GF lenses are Fujifilm’s highest-grade lenses that deliver superior image quality with high-resolution performance and wide tonal reproducibility. This is made possible by the use of Fujifilm’s exceptional optical design technology and production technology that processes lens surfaces with the precision of a submicron level, fostered through the development of FUJINON lenses. The industry-leading lens lineup includes cine lenses that have recently won the Engineering Emmy Awards***. These lenses can be mounted on the FUJIFILM GFX 100 (“GFX100”), released in June this year, to bring out the full performance of GFX100’s 102 million pixels image sensor, achieving the world’s highest level of photographic image quality by utilizing the company’s unique color reproduction technology.
