FUJIFILM GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR Lens
Characterized by its especially slim design, the GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR Lens from FUJIFILM is a compact 40mm-equivalent prime designed for the medium format G-mount GFX camera system. Its sleek profile makes it ideal for walkaround and everyday shooting and completes a truly portable medium format system. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which controls distortion and spherical aberrations in order to realize a high degree of sharpness and clarity. Balancing the optical attributes, the lens also utilizes a linear AF motor for quick and quiet focusing performance, while a manual aperture ring also avails intuitive exposure adjustment, and a Command position permits making camera-based aperture selections. Additionally, the lens is also dust, freeze, and weather resistant for use in trying environmental conditions.
Prime 50mm lens offers a 40mm equivalent focal length to realize a normal field of view for working with a variety of subjects.
Impressively compact "pancake" design makes this lens especially portable and ideal for everyday shooting.
The nine-element, six-group optical design incorporates one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for cleaner, more realistic rendering and sharper image quality.
A linear AF motor is used for especially quick and quiet focusing performance and is well-suited to both photo and video applications.
Physical aperture ring allows for intuitive adjustment over exposure settings and incorporates a C (Command) position to permit camera-based aperture setting.
Dust- and weather-sealed physical construction enables working in harsh climates and temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Hoya 62mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter
The Hoya 62mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and protect the front of your lens. Its clear design allows you to pair this filter with others or leave on lenses at all times as a general protective filter. It can also help to reduce dust and moisture and keep them from reaching your lens element while providing additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.
Hoya HMC filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, over 97% light transmission is possible in order to maintain contrast and color fidelity. The UV NXT filters are constructed from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.
Absorbs UV light, which can cause outdoor photos to appear hazy and indistinct.
Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.
HMC multi-coating affords greater than 97% light transmission and helps to reduce flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface for greater contrast and color fidelity.
Crafted from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.
