Fujifilm has just presented a long-awaited medium-format lens - GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR. Apart from the lens, the GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter and the MCEX-18G WR 18mm and MCEX-45G WR 45mm macro rings have also had their premieres.
Fujinon GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR is a construction consisting of 16 elements placed in 11 groups. Among them we can find two lenses made of ED glass and one made of Super ED glass. The lens has a 9-blade aperture with the maximum light of f/4. With the focal length of 250mm, which is the equivalent of 200mm for full-frame frame, we can expect perfect background blurring.
