Dream GFX lens that don't exist now - for me is 35/1.4


Recommended Posts


what is you dream lens that you like have from FUJI and don't exist now?
I use SIGMA ART 35/1.4 for nikon through AF adapter, next that i use is Sigma ART 135/1.8 - now replaced by GF 80/1.7
This work, but sometime 50R say me - lens error - this is some adapter problem, often is needed clean adapter contact - this is not 100% like original lens, or manual lens.

Because GFX is crop of crop ... is not good idea use lenses like 2.8 and up ... for me is needed 1.x

If FUJI make GF 35/1.4 i buy it ... i don't care price - 2.000 euro ? no problem ... i really miss this lens

And i predict that lens been same boom that GF 80/1.7

The GFX 45mm F2.8 in FF equivalent is a 35mm F2.0 lens.  I use that lens and it's one of Fuji's BEST in my opinion and many others. Might want to check that one out.

I own the original APC 35 1.4 (bought it in 2012) for my X series of bodies-  that lens in FF is a 52.5mm lens...  And you'd have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers to take it away from me.

A 35mm 1.4 for the GFX would convert to a 27.3 mm in FF, or say 27mm to round it off.

Hope that helps.  But, I would check out the 45 2.8. It's fantastic!

I have GF 45 2.8 ... for me it is like good set-lens not good, not terrible 😉 i use 35/1.4 on GFX 50R (AF-convertor) and i don't recalculate it to kino-film ... this is physic   F=35mm on all format, only angle is diff. 

I use minolta MC 58/1.2 too, but this is manual, work for me and i can imagine the price for GFX ;-))

I can explain it easy ... becuase AF convertor don't work 100% (sometime say me bad lens ... and don't work long time) and i really like 35/1.4 ... i have 2 options ... use MF convertor ... or take Nikon D810 + 35/1.4 and goo  ... wit this setup i take wedding in Vietnam and Dubai too (+ some in Europe) ... if i have time i use 135/1.8 sometime 24/1.4 and 14/1.8 - for street photo... but for me is 35/1.4 primary lens that work on any light ... and 2.8 is 2.8 nothing else yes recalculate DOF is 2.2 for 45 ... but light ???

Now i have only one favorite lens from FUJI GF 80/1.7 - if i have space, portrait or to atelier, perfect lens - I we bought it as soon as they released it.

Next that i love on GFX body is MF and how GFX do control MF on display/viewfinder ... this is genial ... but i use 35/1.4 for fast photo too, for composed foto (models) and for street photo ... day/night and flash

The FUJI GFX catalog lacks a "serious" telephoto lens.

In fact, the choice stops at the GF250, which corresponds to a 200 on the full frame.

I hope that at least a 400 or 500mm will be built and produced soon, perhaps not too bright otherwise it would be too heavy.

For example a 400f5,6 or a 500f6,3 (naturally with the possibility of mounting the 1,4X): in this way, even the price would not be..."crazy"
