Small lenses wanted for GFX cameras besides 50/3.5

I have told my local dealer I want the 50/3.5 once out, but I feel there still is a large gap between the current 45mm and 23mm prime lenses. Perhaps a small 30mm would be optimal since it equates to a 24mm lens on FF cameras.  I have tended to use 24mm lenses on many different systems with success including the XT-2 where the 16/1.4 was a much appreciated lens and is a 24mm FF equivalent lens.

Hi there,

I own Fuji GFX50S and 63mm f2.8 lense. I found this combination is very good for my photography. However not for portrait, since GF 110mm f2 would be the choice. Since this lense is relatively expensive, I have tried to adopt Canon and Nikon FF lenses by Adapter. Some of wide aperture FF lenses (f1.4 - f1.8) I found work just fine in Fuji GFX and resulted in good quality and bokeh pictures and very minimal vingetting. My question is, other than Autofocus capability of the native Fuji GF lenses, what is the main difference would it make if, let say, we use native Fuji GF 110mm f2 lense compared to adapted 85mm f1.4 FF lense. Does anybody have experience or could provide answers to this. Sharing your experience and answers are highly appreciated.

I own the 50R with the 32-64 (Amazing) and the 45 2.8 (even more amazing).  I just started using my older Minolta lenses such as my 58 1.4, and especially my 135 2.8 (which on the 50r makes it a 105mm lens) and so far I must say it's pretty decent.  Are the images GFX quality?  Heck no, but it's not too shabby.  

I have/had been using my Minolta glass on my X-E1, and all my subsequent cameras.  I honestly didn't think it would work on the 50r well at all, but it's not bad.

Once I've done further testing I'll report back.

    • Any update on this issue? My xpro3 was purchased earlier this year, still under warranty. But I cannot turn it on at all. After a shoot last Saturday, I left it on its shelf and picked it up to shoot this morning: totally unresponsive. Tried 4 different Fuji batteries all charged. No luck. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you. 
    • The reply I received from Fuji back a while ago   “Thank you for your patience regarding this issue.     After speaking to our camera service engineers, they told me there is no coating on the new cameras and while the new LCD panels have a similar colour gamut, they are no longer calibrated by the factory in the same way that they used to be.   They believe this changed around the end of 2019 but they weren't sure.  Nothing that should make a black and white image look sepia though, the LCD will be slightly warmer out of the box.   In the same way that most TV screens and monitors are not colour calibrated from the factory, the LCD screens on our cameras are not either and instead have the option to be adjusted manually by the end user to their preference.   I appreciate this is probably not what you are looking for, but this is how the new generation of cameras are made” I tested a GFX50s I store that was traded in. No issues with the lcd - Seems the more money you spend the lcd is then properly calibrated. The lower end cameras under 1K they ain’t.    very sad to see
    • I'm trying to understand the unmarked aperture ring on the K&F Concept lens adapter. I recently purchased the K&F Concept Minolta AF (Sony A) to Fuji X lens adapter to use with my old Minolta AF lenses; specifically the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22. With the adapter installed (Fujifilm X-E2S), the camera does not show the aperture selected; understandably as this is a "dumb" adapter. The combination works very well together and I have no complaints. The adapter has a clicked aperture ring that allows for 9 stops from fully open to fully closed. Would the 9 stops equate to f1.7, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22 for the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22 lens?   Many Thanks!
