This will be a narrow-angle lens so it will be suitable for portraits, landscapes, and nature with a long focusing distance and still give the highest quality of GF lens line.
In terms of design, this lens has an optical structure with 20 elements in 13 groups, in which there are 2 Super ED lens elements and 1 aspherical lens elements, which minimizes chromatic aberration and distortion to help capture images more perfect with high color reproduction. In addition, to ensure high performance for the lens, Fujifilm also equipped with a linear autofocus motor system that enables the camera to focus faster and quieter in combination with a locking mechanism, preventing movement. The need for lenses when the device is inactive increases the life of the lens more than other telephoto lenses. In addition, with the upgrade and change of the position of the linear motor cluster, the lens can keep the focusing position as before when the camera is turned off, making it possible to capture the focus much faster when shooting.
The lens offers a 5.0-stop image stabilization performance, which means you can easily hold and manipulate shots without worrying about blurring. The lens’s weather-sealed construction makes it dust and weather resistant and capable of operating in temperatures down to -10°C, allowing you to shoot even in outdoors in light rain or in dusty conditions, and achieving a high level of reliability as photography equipment for professional photographers.
