Fujinon GF 80mm F1.7 WR Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

February 17th, 2021

All of my time spent with Fuji products to this point has been on the APS-C end of the spectrum, but I’ve had a lot of requests to dip my toes into the more extreme end of their business, which is their GFX lineup of medium format products.  Fuji has been unique in their marketing strategy, as they have focused on the smaller APS-C sensor along with the larger MF sensor to the exclusion of the far more popular full frame sensor.  I’ve been spending some time with their extremely high resolution Fujfilm GFX 100 camera body and its incredible 102 megapixels of resolution along with two lenses, the slightly older GF 45mm F2.8 WR and the brand new GF 80mm F1.7 WR short telephoto lens.  Today’s focus is on the latter, a short telephoto that allows one to shoot environmental portraits but with nicely shallow depth of field.

Nothing about the medium format platform is small or convenient in the traditional sense.  The camera body is huge (Fuji does have smaller MF bodies), and the lens are large and bulky.  That’s definitely true here, with an 800g lens that is nearly as wide as it is long.

The autofocus isn’t incredibly fast or smooth, but it is hard to argue with the incredible results optically.  

We’ll explore everything more thoroughly in my review, but our focus here is to share images from the lens as I work through my review process.  Enjoy!
