Setting a new standard in GF interchangeable lenses for the GFX Series of mirrorless digital cameras
A large-aperture prime lens that brings out the appeal of the large-format sensor
TOKYO, September 12, 2023 — FUJIFILM Corporation (President & CEO, Representative Director: Teiichi Goto) is pleased to announce the release of the “FUJINON Lens GF55mmF1.7 R WR” (GF55mmF1.7 R WR) on September 28, 2023. The new lens joins the lineup of GF lenses, i.e. interchangeable lenses for the GFX Series of Fujifilm’s mirrorless digital cameras equipped with the large-format sensor* measuring 1.7 times that of the 35mm full-frame sensor.
The GF55mmF1.7 R WR is a large-diameter prime lens with the standard focal length of 55mm (equivalent to 44mm in the 35mm film format). The large-format’s enriched descriptive capability is combined with the creamy bokeh characteristic of the large maximum aperture makes the main subject stand out against a blurred background. The lens’s focal length is the same as the diagonal measurement of GFX Series’ signature large-format sensor and gives the field of view close to that of human vision to create a natural perspective. It sets a new standard in GF lenses, which brings out the best of large-format cameras.
