Product Highlights
  • Fujifilm X-mount Lens
  • Macro Lens That Focuses to 10.5"
  • Equivalent to 90mm Short Telephoto Lens
  • Aspherical and ED Elements
  • Super EBC Lens Coating

Designed specifically for the Fujifilm X-series of interchangeable lens cameras with APS-C sensors, this Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4 XF Macro Lens is a short telephoto lens equivalent to 90mm in 35mm format. The fast, bright f/2.4 maximum aperture makes shooting in low light possible, and provides pleasing bokeh (the out-of-focus portion of a photo) with its 9-blade aperture design--ideal for dramatic portraits.

To take advantage of the X-series cameras' mirrorless design, the rear element of the lens is as close as possible to the sensor, minimizing the back focus distance appreciably. The lens construction includes a metal barrel, Super EBC coating for improved optical performance, and it delivers improved center-to-edge resolution and brightness free from chromatic aberration. This macro lens has a maximum magnification of 0.5x, and the aperture ring has 1/3-stop click stops for more precise exposures.

      Fairly new to the Fuji mirror less X-format, I had been eyeing the new 56mm f1.2 lens. But since I already own the very fast 23mm lens, I couldn't get myself to spend almost $ for another fast lens. The 60mm f2.4 turns out to be a great alternative and with the 4250 instant rebate, it's just a deal that you can't let go.And I couldn't be happier with that decision. To be honest, I don't see how you can make portraits with the 56mm wide open, the DOF will be just too thin!Even the 60mm wide open (at f2.4) gives a really shallow DOF, accompanied with an amazing boket! If you're budget conscious, don't hesitate to get this fabulous portrait lens.

      I must agree with the reviews - the lens is very slow to autofocus (especially at macro distance, but also in good light at portrait distance). It is also rather minimal in terms of features: Only 1:2 magnification and no focus limiter. The manual focus takes a lot of time in macro mode because you need to move the focus ring a lot to get focus changes. Of course to a degree that necessary for macro, but its less of a problem on other macro lenses.

      But now to the good aspects: Image quality is great, very sharp across the frame starting at f2.4. Also, it is nice to have f2.4, while most other macro lenses start at f2.8 or more. I like how fuji puts a high priority on squeezing out a little more aperture out of most lenses.

      With the current deal, the lens is just $400, that is a good price I'd say. The usual $650 is too steep in my opinion for what this lens offers.

        Comments about Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4 XF Macro Lens:

        I read a great deal about how slow the lens focuses. While not a DSLR speed demon, it was quite fast. B&H's exemplary customer support and return policy gave me the confidence to purchase it but it is a keeper. Bitingly sharp from wide open til diffraction.

        2.4 may not meet some folks narrow depth of field requirements but I found it sufficient for my needs YMMV on that.

        Highly recommended.

          Just bought it, and I'm still getting used to it. But gave me nice first shots, although I believe it might get better, specially with the focus. Great results, and a very lightweight piece.

            This is a great value especially if you can get it with the instant rebate. The lens is tack sharp and great for portraits. It's not super fast at focusing and only offers a 1:2 magnification ratio, but I don't think there are any x-mount 1:1 macro lenses. Construction is very good with a nice wide focus ring for fine-tuning.

              Comments about Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4 XF Macro Lens:

              With the lens and my Fuji-X camera both updated with the latest firmware, the lens focuses much faster and more accurately for me. It is not the fastest focusing lens in the X line up but it now works just fine for my uses. The bokeh is nice and pleasing to the eye. While focusing the lens makes a little more noise than some of the other X lenses but it is not obnoxiously loud. Some of my high-end Nikon lenses make more noise. The macro is decent. Sharp lens. Small and light. I can carry it in my coat pocket and not know it is there. Before the firmware update I was looking for another solution for a portrait lens. So I am no longer tempted to buy the 56mm 1.2 right now for portraits. Maybe next year! ;)

              So far I have used this lens for some macro work. The build quality and image quality is superb. I find the focus to be very frustrating. It really hunts for the focus point most of the times. As other people have mentioned it often focus' all the way out and back in before focusing. I never have this issue with the 35 mm or 18 mm. Overall, its about the image quality so I'll work with it, and maybe I gets used to the frustrating focus.

                Comments about Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4 XF Macro Lens:

                This lens is great except for focus speed. It struggles in low light, and works better in OVF than EVF mode on my X-Pro1. The firmware update helped a lot, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to hold on to this once the new 56mm is available.

                Sharp as hell, but slow to focus.

                    A great medium telephoto as well as a sharp closeup lens. The lens is small and light weight for its focal length. It's well made and relatively quick to focus. Wish it would focus a little closer.

                        Can be as close as 26.7 cm (10.5") but offers greater focus range with 0.5x max. magnification -- perfect for me and maybe you. Auto-focus is good, but you'll probably use manual focus, which is easy given the large focus ring. Aperture ring has 1/3rd stop easy detents. And, with f/2.4 it's fast. Who else than Fuji offers such a range of top quality optics?

                              I use the lens for closeups of flowers in the garden and in the wild. Auto focus works well and it is easy to focus manually when needed.

                                  The autofocus on the Fuji XE-1 is slow enough as it is, and out of all the lenses I've tried (18-55, 14, 35, 60), this is by far the slowest. I had a hard time judging whether it could not focus because the AF was just bad, or I was within the min focus distance. In either case, I really could not get all that close.

                                    I've had several shoots now with this lens. One outdoor, and one indoor. While the lens is a beautiful piece of glass, well built and sturdy, it is extremely slow to focus. Once it does grab on though it is tack sharp and looks fantastic. Being in somewhat low light situations also makes the focus issue worse-make ( make sure you have modeling lights ). Bottom line: good lens? yes. but don't try to shoot fast moving objects (like children) with it, and don't try to shoot in low light with it. the depth of field at 2.4 is great and makes wonderful images when you use it in the right situation.

                                    I make my living shooting D4's, but there are times when the whole Nikon thing is too much..big, loud, etc..
                                    The 60 on the xe-1 gets you in and out fast..and quiet..
