  • Oleg

    If you translate it into a full frame, is it 24-45 \ 2.8-4? Why is it better than a full-frame 24-70 \ 2.8

    • Victor

      Probably because the full-frame 24-70 will be difficult to use on the Fuji G.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      analogue 28-55 / 3.5-4.5
      it is better that the vignette will not be given on GFX cameras

  • Oleg

    I mean that the full frame is a very balanced solution with its fast fixes and light reportage zooms on one side. But the price of the carcass approached the price of the canon R5, and the top-end A1 from Sonev is one and a half times more expensive than this medium format

  • Oleg

    And the Fujifilm GFX 50S II lacks phase detection autofocus, making full frame even more preferable.

    • Victor

      Preferred for what? Anyone who needs a picture and a medium format resolution will not even look at a full frame. Who needs a light travel camera - the same thing.

      Everything is bought according to their tasks.

      • Andrei

        That's right, fuji crop and fuji sf, and ff nafig is not needed with such prices :-)

        • Maksim

          A Fuji crop with optics is not much cheaper than Full Frame.

  • Alexander

    And Fuji generally know how to make high-aperture glasses, or again for 1k bucks they are trying to sell not only that dark glass, but also with a variable aperture?

    • Oleg

      they definitely have a lot of high-aperture optics: 56 \ 1.2, 50 \ 1.0 for example, and a lot of optics with 1.4 for crop. Well, this one for the medium format is generally inexpensive. Aperture for medium format 80mm 1: 1.7 R WR and 110mm 1: 2 R LM WR analog 64 \ 1.2 and 88 \ 1.4 for a full frame approx. Buy this kit in a set plus one of the high-aperture ones and here's your happiness if you are not yet ruined

      • Alexander

        Yes, I'm more about zooms) Zooms - all of them are dark. But you really want to attach something with a constant aperture to your X-T1 so that you can shoot a reportage normally.

        • Victor

          So is there 16-55? Not that dark.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          x-t1 and this lens - you want to create a monster!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      This is a medium format, and Fuji has the lightest fix for a medium format. In terms of this lens, it is the same as 28-50 / 2,8-4 at full frame.

      • Victor

        So still 2.8-4 or 3.5-4.5? :)
