Fujinon GF55mmF1.7 ePz Review: “A Superb Lens and Absolute Pleasure to Use”

ePhotoZine has published its technical review of the Fujinon GF55mmF1.7.

What a great lens to handle, and what fantastic results! Fujifilm have given us here a superb standard lens that will hold its head high amongst the very best. Handling is great as well, perhaps not something that we would pop into a pocket for a casual stroll, but definitely something that would be worth carrying to fulfill the quality requirements for landscapes with incredible detail or flawless architectural shots, even with the night lights of the city glaring at us from every angle.

So, be it weddings, advertising, landscape, architecture, heritage, portraits of any other subject that a standard lens could cover, the Fujifilm Fujinon 55mm f/1.7 R WR will deliver the goods and is an absolute pleasure to use. An Editor’s Choice award is duly given.


  • Superb sharpness and detail
  • Low CA
  • Virtually no distortion (rectilinear)
  • Constant f/1.7 open aperture value
  • Weather resistant
  • Excellent handling
  • Gorgeous bokeh
  • Modest vignetting


  • Focusing could be closer
  • Bulky
  • Fair but high cost

Fujifilm X Summit Talk with Jonas Rask, XF 33mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF1.4, Fuji Guys GFX50SII Unboxing and More

It seems like an eternity, but it was just a bit more than two weeks ago, that Fujifilm launched plenty of new gear (that they will ship sometimes in 2023 ;) ).

So let’s use this weekend to catch up with some coverage that has been shared since them. You can find it all down below.

But before that, in case you just came back from holiday and wonder what the heck you might have missed, here is a recap of previous Fujifilm X summit coverage articles:

FujiCast with Fujifilm Manager: X-H2 Talk, Monochrome GFX, Amazing 2022 for Fuji, Kaizen Talk, “Tonygate” and More

Fujicast is back with new episode #197 and #198. Also again on the podcast, Fujifilm UK manager Andreas Georghiades.

Not so surprising, as Japanese Fujifilm managers confirmed it already a few times: there will be a Fujifilm X-H2 one day. It’s probably Fuji’s way to facepalm publicy when they read the fake rumor the X-H line had been canceled ;).

They also talk about the Tony Northrup video, where Tony does not look overly optimistic to Fujifilm’s future.

Down below you can find the podcast as well as a summary.
