Pros:Construction quality: it is equipped with 11 seals to withstand dust and weathering, fast, quiet and highly precise autofocus; stabilization of 2-5 stops (in the field you have to consider which GFX you mount it on), wide dynamic range; engraving already at f/4 from edge to edge; extended range of focal lengths, versatility; extremely portable and "compact" despite being a 2.2x zoom; front diameter for filter mounting equal to 82 mm; already optimized for the 100 MPX sensor. The ring indicating the diaphragms has an excellent clutch in the run
Cons:Price (at the time of online entry of my review a very interesting discount campaign is underway); footprint (depends on use, but those who own GFX are "used to it"...)
Opinion:The standard GF 45-100 mm f/4 R LM OIS WR zoom covers many of the most commonly used focal lengths; it has an equivalent focal length of 36-79mm on a FF system. It integrates seamlessly with the other two zoom lenses in the GF series: these three lenses cover a range of focal lengths that start from 25 mm and reach 158 mm respectively. Extraordinary resolving power = engraving already at full aperture (the maximum aperture is not among the widest ever and is equal to f/4 while the minimum aperture is f/32) and wide tonal range are in my opinion the 2 main characteristics of the lens... at 100 mm returns a "crunchy" image without being artificial. The optics consist of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspheric elements, a Super ED element and an ED element to effectively control spherical aberration and chromatic aberration: the latter can be found under certain conditions at full aperture. The AF is driven by a linear motor that ensures extreme precision, speed and silence. Another point in its favor is the five stop factor image stabilization system very important factor in order to make the most of the high-resolution sensors of uns stabilized GFX cameras, especially when making freehand images. Field of use: it can be used for portraits (in my view in general - I stress - it could replace the 110 mm f/2, more specifically at f/4 the bokeh is creamy and very gradual in the detachment from the background vs 110 mm and finally excellent in the studio), for the landscapes (perfect for engraving that also has diaphragms pushed e.g. f/22 and above all absolute absence of chromatic aberration), for street photography and travel more generally (but I emphasize that in this sense the footprint / weight is felt); I have some doubts in the use for photo-journalism and for naturalistic shots (taking into account the limits of the MF and its footprint)...
