DPReview has published their Fujifilm GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR Lens review and test results. The prime lens for mirrorless medium format cameras achieves an amazing 84% overall score and Silver Award.
This Fujifilm GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR Lens, the 12th GF lens in its lineup, has the maximum aperture of F3.5 and the focal length of 30mm (equivalent to 24mm in the 35mm film format).
Conclusion from DPReview:
The Fujifilm GF 30mm F3.5 is a solid wide-angle prime for users of the company’s GFX camera bodies. It’s sharp wide-open and only gets sharper as you stop down a bit, it’s built really well and it makes for a nice walk-around lens for all types of photography. Bokeh and sunstars aren’t always the strongest, and ghosting artifacts with the sun in the frame can be a bit much. But we think its qualities outshine its shortcomings, and can comfortably recommend it for GFX shooters.
What we like
- Quite sharp wide-open, and gets even sharper by F5.6
- Excellent build quality, still lightweight
- Compact size makes for a good ‘walk-around’ option
- Basically no chromatic aberrations
- Limited vignetting and distortion
What we don’t
- Less contrast at close focus distance
- Out-of-focus highlights can be distracting, more-so edges of frame
- Visible ghosting artifacts with bright light sources in the frame
- Focus could be faster and silent
- Sunstars are just ‘decent’
