One of the more popular use-cases for a medium format camera system is for high-quality, high-resolution portraiture. With the new Fuji GFX system, the camera maker offered a handful of lenses upon its debut, with those more suited for general photography and landscapes as well as macro, but with the announcement of the GF 110mm f/2 WR lens this past April, Fuji answered the calls of portrait shooters with a short telephoto prime lens with a super-fast aperture. Offering a flattering 87mm-equivalent focal lens and an f/2 aperture, the GF 110mm lens is a class portrait optic: low distortion, pleasing subject isolation, and smooth bokeh.
Our intrepid Maine-based photographer Jeremy Gray, who happens to own a Fuji GFX, was the clear choice to tackle a Field Test with this new Fuji lens. As we've seen with other Fuji GFX lenses, the new 110mm f/2 is another stunning optic. The resolving power is incredible, and while the f/2 aperture paired with the large medium format sensor can make it very tricky to use, when done right, the results are simply stunning.
