Fujifilm has added its sixth lens to the medium format GFX system, introducing the Fujinon GF45mm f/2.8 R WR, price tag £1,699.

Aimed at documentary and street photographers, the Fuji GF45mm f/2.8 R WR weighs just 490g and is one of the lightest lenses in the system.

The Fuji GF45mm f/2.8 R WR is constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups, using one aspherical lens and two ED lenses.

Fuji says the new GF lens deliver optimum image quality by reducing common noise faults, such as the fluctuations of aberrations caused by the change of shooting distance, as well as ghosting and flare.

The Fuji GF45mm f/2.8 R WR has been sealed in 10 areas and is dust and weather resistant. It can also withstand temperatures as low as 10C.

The new Fuji GF lens’s aperture ring also introduces a C position (command dial mode) on the camera body that allows the lens aperture value to be changed to suit the photographer’s preference.

And a locking mechanism has been added to the A (Auto) and C positions to prevent unintended movements of the aperture dial.
