The Phoblographer’s Guide to Buying Fujifilm GF Lenses

Fujifilm’s Medium Format GFX system is going from strength to strength, and so are the GF lenses. 

If you’re fortunate enough to own any of the Medium Format cameras Fujifilm has released, you’ll know that you have also been blessed with genuinely fantastic lenses. Fujifilm GF lenses are some of the best we have used. All of the lenses offer excellent sharpness and excellent color rendition. They exhibit outstanding build quality too. If you’re not sure which of the Fujifilm GF lenses to buy, this guide is for you. Here you’ll find all of our real-world reviews on Fujifilm GF lenses.

Since the introduction of the GFX 50S, the GFX 50R, and the GFX 100, Fujifilm has pushed out a fair amount of lenses for the platform, and all of them are spectacular. We expect plenty more Fujifilm GF Lenses in the future too. As soon as we get our hands on the lenses and we put them through their paces, we will complete our reviews. They will then be added to this guide. Check out all of the Fujifilm GF lenses we have reviewed so far.

The Phoblographer’s various product round-up features are done in-house. Our philosophy is simple: you wouldn’t get a Wagyu beef steak review from a lifelong vegetarian. And you wouldn’t get photography advice from someone who doesn’t touch the product. We only recommend gear that we’ve fully reviewed. If you’re wondering why your favorite product didn’t make the cut, there’s a chance it’s on another list. If we haven’t reviewed it, we won’t recommend it. This method keeps our lists packed with industry-leading knowledge. Some of our stories include affiliate links. If you buy something through one of these links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Fujifilm GF 23mm F4 R WR

In our review, we said:

“While I’m not usually one to care too much about the bokeh for a wide-angle lens, you’re surely going to get it here. The lens can focus pretty close and the bokeh that is possible is nice. It isn’t creamy but instead hazy. It makes for an effective storytelling tool for sure. Documentary photographers will value this feature when they want to work closer to their subjects.”

Fujifilm GF 30mm f3.5 R WR

In our review, we state:

“This is a pretty simple lens to use overall. Mount it onto the camera, point, focus, and shoot. It’s that simple. There is no manual focus ring to bring back. The only thing that could throw people off is the aperture ring. I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it. You buy Fujifilm cameras and lenses for ergonomics. If you’re not using those features, then you might as well go to another camera system.”

Fujifilm GF 45mm F2.8 R WR

In our review, we said:

“In studio settings and situations where you can slow down and take your time, the Fujifilm GF 45mm f2.8 R WR is a fantastic lens. In fact, I’m partial to saying it is one of my favorites. It’s as sharp as something like a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Milvus, but it doesn’t have Zeiss’ color rendition. Instead, it’s all it’s own. It can create gorgeous bokeh for sure and in the hands of the right photographer it can be very capable.”

Fujifilm GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR

Fujifilm FUJINON GF50mm

In our review, we said:

The Fujifilm GF 50mm f3.5 R LM WR is one of those lenses that you can slap on your camera and just leave it there. You’ll get amazing results with it, and it will not hamper you in any way thanks to its small size and overall performance.

Fujifilm 63mm F2.8 R WR

In our review, we said:

“Fujifilm for years has made fantastic lenses, and the Fujifilm 63mm f2.8 R WR lens is really no exception. It’s sharp, in fact, it’s probably too sharp for portraits. I really recommend it for landscape photographers. The lens also has nice bokeh, a great build quality, focuses quickly, and can have terrific colors. For the very digital photographer, this is a dream.”

Mitakon 65mm f1.4

In our review, we state:

“The Mitakon 65mm f1.4 lens isn’t a new design. However, it is one of the first affordable lenses for the Fujifilm GFX lineup. By stripping the elements and getting back to basics, the manual focus lens packs a lot of character for the price. Further, it’s also one of the fastest aperture lenses for the GFX camera system.”

Fujifilm GF 80mm f1.7 R WR

In our review, we state:

“Fast glass is good for two things: low light photography and the bokeh! Let’s be real here; everyone wants to see the bokeh this lens can produce. Well, I can tell you that it’s pretty phenomenal. An f1.3 equivalent lens paired up with a Medium Format sensor! Shut the front door! Of course, the bokeh is going to be gorgeous.”

Fujifilm GF 110mm F2 R WR

Fujifilm GF Lenses 110

In our review, we said:

“Jeez, this lens is stupidly sharp. The Fujifilm GF 110mm F2 R WR lens somehow or another delivers such sharp images but with just enough softness on the skin to not make you want to pull your hair out when it comes to retouching.”

Fujifilm 120mm F4 R LM OIS WR Macro

Fujifilm GF Lenses 120

In our review, we said:

“When it comes to performance, it’s very sharp, focuses quickly, has image stabilization built-in, and beautiful bokeh. What more could a photographer want?”

Fujifilm GF 32-64mm F4 R LM WR

Fujifilm GF Lenses 32-64

In our review, we said:

“It sports sharp output, nice bokeh, versatile colors, weather sealing, and is more or less a lens you’ll always want to keep on your camera. During our time with it, we really fell in love with the Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f4 R LM WR lens.”

Fujifilm GF 45-100mm f4 R LM OIS WR

In our review, we said:

“Simply mount the GF 45-100mm onto your Fujifilm Medium Format camera, turn it on, adjust your exposure settings, and you’re off to the races. The large Zoom Ring is covered in rubber ridges, making focal range adjustments a breeze. As we’d previously mentioned, the Focusing Ring could provide a bit more resistance when manually focusing. The On/Off switch also allows you to quickly enable or disable the GF 45-100mm’s Optical Image Stabilization, handy when shooting long exposures on a tripod. All in all, shooting with the Fujifilm GF 45-100mm f4 is a pretty standard affair.”

Fujifilm GF 100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR

Fujifilm GF Lenses 100-200

In our review, we said:

“Images captured with this lens are so outrageously good, you’ll want to use it all the time. The colors are excellent, the bokeh that can be produced is great, it’s weather-sealed, and at 2.3lbs it’s not unmanageable at all.”
