Fujifilm XF70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR
For 2021 Fujifilm introduces the XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR, a high quality telephoto zoom lens for the compact mirrorless X System. This lens combines a lightweight design weighing only 580g with up to 5.5 EV stops of optical image stabilisation. A fast AF linear motor captures subjects in a breeze and comprehensive weather resistance ensures photographers can shoot during any downpour. All together these make for a fast, compact and versatile lens with a focal range equivalent to 107mm - 457mm in full-frame format. These types of telephoto lengths excel at a variety of subjects including sports, action and wildlife photography. The XF 70-300mm also makes for a versatile travel partner, particularly if paired with the XF 16-80mm F/4 R OIS WR. Together these two lenses cover all focal ranges between 24mm and 457mm (in 35mm equivalent) yet weigh just around 1kg between them.
FEATURES AT A GLANCE
Compact and portable telephoto zoom covering a broad telephoto zoom range
Compatible with both Fujinon teleconverters: XF 1.4x TC WR and XF 2.0x TC WR
5.5-stops of optical image stabilisation (OIS) to help reduce camera shake
Fast and near-silent autofocusing with a linear-motor drive system
Excels at close-up photography with 83cm minimum focal distance at 0.33x magnification
High quality results from a design incorporating 17 elements in 12 groups including one aspherical element and two ED elements
FUJIFILM XF 70-300MM F/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR LENS IN MORE DETAIL
HIGH QUALITY OPTICS IN A LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT DESIGN
Despite weighing just 580g at a length of 132.5mm the XF 70-300 f/4-5.6 combines 17 glass elements into 12 groups. These include one aspherical element and two ED elements which serve to deliver high quality results throughout the entire range.
With either teleconverter attached, phase detection AF continues to work with no reduction in performance. When the XF 2X TC WR is attached maximum zoom reaches an equivalent of 914mm with only two stops of light loss. With the XF 1.4X TC WR the lens provides a 35mm equivalent of 630mm with one less stop loss. These are incredibly long focal ranges which will appeal to photographers who shoot extremely distant subjects.
Using the XF 2X TC WR also extends close-up capabilities to 1:1 magnification (0.66x) enabling yet more creative expression.
FAST, SILENT AF DRIVE
The use of a linear-motor drive system facilitates fast and near silent autofocusing, which allows the lens to fully leverage advanced AF systems found in X Series cameras. Face and Eye detect systems work seamlessly with the lens, particularly when paired with cameras such as the Fujifilm X-E4.
POWERFUL IMAGE STABILISATION
5.5-stops of optical image stabilisation (OIS) help to reduce the effects of camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths. The lens’s OIS capabilities are further extended when combined with in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) systems found in the X-T4 or X-S10. This adds five-axis stabilisation, which also helps to reduce linear shift shake with sharper results when hand-holding.
