FUJINON GF55mm F1.7 R WR Lens Announced


The new FUJINON GF55mm F1.7 R WR Lens is Designed to Inspire GFX System Content Creators of All Types.

FUJINON GF55mm F1.7 R WR lens is a large-aperture prime lens offering a standard focal length of 55mm (an equivalent 35mm focal length of 44mm). Designed for a broad range of genres that include travel, street, and documentary, GF55mm F1.7 brings consistent optical quality to image makers, enabling them to deliver a wide range of photos and videos.

GF55mm F1.7 features a high-speed F1.7 aperture, making it a great compliment to Fujifilm’s recently released GF80mm F1.7 R WR lens because of its similar aperture and comparatively wider focal length, with a field of view that is very similar to that of the human eye. This makes it ideal for a wide variety of applications, from intricate images with impeccable detail to environmental portraits with a wonderful balance between a subject and its out-of-focus background.

Incorporating 14 lens elements in 10 groups, including aspherical and extra-low dispersion (ED) elements, GF55mmF1.7 achieves remarkable, image-resolving performance. The provided 11 diaphragm blades create rounded bokeh, even when the lens is stopped down. The advanced lens blade design effectively controls chromatic and spherical aberrations, providing soft, creamy bokeh and detailed imagery.

•    55mm normal focal length provides versatility across various genres.
