When one buys into a medium format system, even the relatively inexpensive ones like Fuji’s GFX series, one knows that it’s going to be an expensive ride. It’s not much of a surprise. Even though the bodies are a similar size to a high-end DSLR, they contain much larger (and more expensive) sensors, and the lenses need bigger and heavier glass than lenses designed for full-frame systems.
AstrHori, though, has announced a new low-budget option for Fuji GFX shooters who want something on the wide end and don’t want to pay a fortune for it. Today, they’ve announced the new AstrHori 40mm f/5.6 manual focus lens for Fuji GFX, which offers a field of view equivalent to around 31mm on full-frame. As well as being light on price, it’s also light on weight, coming in at only 333g.
