Best G-Mount Lenses for Fujifilm GFX Cameras

Fujifilm dares to be different. After they had introduced their mirrorless APS-C system In 2012, they didn’t go for full frame, but introduced the Fujifilm GFX 50S as their first mirrorless medium format camera, based on the new Fujifilm G-mount. The so far latest camera, the Fujifilm GFX 100S, was introduced in 2021 and features a 100 MP sensor. 

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 light conditions in 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 interesting point is of course the price, but it is different in every market and currency. Instead, links to independent reviews are given.

Additional designations such as OIS which are not necessary to identify a lens are omitted.

*Manual focus lens with digital coupling between lens and camera.
