Fujifilm Introduces the Fujinon GF45-100MMF4 R LM OIS WR LENS

VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Fujifilm North America Corp. is pleased to announce the launch of the standard zoom "Fujinon Lens GF45-100F4 R LM OIS WR" (hereinafter "GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR") in late February.

This new lens joins the current family of interchangeable GF Lenses, designed for the GFX large format Camera System and covers some of the most frequently used focal lengths by photographers. The GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR lens has an equivalent focal length range of 36mm and 79mm on a smaller 35mm format system, a maximum aperture of f4 and is a natural fit with two other GF Zoom Lenses -- the GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR and the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR. Together, these three lenses provide photographers with a broad range of focal lengths, accommodating a wide range of shooting styles and enabling them to become incredibly versatile and creative.

Combining rugged construction with high-performance optics, GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR is an incredibly versatile lens that is perfect for capturing nature, landscapes or portraits. Featuring powerful 5-axis image stabilization, one super ED lens element and a near-silent, high-speed autofocus motor, this is the perfect tool for creating images in challenging and unpredictable situations. Its dust- and weather-resistant construction allows the lens to operate in temperatures down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit/-10 degrees Celsius and its high-resolution performance and wonderfully smooth bokeh will capture the atmosphere of any scene or subject.

Product Features

Astonishing image-resolving power and wide tonal reproduction

The GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR lens consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical elements, one Super ED element and one ED element to effectively control spherical aberration, field curvature and chromatic aberration. This minimizes the negative effects of various forms of aberration, such as luminance shift and color bleeding, to deliver astonishing image sharpness.

Compact and lightweight large format standard zoom

Weighing 2.2lb (1,005g), measuring 5.69in (144.5mm) long and having a diameter of 3.66in (93mm), the lens is extremely portable and compact despite being a 2.2x zoom for a large format camera system.

Fast, quiet and highly-accurate AF

The use of an Internal Focusing system has minimized the size and weight of the focusing group, which is driven by a linear motor to achieve fast, quiet and highly accurate AF.

Powerful image stabilization

The lens is equipped with five stop image stabilization (CIPA guidelines), allowing photographers to make the most of the high-resolution sensors found in GFX System cameras, especially when making images hand-held.

Highly robust design that withstands various shooting conditions

The lens has 11 seals for dust and weather resistance to allow for peace of mind in tough environments, allowing for operation at temperatures down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit/ -10 degrees Celsius.

The GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR lens will be available in late February, at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $2,299.95 and $2,999.99 CAD. For more information, visit
