This is a great lens, fast AF, small size, very portable for the GFX system

Overpriced but does the job

If you want a somewhat pancake lens for the GF system to use for street photography this is really the only game in town - not as high-quality images as some of the nearby primes but it is small and unobtrusive and has a relatively fast aperture and focusing speed. The 32-64 f4 zoom covers the same focal length and is almost as fast with image quality that is higher but it is much larger, heavier, and pricier.

Great little lens

Sharp and a bit moody, it does what I want. Wish they made a 50mm with a wider aperture.

A must have lens

This isn't the flashiest lens for the Fuji GFX system, but it does what it does magnificently. ~40mm FF equivalent field of view, which I find to be very versatile. F/3.5 is more than fast enough for typical uses. If you've got a GFX camera, this lens, to me, is nearly a 'must have'. It's (relatively) cheap and doesn't add significant weight. Highly recommended.

Light and sharp

I bought this on special for my GFX50R and although I don’t use it so much (my go to is the 32-64mm), its fab if I want to have a light rig with me and can have the camera on my shoulder all day, for street photography for example.

When I took the lens home and unpacked it, I noticed that the lens looked used and the inside of the lens cap was covered in dust. I used a dust collector for a long time to remove the dust from the lens cap and the lens, and there was a small bump on the edge of the lens cap. The instructions and warranty card had been soaked with water for some reason and were already wrinkled.

I wanted a lens that would not stick out when I'm doing street photography. When people see those loooong lenses, they tend not to let me get candid shots.

Asked by: Robert
The FUJIFILM GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR Lens uses a 62mm filter thread. And you can add that size filter to the lens. The hood that the lens comes with can screw into a filter that has that has a front thread. but you might get some vignette when using it with a filter. This is is some good polarizing filter options, https://bhpho.to/3CTCVqU

What is the aperture equivalent of a 35 mm system compared to f/3.5 of this lens?
Asked by: Achim
The aperture of the FUJIFILM GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR is the same as for any 50mm f/3.5 lens--it's a ratio of focal length to effective aperture diameter, so there is no difference between different formats, only different focal lengths.

does the lens come with a hood ?

does the lens come with a hood ?
Asked by: Herve
As mentioned previously, there is a small metal hood included which screws on to the front of the lens and has its own 43mm lens cap. Worth mentioning, if youre going to use basic filters that do not have threading for filter stacking, you cannot use the hood at the same time. Having said that, I personally have not felt the need to use the hood over the 2 years Ive owned this lens. The optical coatings and element design with the small entrance pupil do quite a bit to eliminate flare and ghosting. I have several photos with the sun directly in the frame, and there are no that I can directly attribute to the lens. (Prismatic reflections off of the image sensors color filter array are occasionally present, but thats a problem for all digital cameras and not specific to Fujifilm or this lens.) I hope this helps.

Do you notice a light whirring noise coming from the lens when attached to camera body? (Not when focusing but when moving/shaking the camera)
Asked by: Yitian
Yes. Much like other mirrorless camera lenses I have used with a linear motor, including some made by Fujifilm for the XF mount (the XF 90mm f/2 R WR LM is probably a more well-known yet extreme case), the floating elements driven by the linear autofocus motors make a quiet whirring or chattering noise when the camera is on. This is the micro motors trying to keep the focusing elements in place as you move. You may also hear the elements making a dull thud when the camera is off or the lens is detached from the camera. Its nothing to worry about. Hope this helps.
