The technical details behind this lens
This new lens joins the current family of interchangeable GF Lenses. It is designed for the GFX Large Format*1 Camera System and covers some of the most frequently used focal lengths by photographers. The GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR lens has an equivalent focal length range of 36mm and 79mm on a smaller 35mm format system, a maximum aperture of F4 and is a natural fit with two other GF Zoom Lenses, GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR and GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR. Together, these three lenses provide photographers with a broad range of focal lengths. This accommodates a wide range of shooting styles, and enables users to be more versatile and creative.
Combining rugged construction with high-performance optics, GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR is an incredibly versatile lens that is perfect for capturing nature, landscapes or portraits. Featuring powerful 5-axis image stabilisation, one super ED lens and a near-silent and high speed autofocus motor, this is the perfect tool for creating images in challenging and unpredictable situations. Its dust and weather-resistant construction allows the lens to operate in temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. Accompanying its high-resolution performance with smooth bokeh will capture the atmosphere of any scene or subject.
Astonishing image resolving power and wide tonal reproduction
GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical elements, one Super ED element and one ED element to effectively control spherical aberration, field curvature and chromatic aberration. This minimises the negative effects of luminance shift and colour bleeding, to deliver astonishing image sharpness.
Compact and lightweight Large Format standard zoom
Weighing 1,005g, measuring 144.5mm long, and having a diameter of 93mm, the lens is portable and compact despite being a 2.2x zoom for a Large Format camera system.
Fast, quiet and highly accurate AF
The use of an Internal Focusing system has reduced the size and weight of the focusing group, which is driven by a linear motor to achieve fast, quiet and highly accurate AF.
