Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 OIS Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

May 12th, 2022

Every camera system needs some reasonable options for telephoto reach, and for many full frame platforms, the standard focal lengths are 70-300mm and 100-400mm.  The Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR covers both in a sense, as it carries the standard 70-300mm focal range designation, but since it is designed for Fujifilm’s XF mirrorless system, the 1.5x APS-C crop of the camera system must be applied to every lens.  That gives you (according to Fuji) a full frame equivalent focal range of 107-457mm (Fuji’s crop factor is not perfectly 1.5x).  That’s an intriguing zoom range, covering from this wide at 70mm:

To as tight as this at 300mm:

There’s a whole lot of photography that fits into that zoom range, and when you add to that a very high potential magnification figure of 0.33x, the photo possibilities are pretty much limitless:

Fuji has an unfortunate tendency of making names for their lenses that are essentially a feature list, so we’ll just refer to the lens as the XF70-300 in this review.  But, just in case you don’t “speak Fuji”, here’s what all of that means:

  1. R = Ring, as in aperture ring
  2. LM = Linear Motor, referring to the premium focus system found in the lens
  3. OIS = Optical Image Stabilization
  4. WR = Weather Resistance

All of this adds up to a lens loaded with premium features, so this is a far cry from lenses like Canon’s 55-250mm type lenses that are more budget oriented.  The XF70-300 is a premium product, though the price is a relatively moderated $799 USD.  For that money you are getting a nicely built, versatile lens, though it isn’t a perfect performance.  You can find all my thoughts in either my video or text reviews.

Thanks to Fujifilm Canada for getting me a loaner of the XF 70-300mm.  As always, this is a completely independent review.
