Distinguished by its impressive speed, the FUJIFILM GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR is a short portrait-length prime for the G-mount GFX mirrorless medium format system. The bright f/1.7 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also benefits depth of field control for precise selective focus applications. Optically, the lens uses a pair of low dispersion elements and one aspherical element, which correct a variety of aberrations and help to achieve high sharpness and clarity. Additionally, despite its fast design, this lens is also relatively compact and lightweight for handheld use and sports a weather-sealed design for working in trying weather conditions.
Short portrait-length prime lens offers a 63mm equivalent focal length to realize a slightly narrowed field of view for isolating subject matter.
Impressively bright f/1.7 maximum aperture offers great control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques and also suits working in low-light conditions.
Two Super ED elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing throughout the aperture and focusing ranges for notable clarity and colour fidelity.
One aspherical element controls distortion and spherical aberrations in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering.
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. Also, the front element features a fluorine coating to repel dust, dirt, and moisture and to aid in cleaning.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
