FUJIFILM GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM WR Reviews

A Very Good Zoom!!

By Jared
Rated 5 out of 5

At first, I will state I have never been a fan of zoom lenses. There are too many moving parts. With that, on to the review. I performed a series of quick tests to see how well the zoom performed and was a little concerned about the 45mm end of this copy of the lens. I was going to return it, but after careful consideration I determined it was OK. There is softness in the corners that extend about 1-1/2" into the frame at the 45 focal length. It is not so soft that its bothersome, but its there. I own a 45mm prime and that lens' resolving power is phenomenal across the frame. Everywhere else in the 45-100 frame is just as good as the prime. At 60-100, the lens performs flawlessly! It is very pleasing how well this lens performed at the standard to long end. Tack sharp to the corners. Beautiful. I am very pleased. I should have bought this instead of the 45 prime. Its that good!

Amazing lens for an amazing camera

For the past few years, my walk-around combination has been a Nikkor 28-300mm lens on a Nikon D850. I have loved the versatility of the big zoom range. But I bought the new medium format Fuji GFX100s which is fantastic (separate review) so I needed a lens for it, and Fuji doesn't make an ultra zoom (yet?) so I chose the 45-100mm as closest to the range I usually use. The 35mm e quivalent of the Fuji 45-100mm is 36-79mm, so that sounds as if I'm giving up a lot at the top end. But in fact I'm not. Suppose I shoot an 11648x8736 image at 100 mm that includes a much larger image than the one I wanted, and then I crop out all but a 4928x3280 portion that is what I was after. I get the same image, with the same resolution, that I would have gotten shooting with the D850 at 236 mm. So in fact I am only losing the upper 64mm of my 300 mm lens zoom range. And at shorter focal lengths, I'm getting way better resolution. But what I really want to talk about is the fantastic performance of this lens. I did my first few dozen pictures in a low light setting that mostly pushed the auto-ISO up to 12800, and I was expecting noise and maybe shake problems. But the images are fantastic - nearly noise-free, and the image stabilization kept them superbly sharp. This lens works wonders. In operation it is fine. It is a bit bigger and heavier than my 28-300mm Nikkor, but not so much that it becomes a problem. The larger sensor requires a larger diameter lens, namely 89mm versus the 77mm of my Nikkors, and that extra glass makes it weigh about half a pound more. But that was not enough to make it unwieldy. It isn't cheap, but it's in the same price range as eg the Nikkor 24-70mm. I may eventually buy its 32-64mm partner for wider shots. For now I'm just blown away.

I was leaning towards the 32-64, but so glad I got this one first. Extremely sharp and quick to focus. Gives a great 3D look. Well built and much lighter than it looks. I haven't used my 50mm at all.

Amazing lens!

The only thing that I can think of that could possibly be improved is that if one is using this lens for landscape photography, it would be nice to have it a little wider at times like open to 32mm but this is probably not even possible. The positive end of this lens is endless and it turned out even better then I expected. This lens is extremely well made as are all of the Fujifilm lenses. Both the zoom and focus rings are very smooth. The aperture ring is perfect and has the nice C and A options with the lock. The image stabilization of this lens I find to be easily worth at least 4 stops if not 5. This lens is simply very well made with the weather sealing and all of the options. Pertaining to the performance of this lens, I find it to be very sharp from the middle to the edges all the way from f4 to f16. It may not perform quite as well near the edges at f4 but nothing that sticks out. There is a little bit of vignette near the edge at f4 if you turn off the auto correct on the lens but nothing that it does not take care of automatically within the camera when shooting. One thing that I was really surprised with was the bokeh. Of course when not zoomed in so shooting at the 45mm end, there is not really that much separation from the background as it can only open to f/4. However, when at the zoomed in end (100mm) and shooting wide open, one can really get very nice separation of the subject from the background and the bokeh is very smooth and pleasant. I was really surprised with just how nice it is in this way. I have been using this lens even more than I expected as it can really cover a wide variety of situations. It can be a very nice landscape lens that can cover tons of scenes, especially with how much one can crop with the 100mp on the camera while also being a very respectable portrait lens at the same time. I have enjoyed this lens even more than I expected!

Most Useful lens I've ever owned.

Short of owning every Prime Fujifilm makes between 45-110mm $$$ This is an all in one Studio and On location BEAST. Bokeh is pleasing. As a first or primary lens this is the one.

Most use for my studio

I already have 45 and 110 primes. So I planned to get 63 and 80. But because my studio work never use wide open so I want to try this zoom. It turn out to be a great lens and I use it most on GFX100. I wish it can gt closer to the subject but I can get an adapter for that.

Amazing Normal Zoom

If you're going to get only one lens for the Fuji GF system, this is the one to get. Tack sharp at f/4 at any focal length, it's a dream to use and produces outstanding results. If I had to nitpick, I don't like the fact that it extends as it zooms (the 100-200 does not), but that's my only complaint. This is my default lens to use on the 100S, and so far I'm beyond satisfied.

A great lens!

This is a wonderful lens with a large number of ways to use it. It opens up wide enough to use for many landscape opportunities while also zooming in tight enough for portrait photos with very smooth bokeh. Of course, it would be even nicer if it could allow one more stop of light in it but there is a limit of what is possible when using a sensor of this size. I have found no issues with this lens at all. It is very sharp from edge to edge, even wide open. There is practically no chromatic aberration, the image stabilization works amazingly well such that a person gets at least 5 stops worth of benefit. If there has been anything desired, it might be that when shooting landscape there are times I wished it would open up a little bit wider. So if a person was wanting a lens to predominantly shoot landscape, the 32-64mm might be a better fit but pertaining to the lenses performance, I have found no faults in the slightest!
