23 Feb XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6R LM OIS WR – The Newcomer

Source: Fuji X Passion

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Keitaro So, Divisional Head of Fujifilm for providing the loan for X-E4, XF27mm R WR and XF70-300mm R OIS WR. These units were loaned from Fujifilm Asia Pacific and returned to them. All the shots shown here were taken by me, and some shots were edited with minor adjustments inside the X-E4.

Secondly, I would like to thank Bobby Tonelli (@btonelli), Syen Lim (@syen.lim) and Yi Xuen for helping out to test this lens.

Prelude
XF50-140mm, XF100-400mm, XF55-200mm, XC50-230mm and now the XF70-300mm. The 5th telephoto zoom lens in the current Fujifilm lens line up and the newest in the family.

It was announced on 27 January 2021, launching together with the GFX 100S, GF 80mm F1.7, X-E4 and XF27mm R WR. To be frank, I was not surprised as it was already announced under development back on 15 October 2020 Fujifilm X Summit! In short, I was prepared for its arrival.

When I first held this pre-production lens, I was amazed by the size. It is very compact and reasonably weighted. But there are some questions in my head, why does Fujifilm release this lens with overlapping of focal length between the XF55-200mm and XF100-400mm? Who is the target audience, and what is its position in this category? This review is based on my own opinions to answer them.
