Fujifilm GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR Lens Review (DPReview): “an Easy Lens to Love”


Neil H. Buckland has just posted a full review of the newly announced Fujifilm GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR lens (AmazonB&HAdorama) at the DPReview. He tested this new lens on Fujifilm GFX 50R and found it is “an Easy Lens to Love” .  Fujifilm GF 50mm F3.5 R LM WR lens is now $500 Off at AmazonB&HAdorama. This huge deal will expire on March 29, 2020.

Below are some remarks:

  • it’s sharp. Very, very sharp.
  • I was rather impressed to see essentially perfect sharpness all the way out to the extreme corners and I didn’t notice any practical difference in quality throughout the aperture range
  • no chromatic aberrations
  • On my GFX 50R, focusing from close to far with the 50mm seems faster than all my other GF prime lenses except the 23mm
  • It locks on almost instantly with hardly any ‘wobble’ and a barely audible ‘zip’ sound
  • Fujifilm made the autofocus of this 50mm medium format lens feel a lot more like one of the better X-mount APS-C lenses than any other medium format lens I’ve used. It’s certainly faster than manual focus on Hasselblad V system lenses, faster than Pentax 645 AF lenses, and faster than Mamiya / Phase One AF lenses I’ve used in the past
  • Close focus could be closer. […] It would be easy to suggest simply cropping into the much higher resolution GFX image
  • I’m actually very impressed by this lens’s flare resistance
  • Overall, the Fujifilm GF 50mm F3.5 lens is easy to love
  • It transforms the GFX 50R into a camera that is actually very easy to carry around and shoot with casually, which is definitely NOT something you can say of most medium format gear
  • I’ve shot with some of the best, most expensive gear in the world… and this 50mm is among the sharpest lenses I’ve ever used
