Having added the GFX 50R to the 50S, I wanted some (physically) smaller lenses to see if it could be something of a street shooting camera. Having ordered the Kipon EF to GFX smart adapter in order to try the Canon 24mm tilt-shift, I saw this 40mm pancake recommended for use on GFX bodies and decided to give it a go.
It does indeed have good sensor coverage and provides about as low a profile as you’re ever going to get with the 50R. Autofocus on the Kipon adapter is a little slow for reactive street shooting but sharpness is good and it’s a fun lens on the 50R.
Here’s a sample image taken with the Canon EF 40mm F2.8 STM:
