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.

    • Hi, DaveC. Thank you so much for the really valuable information...very much appreciated! On the power off/on, I guess I was being a little too impatient when pressing the shutter. On the auto ISO, I'll definitely give it a try, as that's a pretty important one for me. I have found that the ISO button and joystick pretty easy to reach while looking at the EVF, so maybe there's no reason to reassign the top left dial. With only a little time spent with the X-S10 so far, I have found the AF and image quality outstanding, as you noted. Even with the challenges of learning a new system, it's been fun getting to know my new toy! Again, thank you for responding to my inquiry. Pentax Forums is a valuable source of information for Pentax users, and it's nice to know Fuji X Forum can provide similar advice and support. Cheers!  
    • OK thanks for the reply,  It's seems like a pretty straightforward thing to implement with all the super fast ssd available in the market.  Maybe in the next model..
    • I don't believe it is possible sadly.   But would be great if it was. 
    • Welcome rickc, I too was new to Fuji when I got my X-S10 and 16-80mm last December. It is a great camera and lens combo. Point 1. To wake up the camera just half press the shutter button but keep it pressed for a second or too and it will wake up. When half pressed you will feel the IBIS doing its thing , thats OK, just keep it pressed till it wakes up. Point 2. Set the X-S10 to M mode on the mode dial and you will have aperure on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear dial. Then set the iso to Auto, Press the iso button on the top plate and use the joy stick to scroll down to the auto iso settings. The user manual does explain the auto iso settings quite well (the pdf that is). Note you can also re-assign the top left dial to exposure compensation if you like that as well. I have been using these settings just lately to photograph butterflies at high shutter speeds. I came from using Canon and Nikon cameras and find the image quality is outstanding and hope you continue to enjoy the camera. Best wishes DaveC.
