Fujifilm 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 overview

  • 1Description

Covering portrait-length to telephoto focal lengths, the black XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II Lens from Fujifilm provides a 76-350mm equivalent focal length range and is designed for use on their APS-C-format X-series mirrorless digital cameras. The extensive telephoto zoom range is complemented by optical image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to render sharper imagery at longer focal lengths. Additionally, this lens also features a precision stepping AF motor that delivers smooth, near-silent focus performance to benefit both still and movie recording applications.

The optical design of the lens features one aspherical element and one extra-low dispersion element to help minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range for clearer, more color-accurate results.

Telephoto zoom lens provides a 76-350mm equivalent focal length range, making it suitable for portrait applications and distant subjects.
Optical image stabilization works to reduce the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops to suit working in low-light conditions throughout the zoom range.
High-speed precision stepping autofocus motor offers smooth, precise, and quiet focusing performance to benefit stills and video recording.
One aspherical element and one extra-low dispersion element minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and contribute to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. The aperture range is divided into 1/3 EV steps, with 17 steps total throughout the aperture range.

    Fujifilm 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 reviews

    XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II Lens (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Zoom This is a nice compact zoom that works really well on the Fuji X-T1! It's easy to take just about everywhere and produces extremely sharp images! Focus can be slow on really distant subjects without much contrast (haze, back-lit clouds, far away mountains, etc) but in most conditions it performs really well! I took it out on a sunrise whale watching tour and was able to create some stunning photos that really tested the limits of this lenses capabilities. Bumping up the ISO a few stops 400-600 was plenty to keep the shutter speed high and reduce any camera shake from fast movements and subject acquisition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the great unsung heroes of the Fujinon lens lineup At this price, you should be happy to get a mediocre telephoto beginner lens. You get so much more than that! Sure, the construction is all plastic, including, unfortunately, the mount. But that makes this lens lightweight and easy to carry even on a spontaneous excursion, maybe in combination with a shorter, sturdier one. The zoom extends outwardly, which means it stretches out to a slightly laughable 7 overall length. But it's so much sharper than you'd expect, really pretty fast in focussing (especially with the latest firmware updates for lens and camera installed), and has an amazing reach. At 230mm, you'll regret every espresso you ever drank ... shake-o-rama. Pack a monopod. From 50mm to ca. 90mm, you know what? You're getting a surprisingly useable portrait lens. Bokeh, shmokeh, it's not in the same class as Fuji's 56mm, duh. I love humble, simple things that do what they're supposed to, don't cost an arm and a leg, and remind you that it's always the shot that counts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bargain at any price! When I saw the low price on this lens, I figured that it was another piece of rubbish like the Rokinon 300mm. However, someone gave it a decent rating and I took a chance. Now, each time I use the lens, I can't believe how good it is! I'm using the Fujifilm XC 50-230mm lens at a daytime shutter speed set at 1/500th sec and letting the ISO automatically wander up to ISO 1600, but most shots were under ISO 800 even on an overcast day. All shots were hand-held. Image Quality - Overall, Image Quality is there! Building and sign edges are generally sharp right out of the camera. The eyes of birds and squirrels are sharp. Detail is evident in the feathers of birds. Exposure - under overcast skies, photos tend to be a bit dark, but improve with the EV adjustment. Saturation - excellent, as can be expected with a Fuji equipment! Handling - quite good, the lens is much lighter than I thought it would be. It balances well with even a small Fuji camera. The zoom ring and the manual focus ring are smooth, up to Fuji standards and easy to use. Oddly, there is NO aperture ring. Focusing - quick, I didn't experience any delays. Low burst mode shots stayed crisp and on focus. Night Shots - I shot outdoor Christmas decorations (hand-held) as long as 1/5 sec at ISO 800-1600. I was blown away! Night photos have good sharpness and detail. Setting ISO to a maximum of ISO1600 gave great results; if you don't set an upper limit and use auto ISO, the camera will shoot as high as ISO 3200 which still produced good results, but I preferred ISO 1600. Comparison #1- Rokinon (Samyang) Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Lens - the Rokinon lens is utter GARBAGE. All photos, even in sunlight, are disappointingly soft. Comparison #2 - Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens (on a micro 4/3 system) - a much more expensive lens - it's better than the Rokinon lens but still images were soft and disappointing, and nowhere as sharp as the Fuji lens (even factoring in the bigger sensor on the Fuji). Recommendation - Buy it! I kept mine. This lens produces good photos at a long focal length at a ridiculously low price. Someone said that the lens is good for the price. I say, the lens is good - period! I wish that B&H allowed us to upload more than 2 photos - I would like to say in photos what I was trying to say in words. Both attached photos were cropped but NOT further edited - Canada Goose 1/500 sec, f/6.7, ISO 800, EV +0.67 @ a distance of 65 feet, overcast sky - Frosty 1/8 sec, f/5.8, ISO 1600, EV 0 (handheld!) @ a distance of 50 feet, nighttime

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than expected! Nice compact lens with handy focal length that is quite sharp. Good clarity, color and contrast. Fast focus and accurate. Some say this is a good lens for the money but I say it's just a good lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changes the feel of the Fuji XE-1 with this lens mounted I have the faster & heavier Fuji XF 55-200 for more critical situations, but now can look forward to conveniently carrying a lightweight zoom matched to the camera's size, and with a longer zoom yet. I haven't done tests against the other, but the sharpness is fine, especially considering the price. Select the smallest focusing rectangle for pinpoint focusing accuracy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific bargain telephoto lens from Fujifilm This lens is often unfairly underrated among the Fuji lineup, yet it's a very useful tool for anyone who is interested in reducing weight of their photo bag. It reminds me of the old Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR DX AF-S ED: lightweight, sharp and definitely not overpriced. The lens balances well on the X-T20. The center of the picture is pretty sharp even an the widest aperture, and at f/8 it's sharp all over to corners. The lens nicely renders colors. One strange effect of this lens though - the photos come out somewhat darker than when using XF 18-55. Knowing that I usually ramp a bit up exposure compensation. Works like a charm. Focusing speed is not the best in the world (especially when it gets darker) if you're trying to focus on the subject lacking contrast boundaries. I would not use this lens to capture birds in flight or the dogs running around. But for landscapes it's just terrific. And at daylight this lens produces nice portraits. Of course one's got to be careful handling the lens because of its plastic mounting plate. But I am habitually pretty careful with all my lenses, and so far they serve me well. I would absolutely recommend this lens to my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with Fujifilm mirrorless lenses I purchased this lens before a safari, not having a longer lens to capture close up shots. I'm very new to photography, but for the price, the quality cannot be beat. I was very happy with how my photos turned out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens For a cheap lens it is great. Yesterday I was out taking photo of eagles and I could believe the photo I got. This is a very good lens for the money.
