Best G-Mount Lenses for Fujifilm GFX Cameras

Fujifilm dares to be different. After they had introduced the X-mount for mirrorless APS-C cameras in 2012, they didn’t go for full frame, but introduced the Fujifilm GFX 50S in 2016 as their first mirrorless medium format camera, based on the new Fujifilm G-mount. The rangefinder style Fujifilm GFX 50R followed in 2018, and the flagship Fujifilm GFX 100 with a 102 MP sensor in 2019. The more compact Fujifilm GFX 100S and the second generation GFX 50S II were introduced in 2021. 

This page provides an overview of the growing catalog of G-mount medium format lenses. These are mostly autofocus lenses, but selected manual focus lenses may also be included.

For every lens, the following major characteristics are given:

  • Focal length.
  • Maximum aperture. It has a strong influence on the lighting conditions under which the lens can be used, and how shallow the depth of field can be. Fast lenses also tend to be much more expensive. Green labels indicate fast lenses (> f/2), red labels indicate slow lenses (< f/4).
  • Filter size. It serves as a representative of the length, diameter and weight of the lens. Green labels indicate compact lenses (filter size < 60 mm), red labels indicate big lenses (> 70 mm).
  • Minimum focus distance (MFD). It has a major influence on the magnification that can be achieved, as well as the depth of field.
  • Another important point is of course the price, but it is different in every market and currency. Instead, links to independent reviews are given which will help you to find the best lens for your needs.

Additional designations such as OIS that are not necessary to identify a lens are omitted. Manual focus lenses are marked by an asterisk (*), manual focus lenses with no digital coupling to the camera are marked by a double asterisk (**).
