Macro for Fuji Shooters: A Review of the XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens

A good macro lens can be one of the most versatile lenses in your bag, offering not only the ability to take extreme close-up images with high levels of detail, but also portraits at a flattering focal length and with high levels of sharpness. For Fuji shooters, there is the XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens, and this excellent video review shows what you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this fantastic video review takes a look at the Fuji XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens. The XF 80mm f/2.8 features the following:

  • 9.8" minimum minimum focusing distance (1:1 magnification ratio)
  • Four extra-low dispersion elements (including one Super ED element) for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • One aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Super EBC coating for reduced flares and ghosting and improved contrast
  • Floating Focus System for faster autofocus performance
  • Linear autofocus motor with nearly silent performance for video work
  • Focus range limiter with three ranges for quicker performance
  • Optical image stabilization with up to five stops of compensation
  • Weather-sealed body 
  • Fluorine coating to protect against finger oils and smudges
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

The highest fidelity lens I've ever used. Almost on a different level.

At US1,200 it better be excellent.

The 30mm Panasonic LUMIX G macro delivers excellent images with greater depth of field and includes OIS for 1/3 the price.
