Fujifilm has just announced the new Fujinon GF 100–200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR telephoto zoom lens for GFX medium format cameras.
The new lens brings the total number of GF lenses to nine, and is meant to weather the harshest elements, while still providing ultra-high image quality to boot.
The US price of the Fujifilm GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens is $1,999.00, you can check pre-order links at B&H Photo Video/Adorama. This lens will be released in late February, 2019.
The lens includes five stops of image stabilization, and has 20 elements in 13 groups, and two Super ED lens elements, in addition to one aspherical lens element that work together to keep chromatic aberration to a minimum. The result is impressive image resolution and rich tonal reproduction throughout shooting.
It is weather-sealed to keep the gear dust- and weather-resistant, and can operate in environments with temperatures as low as -10°C, and in days with light rain and dusty settings.
