06 Sep Fujinon 2x Converter Revisited in Mexico | Jeff Carter

Last May I did a review of the Fujinon 2x converter that I had been testing for Fujifilm.  My conclusions were that while the converter was a good fit with the XF50-140mm f2.8, the combination of the 2x and the XF100-400mm lens was a bit more of a considered purchase because of the limitations in use.  CLICK HERE to read the review.
