A list of every GF-Mount lens available from Fujifilm and third-party lens manufacturers that work for the Fujifilm GFX 50s.
There are also many full-frame lenses that can work on the GFX 50s. You will get vignetting but it’s nothing a little crop can’t fix. For this, I’ve posted some adapters that can be useful to adapt vintage lenses.
There are a few adapters still on the way that will work sort of as the opposite of speed boosters, so they will have a built-in element that will allow full-frame lenses to fill the surface area of this medium format sensor. I’ll list those when they are available.

Fujifilm G-Mount Lens List
Currently, there aren’t too many lenses available for the GFX but the list grows. Fujifilm has done a great job of covering the range most people will need for a camera in this class.
When picking lenses for the medium format Fujifilm system you take into consideration the crop factor of the larger sensor.
With the current GFX sensor the crop factor is about .8, technically 0.79. I’ll list the 35mm equivalent lengths along with the lenses so you don’t have to think about it.
F-Stop Equiv With These Charts
I don’t think my f-Stop equivalency calculations for the depth of field here is perfect, but it’s really close and should at least put you in the ballpark of the equivalency of the characteristics of the depth of field compared to a full-frame camera.
Keep in mind that if an f4 lens behaves like an f3.16 full-frame lens, it still will only let in an f4 amount of light. This calculation is only for comparing the depth of field characteristics.
There are some other nice benefits of large sensor cameras in terms of the way the lenses render bokeh. They will typically allow the bokeh to look nicer as the subject is further away. Bokeh usually gets a little busy as the subject moves further back, and the medium format allows for more distance before getting that chatter in the bokeh – depending on the lens of course.

Fujifilm Lens Codes
GF – Fuji’s G series lens mount, for the GFX cameras. Not to be confused with the Nikon G-Mount. They are not the same.
OIS – Optical Image Stabilization.
R – Stands for ring. It means the lens is equipped with an aperture ring.
WR – Weather Resistant.
LM – Linear Motor, rapid movement, and silent focus.
APD – Stands for Apodization. Will produce even fall-off on your out of focus highlights. Makes better Bokeh.
List of Third-Party GFX Lenses
Slowly more and more third-party lenses are being introduced to the GFX line up and I’ll continue to list those here as I find them and their country of origin.
Irix is a Swiss brand that uses Samyang (I think) optics and engineering. An interesting story with IRIX, behind the brand, is Hubert Grzegorz Adamczyk who was behind a company that used to be the European distributor for Samyang lenses. He created a new operation working with Samyang to develop lenses branded under a swiss letterbox, likely for tax and marketing reasons.
At the end of the day, IRIX is a company started by a polish guy that works with Korea for optics. This is great because Samyang lenses are fantastic now. They’ve made huge strides in the last 10 years and it’s great seeing their optics wrapped with some actual compelling lens designs.

Chinese GFX Lenses
Kipon GFX Lenses
Kipon has released its 75mm f2.4 lens for the GFX lens. The 75mm is probably their best lens and the most popular.

ZY Optics – Mitakon Zhongyi G Lenses
Mitakon has started making lenses for the GFX system or the G-Mount. Mitakon is a decent lens company based out of China. They use interesting designs usually with several ultra-high refractive elements to get very fast lenses as small as possible. Often they’re not as bright, but you still get nice bokeh at a good price with decent build quality.
These Chinese companies get better over time and they continue to invest in new and better equipment. Mitakon designs keep getting better as their team learns and grows. They’re definitely worth a try and they are very popular for shooters that want fast lenses on a budget. Be sure to thoroughly test these lenses when you buy them, especially if you buy them during a flash sale where camera stores try to offload the duds.

Venus Optics Lenses For Fujifilm GFX
Venus Optics has a 17mm f4 lens coming soon to the GFX system. Their lenses have great build quality and fantastic output. A 17mm would give you a 13.4mm field of view equivalency with the depth of field output equal to f3.16 from a full-frame camera.

Best UV Filters For The G-Mount Lenses
With such expensive lenses, it makes sense to have a few UV filters for when you’re out in the field and the weather is questionable.
Personally, I prefer B+W and have always found their quality to be superior.
There are a few different types of B+W UV filters, multi-coated, nano-coated, then 010, and 007.
010 vs 007
This has to do with thickness. The 007 are a little thinner overall and a bit lighter.
Multi-Coated vs Nano Coated
Just different coatings that make some small marginal insignificant difference on some chart somewhere, but having used both lenses for years, the main difference I’ve noticed is the Nano Coated lenses don’t get dirty as easier and are easier to clean. It’s worth it in my opinion.

Adapting Lenses To The Fujifilm GFX 50s
There are some vintage lenses out there that can be adapted to the new Fujifilm G Mount. For those looking to experiment with different focal lengths, this might be a more interesting way to do it.
There are some adapters from LAOWA coming that will work sort of as the opposite of speed boosters, so you can adapt your full frame lenses without the vignetting. I believe they will work for Canon and Nikon lenses.

Fujifilm G-Mount Lens List | Conclusions
As new lenses and adapters rollout, I’ll continue to update this list. It looks a little sparse right now but over the years this list should mature nicely considering the popularity of the GFX camera system.
If you’ve found anything cool and useful that you think should be on this list, leave me some feedback and I’ll update.
