Fujifilm has announced a new wide-angle prime lens for its large-format GFX mirrorless camera range including the GFX100 and GFX 50S. The 30mm f/3.5 R WR will be available from Late July 2020 with an RRP of £1649.

The GF30mm f/3.5 R WR is a wide-angle prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 24mm (in the 35mm film format) and joins the family of interchangeable GF lenses, designed for the GFX Large Format camera system, which uses a sensor that is 70% larger than a 35mm full-frame sensor.

The GF30mm f/3.5 R WR is compact, lightweight and has a weather-proof design, resistant to dust and moisture. This wide-angle prime lens joins Fujifilm’s GF lens lineup that caters to a variety of shooting styles. The use of the internal focus system enables fast and silent autofocusing and minimizes focus breathing down to just 0.05%, making it a great lens for videography.
