Fujifilm’s G Mount Lens Roadmap Includes 500mm Super-Tele and Power Zoom Lenses

Fujifilm has released an updated lens roadmap for the GFX System, which includes two new lenses.

“We are excited about the value these new lens offerings will bring not only to the GFX System portfolio of lenses, but also, and especially, to creatives as they continue to strive to tell their stories. Their broad capabilities will make these lenses unique and valuable assets to creators looking to create compelling still and video content,” says Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging Division and Optical Devices Division, Fujifilm North America Corporation.

The first is a prime ultra-telephoto lens. The 500mm lens, which is comparable to 396mm on a full-frame camera, doubles the length of the previous longest lens in the GFX System, the GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR.

The GF 500mm f/5.6 lens will work with Fujifilm’s GF 1.4x teleconverter, which is presently only compatible with the GF 250mm f/4 lens in the GFX System lens family. This gives the lens a focal length of 700mm, or 554mm in 35mm equivalency terms.

The first Power Zoom G Mount lens is the second new lens on the GFX System lens roadmap. The PZ lens will be created with still and video creation in mind, and will allow precise control over aperture, focus, and zoom.
