This excellent video review takes a look at the lens, including its performance and image quality, and also offers some helpful portrait posing tips in the process.
Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR lens. At f/1.7, the lens opens up almost a half of a stop wider than even the highly respected GF 110mm f/2, and with a 63mm-equivalent focal length, it looks to be a versatile lens, suitable for anything from portraiture to low-light events coverage. Alongside the extreme design, the lens has an array of features to improve performance and image quality, including two Super ED elements for reduced chromatic aberrations, an aspherical elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness, dust- and weather-sealing, fluorine-coated front element, and rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks like quite the premium option for portrait photographers. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Trotti.
