We’re at the Photo Plus Expo show in New York, where Fujifilm is showing off its new XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR and GF 45mm F2.8 R WR prime lenses.
First up is the snappily-named XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR. It’s equivalent to a 122mm prime on X-series bodies, and as you can see, it’s a big lens. It also fills an appropriately big gap in Fujifilm’s historical lens lineup, being the first of Fuji’s X-mount lenses to give full 1:1 macro reproduction.
As usual for Fujifilm’s current lenses, the 80mm offers the option of manual aperture control via a dedicated dial, and a large focusing ring provides very fine control over focus, if required.
The XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR is optically stabilized, and is rated to provide around 5 stops of correction. This should help greatly in the macro focusing range, as well as making the lens more usable in general, in lower lighting conditions.
