Fujifilm takes a wraps off a new 250mm lens for a GFX system

Fujifilm has stretched a medium-format GFX lens operation with a proclamation of a GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR.

When mounted on a Fujifilm GFX 50S, this telephoto primary lens has a 35mm focal length homogeneous to around 200mm, that when partnered with a new 1.4x teleconverter that’s also been announced delivers a 35mm focal length homogeneous of 277mm. 

The lens is done adult of 16 elements in 10 groups, that sees a lens concentration down to 1.4m and yield a limit 0.22x magnification ratio. Fujifilm promises it will broach unrivalled tone facsimile and ‘three-dimensional’ picture quality, as good as ultra-high fortitude and abounding bokeh.

As you’d design from a pro-spec optic, a new GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR has a lens tub assembled from magnesium alloy, while a lens is hermetic in 18 locations for dirt and continue resistance.

To revoke a risk of camera shake when sharpened during extended focal lengths a new GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR sports a 5-stop picture stabilization system, while there’s a linear engine to expostulate a autofocus system. 

The lens will be accessible during a finish of April, labelled during £2,899 / $3,299.95, while a 1.4x teleconverter (GF1.4X TC WR) will set we behind £749 / $849.95. Australian pricing is still to be confirmed.
