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.
