Offering a broad field of view within a compact form factor, the FUJIFILM GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR is a svelte wide-angle prime lens for the G-mount GFX medium format camera system. A sophisticated optical design incorporates a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements, which help to realize a high degree of clarity, color accuracy, and sharpness, along with low distortion for a distinctly realistic look. The focusing group within the optical layout is also physically small, which promotes quick focusing operation to suit working with moving subjects. Physically, the lens sports a dust-, freeze-, and weather-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions and a manual aperture ring is featured for intuitive, tactile adjustment over exposure settings.

FUJIFILM GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR Reviews
Nice Angle of View - Flare issues
I purchased this 30mm from B&H to give me something close to my now defunct classic 45mm Xpan angle of view. This Fuji 30mm in the 65:24 GFX aspect crop has an angle width=72.26 degrees / angle height=30.25 degrees while the Xpan 45mm has angle width=71.68 degrees / angle height=42.5 degrees in pano mode. Very close! This 30mm is a good well-made lens with little detectable distortion. The rendition is sharp with pleasing contrast. Nice aperture ring too. Wish it had a depth of field indicator, but oh well. One thing, though - the lens flare is awful and ugly when you get it - often unfixable multiple blue dots - and star shape is really terrible and doesn't come to proper points until F32 which you'd never use due to diffraction - so forget about directing this toward the sun or shooting in raking light without the lens hood, shooting nights-capes with points of light, or shooting backlit subjects. I've really been spoiled by Leica and Hasselblad lenses. That being said, for anything else, it's a good focal length for architecture, interiors (avoid bright windows), and cityscapes. It'll remain in my bag for all of its good qualities.
My favorite 24mm view. This lens is sharp and fast enough for my style of shooting. Excellent clarity and color.
Too wide angle
It's angle of view is about 90 degrees. I wish I had got a narrower one.
Works as advertised.
I've only had a couple of days shooting with the lens, so this is somewhat provisional, but the photos I shot were nice and clear and I have no issues with the lens whatever. I'm happy.
Love this lens.
Definitely a high quality lens. Love the focal length. Perfect for wide angle shots.
Sharp as a tack.
I recently bought this 24 mm full-frame equivalent lens for my Fuji GFX 100S body. It's perfect. Fast enough, very sharp like all GF lenses, renders colors and contrast perfectly, and is light enough to carry all day. Highly recommended.
I was buying a future favorite ...
I didn't know it when I got it, but I was buying what could easily become my favorite lens. I wanted a wide angle lens, but thought the GF 30mm might be just a little too wide, but I gave it a shot anyways. Happy I did! It works very smoothly, well integrated with the GFX50R, and I find the field of view perfect for my landscape work. The lens is very compact and light, making it a pleasure to work with. I've had it for a month, been out a couple of times shooting with it, so this review is more of a first acquaintance observation.
Another GX lens with weak focusing tension
This is the second Fuji GX lens hat that was defective or simply poorly designed. The manual focusing ring is so loose that if you simply touch it moves shifting focus. I had the same issue with an 80mm. The dampening on my 45-100 and 63mm is perfect.
