The Fujinon GF 110mm f/2 is my primary lens for the GFX system and one of the deciding factors when it came to investing in my GFX 50R. For me, the way this lens renders never ceases to impress me. It is sharp and contrasty where it needs to be and soft and forgiving when required. The transition between in-and-out-of focus is gorgeous. For me, this is what truly makes the images from this lens shine.
In the field, it can be a bit of a pain to work with this lens. It is large and heavy to begin with, but what truly makes it difficult is the breathing. Focusing this lens requires moving several huge elements and the composition changes significantly during this process. It is certainly worth roughly focusing before you start locking in a composition.
Once you begin shooting, though, all of that goes away and the images begin to shine. For the portraits in my Tattoos of Asia project, I can’t think of another lens I’d rather use. You can see my full review of this lens down the bottom of this page.
