article Fuji GF 100-200mm f/5.6
« on: April 28, 2024, 11:52:19 am »

I read" Another strong point of the Fujifilm GF 100-200mm f4 is build quality..."
I read "A variable aperture is acceptable for this lens, even if it extends to f/6.3 at the long end..."

I thought from the info at Fujifilm it is a constant F/5.6 for the whole zoom range.

And I think a slow lens like  100-200 F/5.6  (79-158mm in 35mm format equivalent)    costing 2000 euro better be good for that money.

I've been using this lens, along with the 45-100 f4, for some time now and I love it.  Having the 50S, its image stabiliser is a real bonus but regardless of that, it's one of the sharpest lenses I've used across its entire focal range.  Having been used to carrying Fuji's GX680III around with its 100-200 and support, the GF100-200 is light as a feather...well sort of.  It's light enough to carry all day and won't stress the camera mount unduly.  I rarely use filters but do often carry a polariser, especially when shooting landscapes (luckily I have lots of 67mm filters from my Contax 35mm kit), and that clever sliding flap in the hood makes turning the polariser a breeze.  For an oldie like myself that's been shooting 6x7, 6x8 and 6x9 over many decades, people bleating about the weight and size of a lens like this simply makes me smile.  This is beautifully engineered; its IQ is exemplary, and it extends the versatility of the Fuji GFX system.  It certainly gets my vote.
