DPRTV: Fujinon XF200mm The Great White Sharp Shot on GFX100

DPRTV created a short film about the Fujinon XF 200mm F2 R LM OIS WR while attending Fujikina in Japan using a pre-production Fujifilm GFX100. This is our first look at a video created with the GFX100 for those considering creating similar work. Below are excerpts from the quick look:

  • This is a heavy lens at almost 5lbs which is similar to a 300mm f/2.8
  • Custom focusing buttons and nice controls
  • Good IBIS they can do about 1/15th
  • Arca Swiss plate cut out of the foot
  • High price point at just under $6,000
  • Awesome optical performance
  • Hard to say anything negative about optical performance
  • Even with the supplied 1.4x teleconverter, it is very sharp
  • Nice bokeh fall off
  • Can be a beautiful portrait lens
  • Very well corrected lens
  • Great for action and wildlife
  • At home on Fujifilm X-T3
  • Very fast focusing
  • Min focus distance just under 2m
  • Manual focusing for stills isn’t great because it is a very long turn
  • Great lens for video and stability, but the focus ring is unusable for video
  • Reminds them of the quality of the XF8-16mm
  • Very comparable to Canon and Nikon 300mm f/2.8, which are great lenses
