Tele­photo op­tic is the long­est GF lens yet

Digital Photograper - - News -

“The lens of­fers a fo­cal length equivalent to 198mm in 35mm terms”

Fu­ji­film has bol­stered its medium-for­mat GFX sys­tem with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new tele­photo lens and a hand­ful of ac­ces­sories.

The Fu­ji­non GF250mm f4 R LM OIS WR, whose de­vel­op­ment was con­firmed on the GF lens roadmap re­leased last year, of­fers a fo­cal length equivalent to 198mm in 35mm terms. Its fo­cal length qual­i­fies it as the long­est GF lens in the com­pany’s line-up.

Fu­ji­film has crafted the new op­tic with a dust- and mois­ture-re­sis­tant mag­ne­sium-al­loy de­sign, and has equipped it with an Op­ti­cal Im­age Sta­bil­i­sa­tion sys­tem that prom­ises five stops of com­pen­sa­tion.

The GFX sys­tem cur­rently only of­fers one cam­era, namely the GFX 50S, which was re­leased in 2017.

The com­pany has also con­firmed a new Fu­ji­non Tele­con­verter GF1.4X TC WR, which is in­tended for use with the above lens and ex­tends fo­cal length to 277mm in 35mm for­mat equivalent.

MCEX-18G WR and MCEX-45G WR Macro Ex­ten­sion Tubes have also been an­nounced along­side it.

The GF250mm f4 R LM OIS WR lens is set to re­tail for £2,900/$3,300, while the GF1.4X TC WR tele­con­verter will be made avail­able for £750/$850.

The MCEX-18G WR and MCEX-45G WR will each re­tail at £290/$330.
