corners wide open as he would have thought he’d get, and completely goes away if stopped down a bit
  • he shot handheld with the Fujifilm GFX100 IBIS, and he got very usable resutls at 1/15 of a second. So Chris is impressed
  • this lens would be awesome also for the Fujifilm GFX50R. It has OIS, and makes it a great walk around lens
  • has linear motor and focus incredibly fast paired with Fujifilm GFX100
  • easily delivers the sharpness you need even on 100 megapixel body
  • very consistent and high sharpness
  • in video, there is a fair amount of focus breathing. But besides breathing, it’s a nice lens for video
  • Chris says it’s still not the most versatile lens for him. He can’t rely just on this lens. He feels he has to take with him some other lens too, like the excellent 23mm prime lens or the 32-64 zoom
  • if you go with larger format zooms, this is a compromise you need to do. You can’t get same focal range easily like you get on a smaller sensor
  • depth of field equivalent of a f/3.2 on full frame. Gives you a lot of nice soft background
  • fantastic general purpose zoom

Fujifilm GFX Secret Roadmap: What We Got, What Changed and What is Still Missing

I just gave a quick look at the internal Fujifilm GFX roadmap FujiRumors leaked back in April 2017.

At that time, the internal Fujifilm roadmap considered the following lenses:

  • GF 250mm F4
  • GF 35mm F2.8
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5
  • GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6

The roadmap, that you can see here, mentioned there will be “GF 20-36 or GF 100-200“.

Now let’s see what we got so far, what changed, and what’s missing:

What we got:

What we got, but changed a bit:

  • GF 100-200mm 5.6 (originally planed as f/4.5-5.6)
  • GF 30mm F3.5 (originally planed as 35 f/2.8)

What’s still missing:

  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5

In June 2017, our sources then informed us, that the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.4 has been added to the internal GF lens roadmap.

But also in this case, it took Fujifilm longer than expected to release it, mainly because of prolonged internal discussions, that ended up changing the lens from GF80mm f/1.4 to the one we find in the newest GF lens roadmap: the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7.

So what can we expect next?

Well, the current roadmap officially shows:

  • 2020 – Fujinon GF30mmF3.5 R WR
  • 2021 – Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 R WR

It’s strange Fujifilm didn’t add any tilt shift lens to the roadmap, because, if you remember the official Fujifilm G mount lens request survey, Fujifilm gave us only tilt shift lenses to vote on.

But as there will be surely at least one more G mount lens coming in 2021 (along with the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7), maybe we could see one of these two options coming:

Let’s hope we will get both these lenses in 2021, in addition to the Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 R WR.

New Fujinon G Mount Roadmap

Fujifilm announced a new Fujinon G Mount roadmap with the following lenses

(1) Large-diameter standard lens “FUJINON Lens GF80mmF1.7 R WR”

  • The lens with the focal length of 80mm (equivalent to 63mm in the 35mm film format) and the maximum aperture of F1.7 is the brightest*** interchangeable lens for mirrorless digital cameras equipped with a large format sensor. It enables portraiture shooting with beautiful and creamy bokeh even in low light conditions.
  • It boasts astonishing image quality comparable to the professionally-acclaimed large diameter mid-telephoto lens “FUJINON Lens GF110mmF2 R LM WR,” but offers an even wide angle of view with a compact and lightweight body.

(2) Wide-angle prime lens “FUJINON Lens GF30mmF3.5 R WR”

  • The lens with the focal length of 30mm (equivalent to 24mm in the 35mm film format) is perfect for landscape photography. Offering ultra-high resolution capability despite its compact and lightweight body, the lens can bring out the full potential of the 102MP image sensor used in the GFX100.

Fujifilm X Summit February 4

Fujifilm just announced the Fujifilm X Summit at the House of Photography in London for February 4th. Expect new product announcements, as it was for the first Fujifilm X summit and the second Fujifilm X Summit. You can read the announcement of the 3rd Fujifilm X Summit at this Fujifilm page.
