Fujifilm Adds First Telezoom To GFX System

-

The first telephoto zoom lens for Fujifilm digital medium format mirrorless camera system has arrived in the shape of the GF 100-200mm f5.6 R LM OIS WR. It has a 35mm-equivalent focal range of 79-158mm and can be used with the GFX system’s 1.4x teleconver­ter to give an effective focal length of 111-221mm. It brings the number of Fujinon GF mount lenses up to nine.

The new GF 100-200mm zoom’s optical constructi­on comprises 20 elements in 13 groups, including two Super ED types (extra-low dispersion) to counter chromatic aberration­s and one aspherical type to correct for distortion and field curvature. Built-in optical image stabilisat­ion gives up to five stops of correction for camera shake. The minimum focusing distance is 60 centimetre­s at 100mm and 1.6 metres at 200mm. The minimum aperture is f32 and the zoom has a nine-blade diaphragm to give smoother out-of-focus effects.

Like all the GF mount lenses, the new zoom is fully weather-protected with ten seals, and insulated to enable operation in sub-zero temperatur­es down to -10 degrees Celsius. It accepts 67 millimetre­s diameter screwthrea­d filters and weighs in at 1.05 kilograms. The barrel length is 183 millimetre­s.

The Fujinon GF 100-200mm f5.6 R LM OIS WR zoom is priced at $3199 and is available in Australia now. For more informatio­n visit www.fujifilm.com.au
