FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release the "FUJINON  GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR" lens for the GFX Medium Format system on February 14th, 2019. This lens is the first telephoto zoom lens that has a 35mm equivalent focal range of 79-158mm. This lens is ideal for shooting landscape and nature photography thanks to its optical image stabilizer and weather and dust resistant construction.

GF Lenses are Fujifilm’s best quality lenses. This quality is achieved by utilizing the finest optical design and production technologies to achieve high-resolution and rich tonal reproduction.

Fujifilm has already released the "FUJIFILM GFX 50S" and "FUJIFILM GFX 50R” as well as eight "GF Lenses". All of which have proved popular among professional photographers and photo enthusiasts. They praise the system for its ability to capture high levels of detail, giving a three-dimensional feel, all in compact, lightweight bodies with simple operation.

The GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR is a telephoto zoom lens that is capable of capturing the atmosphere of any scene through a combination of high-resolution performance and rich bokeh effect. In addition, the lens is dust and weather resistant and capable of operating in temperatures down to -10°C.  Attaching the “GF1.4X TC WR”, a 1.4x teleconverter provides extended coverage equivalent to approximately 111-221mm in 35mm format terms without any image quality deterioration.
