The technical details behind this lens

The GF35-70 mm is a compact and lightweight zoom lens, weighing approximately 390g, with a 62mm filter size and outstanding image-resolving performance and focal length range covering the frequently-used 35mm wide-angle to 70mm (equivalent to 28mm – 55mm in the 35mm film format). The highly portable form factor will broaden the scope of applications for GFX camera systems, equipped with a large-format sensor. The retractable barrel structure reduces the length to approximately 73.9mm when fully collapsed for added portability, making it a perfect lens to carry when traveling The compact and lightweight focusing elements are complemented by a stepping motor for silent, fast, and highly accurate AF performance, enabling smooth focus on any subject. The lens offers a minimum working distance of 35cm across its zoom range, enabling a close-up shot of subject matter of approximately 25cm from the front element of the lens. This gives the lens the ability to cater to a variety of situations, from tabletop photography to snapshots, portraiture, and landscape photography. The lens has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction.

Advanced versatility that covers all the focal lengths required to capture day-to-day scenes

The GF35-70 mm covers versatile focal lengths from 35mm in wide-angle to 70mm (equivalent to 28mm -55mm in the 35mm film format) to cater to a wide range of situations including landscape, portraiture, and street photography. It has one of the shortest minimum working distances of 35cm among interchangeable lenses for the GFX System, enabling a close-up shot of a subject approximately 25cm from the front element of the lens. The GF35-70 mm consists of 11 elements, including one aspherical element and two ED elements, in nine groups. Its advanced image-resolving capability with well-controlled spherical and chromatic aberrations, provides a precise description of each scene, even when shot at the wide-angle side.

 

The most compact and lightest-weight body among GF lenses offering high-speed AF and advanced mobility

The GF35-70 mm has been designed with a compact and lightweight construction, weighing approximately 390g and measuring 73.9mm (when retracted) ?96.4mm (wide end) ?95.7mm (tele end) with the filter thread size of 62mm. The low operation noise during focusing makes it suitable not only for stills but also for video recording. The lens also supports cameras' Face / Eye Detection AF modes. Fast and highly accurate AF is achieved in as quickly as 0.13 seconds in silence for fast focusing on the subject's face/ eyes. This is particularly effective in portraiture that involves subject movement, capturing a momentary change in facial expression. The lens barrel is weather-sealed at 9 locations so that it is dust- and moisture-resistant and can be used in temperatures as low as -10?. The lens withstands rain even during hand-held shooting, seizing shutter opportunities in the toughest of conditions.
