Fujifilm GF 110mm f/2 First Shots

No, this isn’t a review of the GF110mm f/2 lens for Fujifilm’s medium format system.

This is just a tribute.

I knew it was going to be good when I bought it earlier today, and I put it through some paces at the local botanical gardens and… well… you know the story.

It’s a REALLY good lens, and when it’s paired with Fuji’s 100-megapixel sensor… it just sings with detail.

Take this shot at a full 100 megapixels:

The deer had stopped close to my car as I was driving to the gardens, and I was able to get this shot after awkwardly positioning in the car from the passenger window.

The image is so full of detail where it matters! Here’s a crop:

What’s wild is that this crop is only about 23 megapixels or so. HOWEVER, the detail is so incredibly rich that I can use Gigapixel to pump up the resolution and get this baby up to a size that can still be printed to 80 inches at 240 dpi. That’s stunning!

The detail that the 100 captures allows this kind of cropping… and that’s amazing. (BTW, all the shots in this blog are at f/2)

The deer were getting antsy so they started moving away. Here is a 100% crop of this one, again at f/2:

When I arrived at the gardens, I was amazed by the light illuminating some of the botanicals. The sky would mostly be cloudy, but moments like these allowed the colors to burst:

The clouds mostly occupied the rest of my time there, but even in subdued light, the Fujifilm GF 110 f/2 did a fantastic job. The focus, in particular, was rock solid, even in the wind. And that’s with the Fujifilm GFX 100s, not the fancy new kid on the block, the GFX 100ii. It never had an issue focusing where I wanted it to.

I only spent an hour with the GF110 so far, so stay tuned for more as I take it out on some of my country adventures!
