Fujifilm has added a sixth lens for its digital GFX medium format system. The Fujinon f/2.8 GF45mm R WR, which provides for a 36mm field of view when thought of in terms of full-frame 35mm, weighs about 17 ounces (490 grams).

Fujifilm says the GF45mm is a good choice for street photography and documentary work.

The lens has 11 elements in eight groups and includes one aspherical element and two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses. There are nine aperture blades.

Even as many lens makers are shifting their efforts to more exotic lenses, along comes Zeiss with a 35mm lens.

In this day, a 35mm wide-angle lens is often met with a collective ho-hum. Does photography need another 35mm lens? Does Zeiss need another 35mm lens when it already has a Milvus f/2.0 in that focal length?

In its press release, Canon specifically describes the SX730 HS as “a great transitional camera for those looking to use something other or move from a smartphone.”
