It offers video format modes optimized for different lenses, along with improved connectivity options, including Ethernet and HDMI ports. With hardware enhancements such as up to 8-stop in-body image stabilization, a 1.0x viewfinder magnification, and a redesigned body, the GFX100 II is designed to meet the high standards of professional photographers and videographers.

    GF55mmF1.7 R WR

    The GF55mmF1.7 R WR is a versatile large-aperture prime lens with a 55mm focal length (equivalent to 44mm in the 35mm format) designed for Fujifilm’s GFX Series large-format cameras. This lens offers the benefits of a wide maximum aperture, allowing for creamy bokeh and a natural field of view similar to human vision. It excels in capturing subjects against a beautifully blurred background, making it suitable for a variety of photography styles, from information-rich snapshots to sharp portraitures. The lens’s construction includes advanced elements to minimize aberrations, resulting in high image quality. With a maximum aperture of F1.7 and compatibility with the large-format sensor, it enhances both bokeh and image-resolving capabilities, making it a versatile choice for various shooting scenarios, indoors or outdoors.

    GF Tilt Shift Lenses
