Designed for the FUJIFILM G-mount GFX camera system, this GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR Lens is a wide-angle zoom offering a 25-51mm equivalent focal length range. Covering wide-angle to normal-length perspectives, this zoom is well-suited to everyday shooting applications, and the constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range. A sophisticated optical design pairs a trio of aspherical elements with one super ED element and one ED element to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Balancing the optical assets is an internal focusing mechanism that utilizes a linear AF motor to deliver quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance. A fluorine coating has also been added to the front element to repel moisture and the lens also features a dust-, freeze-, and weather-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions. Additionally, a manual aperture ring is featured for intuitive, tactile adjustment over exposure settings, and a Command position can also be set for camera-based control over the aperture.

FUJIFILM GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR Reviews
Must have lens...
Great lens to have as part of your kit with the Fuji Film GFX. It's really a Versatile must have lands with this particular camera.
Great all rounder
I love this lens. It's bright and sharp and is the lens that spends most time actually attached to my camera. I would liken it to a good medium zoom, think 24-70, 2.8 (although its only the equivalent of about 50mm zoomed in). I use it for assignments, for architecture, general purpose and travel. Its just about OK for portraits but not quite. I'd have to grab one of my other lenses for serious portraiture. It feels solid and well built and made to last. With the new 35-70mm out on the market (I have not tried it), I hear many photographers are buying that lens instead, but this is proven, sharp and bright, so thats why I'm hanging on to it. For the GFX system, in my opinion, I'd say this is one of the top 3 lenses to have in your bag.
Superb image quality, but pricy for what you get
Don't get me wrong, this lens is magnificent. Its image quality is unmatched, and that's definitely the most important aspect of a lens. It is very sharp even wide open. That said, I feel it's a bit overpriced for what you get, but I'll start with the positives. THE GOOD: - As I said, the image quality is superb. f/16 renders an incredible amount of detail. I have not experienced softness shooting wide open like a few of other reviewers have. - This lens is weather sealed. As a landscape photographer, this is a must. I feel more confident being in the field (literally) knowing my lens can get a little bit wet. - Build quality is pretty good. It's still plastic, but a tougher one by the feel of it. I imagine they opted for plastic construction to cut down on both weight and cost, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed it wasn't metal. The Fuji X system spoiled me in that regard. - The feel of the lens is solid and tactile. The zoom has good resistance and has no lens creep (yet) and the aperture ring has a pleasant click. The NOT SO GOOD: - I know this is a larger lens to accommodate the larger sensor but more glass alone shouldn't equate to a high price tag. It has no image stabilization, zoom lock, or even fast aperture to justify the price. The only notable feature this has apart from the optics is the weather sealing. At least they gave us that. But otherwise, this is a $2,300 bare bones basic slower zoom lens. They could've at least given us OIS to help with the slower f/4 aperture. A tripod is most likely necessary with anything slower than 1/60, realistically. You could probably cheat it to 1/30 but you'd have to have a very steady hand. - This isn't really a negative, technically, but it isn't a positive either. This is a very heavy lens. It makes my 50R nosedive and it is not very comfortable to walk around with it around my neck. Like I said, it's not really a negative or a positive, though. It's just part of the territory of owning a medium format system. Bigger sensors requires bigger lenses to cover it. More glass means more weight. So take that for what it is. OVERALL: Overall I like the lens. Many of the negatives don't really affect me because I'm mostly a landscape photographer so my camera is always on a tripod, eliminating the need for OIS, weight relief, and a wider aperture. But those few times I am not shooting landscapes, I do wish I had those other features. Someone who will be using this for studio work and will need to hand hold, however, may need to consider those aspects before purchasing.
GREAT LENS RAZOR SHARP
Great razor sharp images at all focal lengths, just wished it had OIS!
A landscape photog's dream
Sharp across the range and across the image. Heavy but worth its weight in satisfaction.
Very sharp, well built, no negatives.
Great lens for my GFX 100s
Because of the higher entry cost for entering into the medium format ecosystem, this is (so far) the only lens I have for my new GFX 100s camera--but it's plenty! It covers most of the focal ranges I typically shoot in and it's fast, clear, and offers FANTASTIC image quality on my body. Coming from the Canon ecosystem, it was initially strange to have the aperture ring on the lens like this--and I still accidentally mistake it for the zoom ring at times--but I love how in-control I feel having it there. It's a great size and weight for the body and balances well both in my hand and on a tripod. Focusing seems really fast and silent. I'm really loving this lens so far!
Not a prime-killer, but does 100 megapixels justice
It's heavy, but in studio still life, I can't discern any material sharpness differences with this, compared to the 32 and 63 primes. It's *maybe* less optimal in the middle of the zoom, but just barely. I might just be seeing things. I've never felt like I needed it to be faster than f/4. It sure beats swapping primes and dragging a tripod around for studio work. But I'd get the 35-70 or primes if I planned on carrying it around.
