DPRTV: Fujinon GF45-100mm f/4 LM OIS WR Review

DPRTV reviewed. the Fujinon GF45-100mm f/4 LM OIS WR on the Fujifilm GFX100. Below is a summary of the video above:

  • The GF45-100mm is about a 35-80mm
  • Could use a wider zoom
  • Fujifilm’s other zoom the GF32-64mm which about a 26-50mm
  • If you own them both there is a lot of overlap
  • Fujifilm needs to release a 20-35mm zoom to go with the GF45-100mm
  • Can handhold at 1/30th a second at 100mm
  • All the rings feel great and everything is weather sealed
  • 82mm filter thread
  • Well built high-quality lens
  • 1005g or 2.2lbs so not much heavier than a 20-70mm full-frame
  • Very well controlled chromatic aberration
  • LoCA very clean and well-controlled
  • Very little ghosting from flare
  • Sun stars are ok
  • Bokeh can get a little onion ringy, but not much cats eye in the corner
  • Great lens for a camera like the GFX50R since there is no IBIS on that camera
  • Very quick AF with its linear motor
  • A very sharp lens that delivers on the GFX100
  • Center very sharp and the corners even wide open
  • Minimal focusing distance isn’t amazingly close
  • Very consistent and high sharpness
  • For video there is linear and nonlinear focus ring options
  • There is a lot of focus breathing at the wide and telephoto end so it isn’t ideal for video
  • It would be hard to use just this lens all-day
  • You can use it for portraiture
  • If you want really shallow depth of field you will want the GF110mm f/2
  • Equal to about an f/3.2 in full-frame terms
  • For architecture, you might want something wider
  • The OIS is fantastic for the non-IBIS bodies
