Affordable and Versatile: The Fujifilm 70-300 f/4-5.6 Review

The Fujifilm XF 70-300 f/4-f/5.6 telephoto lens is an absolute powerhouse at a fantastic price.

First, we get an insanely useful telephoto range of 107-457 in full-frame terms. Then, we get 5.5 stops of image stabilization, which helps to shoot landscapes and more in lower light. We also get a linear focus mechanism, allowing for super fast and accurate focusing, and a weather-resistant designation which means it’s perfect for going out in adverse conditions to get the shots that matter to you no matter what’s going on outside. Finally, it works with the teleconverters Fuji has available for purchase as well!

The main aspect of this lens that I enjoy is the versatility of the range.

That means it’s excellent at these types of shots at 70mm:

And then this photograph at 300mm:

You can also add versatility in here by using the amazingly powerful minimum focus distance. It’s fantastic for working with close-up subjects, and while it’s no macro lens, it does have a close-focus distance of just under three feet (2.7 feet to be accurate), which comes up to a 1:3 maximum magnification ratio.

This magnification is AMAZING for a lens like this, and one of the main reasons it’s become a companion for me on my nature walks.

We don’t need to focus on too many specs, however! Just check out this lens in action with these photographs:
