A Standard Zoom for Medium Format: A Review of the Fujifilm GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR Lens

There is no shortage of 24-70mm lenses for full frame cameras, but of course, when it comes to medium format, the landscape is a bit different. Fuji's GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR lens fills that gap, and this excellent video review takes a look at how it performs in practice. 

Coming to you from DPReview, this great video takes a look at the Fuji GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR lens. With a 36-79mm full frame equivalent focal length range, the GF 45-100mm f/4 fills the standard zoom lens role in Fuji's medium format lineup. The lens features one Super ED and one ED element for reduced chromatic aberrations and improved clarity, three aspherical elements for reduced distortion and improved sharpness, optical image stabilization of up to five stops (which should pair nicely with the in-body image stabilization in the GFX 100), rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh, and a dust- and weather-sealed magnesium alloy body for working in wet and cold conditions. Altogether, the GF 45-100mm f/4 looks like one of the most versatile lenses in Fuji's medium format lineup and one that would likely spend a lot of time on the camera. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
