FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release the FUJINON GF100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR (GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR) in mid-February 2019. This will expand the line-up of GF interchangeable lenses for the GFX Series of medium-format mirrorless digital cameras that carry the large-size FUJIFILM G Format image sensors, approximately 1.7x the size of 35mm full-frame sensors. The GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR is the first telephoto zoom GF lens with the maximum f-stop value of 5.6 and focal length range of 100mm-200mm (equivalent to 79-158mm in the 35mm film format), making it a perfect choice for landscape and nature photography by that accentuating the main photo subject.

GF Lenses are Fujifilm's highest-grade lenses that deliver astonishing image resolving performance and rich tonal reproduction, made possible by the company's outstanding optical design technology and production technology that process lens surfaces at micron-level precision. The expertise has been nurtured with the development of industry-leading FUJINON lenses, including cine lenses that were awarded the Engineering Emmy ® Award by the U.S. Television Academy. The GF lenses bring out the full potential of the FUJIFILM GFX 50S and FUJIFILM GFX 50R mirrorless digital cameras. They fully support the 100MP+ image sensor, to be incorporated in the GFX Series' flagship model, currently under development. Coupled with Fujifilm's unique colour reproduction technology, these lenses deliver image quality of the world's highest level.

The GF100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR follows in the footsteps of previous GF lenses by offering amazing image resolution and rich tonal reproduction to capture the atmosphere of every scene. Its 5.0-stop image stabilization function assists you when shooting hand-held. 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 outdoors in light rain or in dusty conditions. It can be mounted on the already available FUJINON Teleconverter GF1.4X TC WR (GF1.4X TC WR), a high-performance teleconverter that extends lens's focal length by 1.4 times, to cover the focal length range of 140mm-280mm (equivalent to 111-221mm in the 35mm film format) for even greater shooting coverage.
