DPR: Fujinon GF30mm f/3.5 R WR Review


DPR posted their Fujinon GF30mm f/3.5 R WR field review and the lens does not disapoint. You can see some of the conclusion below or you can read the full review here.

Its modest size and weather-sealing make the GF 30mm F3.5 a good walk-around lens for travel photography (also helped by its relatively close minimum focus distance), but it’s of course a good option for landscape and architectural work as well. The lens is sharp wide open, and sharpens up even more as you stop down to F5.6. Vignetting is minimal (and also gone by F5.6), and distortion just isn’t much of a concern. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled.

Conclusion

What we like What we don’t
  • 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
  • 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’
