TTartisan has announced its 11mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens is now available for Fujifilm GFX camera systems. Previously available for multiple other mounts, it appears to be the first lens for the GFX that does not need a separate adapter that the company has produced.
The design of the lens looks as though the company mainly just integrated the mount adapter into the base of the original optic, but photographers who use Fujifilm’s GFX system are unlikely to complain as long as it provides access to the unique perspective without the need for additional parts. The fully manual lens is constructed of 11 elements in seven groups and uses a seven-blade aperture diaphragm. It has a minimum focusing distance of 17cm and has an aperture range of f/2.8 through f/16. The only change with the GFX mount variant, aside from slightly different dimensions and weight to account for the larger lens mount, is the absence of the lens hood, as it would interfere with the image circle produced by the lens.
TTArtisan says that the fisheye design renders an immensely wide angle of view that produces a visual appeal that is characterized by dramatic distortion and a creative depiction of space. The lens is also touted as being ideal for low light photography — such as astrophotography — thanks to its wide f/2.8 aperture (the lens closes down to a maximum of f/16).
