Introduction 84% Overall score Jump to conclusion
The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a very versatile, compact telephoto zoom lens for the company’s APS-C X-mount, arguably filling a much needed gap in the company’s lineup.
The XF 70-300mm offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 105-450mm after accounting for the APS-C sensor size.
Given its far-reaching telephoto, it’s well-suited to sports and nature photographers. Thanks to impressive close-focusing capabilities, it makes for a decent macro lens, too. And that ability to focus up close also means it’s better-suited to portraits with blurred backgrounds than you might otherwise expect, given its not-so-fast aperture. Its high performance, with good sharpness across the frame, lack of chromatic aberrations, fast autofocus, and very effective image stabilization make it a very versatile addition to Fujifilm’s XF lineup.
Available from March 2021, the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR carries a list price of $799.
