FUJIFILM GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Reviews

Superb Low-angle Landscape Lens

By john
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-15

When you want to apply a wide angle to landscape - which can make a very nice shot - this lens is fantastic. I took the shot of Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland planning to highlight the hexagonal rocks in the foreground. This lens allowed me to get rocks all the way to the horizon, plus some ocean blur and a good amount of sky. I have this shot in a 24x18 print and the detail and depth of field are incredible. (It was a 30-second exposure at f/29 with a polarizer.) I was able to take a number of nice shots, and the lens is easy to work with, but the quality of the shot is what matters most, and this lens was awesome.

Sharpness all around and top-notch construction using grade A materials. The GFX 100S loves this lens. The manual aperture adjustment ring has perfect tension and the focus ring feels dreamy. Filter rings are a breeze to spin on and off. Love it.

I've owned this lens for about a year and have been in love with it since day 1. It really is the prefect wide angle for landscape. It was great with the 50R and is now a perfect fir on the 100s. I will keep this lens forever.

I bought this lens to replace my Laowa 17mm for GFX mount as I wanted the weather sealing and AF capability. I have been using this lens extensively for my abandoned buildings projects in Georgia and Pennsylvania and my publisher loved the quality of the images that we put into my first book. I have this lens paired with my GFX 50R and it is a stellar combination, I am hoping to eventually upgrade to the GFX 100S and I can just imagine how amazing the images would be with 102MP!

Sharper than you think

I found this wide angle lens can out do my kit zoom lens at 33mm even up to 50mm. Although the pixels are less per angle of view degrees, the pixel edges are hit the mark on separating detail. Really an amazing feature.

I am mainly a flowers, landscape, sunset kind of guy. I will jump into the Fuji medium format very soon. What 2 or 3 lenses would be best for my prefered subjects?
Asked by: Charles
A great combination of lenses would be the GF 23mm f/4; GF 32-64mm f/4; and the GF 120f/4 Macro. If you prefer a slightly longer "normal lens" you can delete the GF 32-64mm f/4 and pick up the GF 45-100mm f/4. All of the FUJI lenses are superb!

Does this vignette when using an 82-77 step down ring and the Formatt Hitech Firecrest 85mm square filters (with the new style holder)?
Asked by: Jake
Yes, the step-down ring 82-77mm will create vignetting on the FUJIFILM GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Lens which is equivalent to the angle of view of an 18mm lens (35mm). The vignette will increment if a square filter holder system is attached in front of the lens.
