DPRTV: Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5 LM WR Review

DPRTV thinks the new Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5 LM WR should be called a muffin instead of a pancake. Below are excerpts from their review using the Fujifilm GFX50R.

  • Smallest lightest lens for GFX
  • Buttery smooth focus ring that’s easy to use
  • Fast new linear motor and it’s very fast on the GFX100
  • Not a traditional pancake
  • Fairly complicated formula for a pancake
  • Very Sharp
  • Sharp corners
  • Minimal breathing
  • Easily handles the GFX100
  • Like a 40mm f/2.8
  • If you hate equivalency contact Tony Northrup on IG (LOL)
  • Good performance wide open
  • LoCA is well controlled and minor
  • Pleasing Bokeh that is nice and round, but a little hard and has darker edges
  • A little short for portraits
  • 63mm is probably a better choice for portraits, but the 110mm is the best
  • Lots of resolution to crop
  • 63mm vs 50mm – the 63mm is a stop faster and about a stop more expensive so you can save money with the 50mm
  • A little too close to a 35mm for Chris’ liking
