p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 50mm (equivalent) portrait lens for the GFX?


I have been patiently waiting for years for the GFX to dip into the sub-$2000 range and I finally picked up a 50R. Very excited! I know it's not the latest, but I do still portraits, and have my Z for anything fast-moving.

In my D850 days I loved my ART 50. I'm happiest doing environmental portraits shots, sometimes wide-open without OCF (Octa) or stopped-down with flash. That said, what would people recommend, adapted or native, for a 45-50mm-ish FoV for portraits? The Fuji 63? The body I got will come with the Mitakon 65, but it made be hard for me to do MF -- we shall see.

I wonít hit you up to buy my old lensesÖÖ

The 63 is excellent. The 80 is longer and faster and draws a bit nicer. The 110 is sublime but probably too long for you.

The Sigma Art 85 covers the whole sensor if you want silly shallow.

How does one "outperform" for bokeh? Bokeh is a subjective quality, not a measurable quantity.

If you don't want to adapt lenses the 50f3.5 is small and compact and can be found used for 5-700 on the buy and sell board. The GF35-70 is also on sale at the moment new for $500. I don't have the GF63 but that would be equivalent to 50mm on full frame and they are also on sale new and there's one of the buy and sell board too. The nice thing about mirrorless is you can adapt lenses fairly easily, and the fuji has a few fairly inexpensive native lens options as well.

Iím using a Canon 70-200/4 right now, and aside from a bit of hard vignetting at times (depending on what the IBIS was doing), it performs well. The 70-200 (ď58-160Ē) range is excellent for portraits.

I also just ordered a Nikon 58/1.4 and the Fringer NF-GFX adapter. It should be here next week, and Iím hoping thatíll be my end-all 50mm portrait lens (both on my GFX100S and Z9).

I do have a Minolta 58/1.4 as well, and while itís very soft at f/1.4, it works well at f/2. Itís just manual focus, which is rough for me at 100mpixel!

I think the 63 is one of the most under appreciated lenses out there. I like it and use it a lot. I also use the Nikkor 58G with the Steelsring adapter. That is one of my favourite lenses for 35mm, but works well for more artistic images on the bigger GFX sensor.
