Fujifilm to announce GF30mm F3.5 R WR


Fujifilm is allegedly preparing to announce the GF30mm F3.5 R WR to add to their GFX range of medium format cameras (GFX100, GFX 50S, GFX 50R), according to a reliable and well-known source. From the specs below it looks to a highly compact design and would fit in between the current GF23mm F4 R LM WR and GF45mm F2.8 R WR. Based on the GFX sensor size of 44 x 33mm, the new GF30mm F3.5 R WR would be the equivalent to a 24mm on full frame 35mm.

Key specs:

  • 13 elements in 10 groups (2 aspherical, 2 ED lenses)
  • 0.32m minimum focus distance (0.15x magnification)
  • 58mm filter diameter
  • 84 x 99.4 mm 
  • 510g
  • $1699 (US)

The lens has been previously mentioned by Fujifilm and is referred to in their current ‘roadmap‘.
