FUJINON XF80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens features a focal length equivalent to 122mm (on a 35mm format), a maximum aperture of F2.8, and 1.0x magnification factor, a first in the X Series interchangeable lens range. By achieving high resolving power at the focus point and beautiful bokeh, this lens is optimal for shooting flowers and nature photos. Combine this lens with Fujifilm's unique Film Simulation such as Velvia, for truly stunning close up images.
This lens supports hand-held shooting thanks to the Optical Image Stabilizer system suppressing shift shake. The lens also provides a fast and silent Auto Focus system by adopting linear motors. The exterior design is luxurious yet robust. The aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use. The lens is also weather and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, so it is suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt, further improving the toughness of the lens.
High resolving power and beautiful bokeh
An optical construction of 16 elements in 12 groups, including one aspherical lens, one Super ED lens, and three ED lenses has been adopted. Chromatic aberrations are suppressed by arranging the ED lenses in a well-balanced position and spherical aberrations are suppressed thanks to the aspherical lens, securing high resolution performance.
Beautiful macro image thanks to newly adopted AF system
Adopts Floating Focus System, divides focus lens group into "Front Focus Group" and "Rear Focus Group" and drives them depending on the shooting distance with high accuracy. This system leads to high resolution when shooting macro, where the aberrations become easily noticeable.
A newly developed "Ball Slide System" controls lens movement by arranging ceramic balls along the guide rail. This system makes it possible to achieve high image quality from the center to the edge by suppressing any inclination of the two focus lens groups and keep its clearance with high accuracy.
The focus lens groups move within the lens barrel meaning that the length of the lens does not change. Therefore there is no need to worry about accidentally touching the object you are shooting.
OIS suppressing shift shake
The lens has adopted the Optical Image Stabilization system to suppress shift shake, which can have a larger impact when shooting macro. Angle shake and shift shake is suppressed by using a gyro sensor and an acceleration sensor with high accuracy, which achieves 5-stop image stabilization (CIPA guidelines).
Fast and quiet AF
The focus lens is driven by a linear motor which is both quiet and quick, achieving fast and silent AF.
Weather and Dust resistant, -10°C low-temperature operation with fluorine coating
The lens features 11 weather and dust resistant seals, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments. The fluorine coating, which has been applied to front lens elements, is water repellent, less susceptible to smudges and is easily cleaned.
Compatible with the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters
The lens offers compatibility with the 1.4x Teleconverter (XF1.4X TC WR) and 2.0x Teleconverter (XF2X TC WR), so it can be used as telephoto macro lens.
