Covering short- to medium-telephoto focal lengths, the black XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II from FUJIFILM is a 76-350mm-equivalent zoom suitable for working with a range of distance subjects, from portraits to sports. Its optical design includes one aspherical element and one extra-low dispersion element, which help to reduce a variety of aberrations in order to produce a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. A Super EBC coating has also been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Complementing the optical design is a 3.5 stop-effective image stabilization system, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to benefit shooting handheld. Additionally, a stepping AF motor provides fast and quiet focusing performance and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

FUJIFILM XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II Reviews
In the right conditions, the results from this lens are very impressive. I assumed cropping with this lens would be problematic, but you can see the crop of the azalea (shot @230mm) shows plenty of detail. The mason jar shot was a test of the OIS. It's also @ 230mm, but at 1/20 sec. It's not exactly crisp, I would have trouble getting something that sharp at 1/20 sec with a 50mm without OIS. I would estimate the OIS gains 2-3 stops. It's obviously not as sharp as the XF zooms, but it does have one advantage: weight. This a lens I can easily carry around.
Not pro but great lens, great image quality, OIS works fine, inexpensive, go get the 70-300, but this focal is perfect for daylight work.
Great lens for the best price!
I was looking for an affordable telephoto lens for my x-s10 and read many reviews about this one, no one said it was a bad lens, so i bought it. it is light, small and for use at daylight, perfect!, does not have aperture ring but it's ok. I was looking for the 70-300 but it's pricey so i got this. for not professional use it's great!
A Good Bargain
This is a decently sharp telephoto lens. The autofocus is rather slow and I find myself manually focusing most often, but the results with my landscapes and bird photos are satisfying.
Very sharp, very light. Excellent for the money.
Great Lens Priced Right
Been planning on this purchase for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. Exceeds expectations go ahead and get one, you’ll be glad you did.
Did the job but isn't built for pro use
Usually shoot primes but I had to pick this up for a specific job and had some fun with it. Images aren't great to be honest, but they're passable. Contrast isn't very good and it's not as sharp as others. Sealing is terrible. Mine has dirt in it already. But hey, it's $400 and the range is crazy good. Image stabilization is great. It's the best zoom lens you can get without spending a grand. If you're using it purely for utility, it's great.
I like the silver finish. Light lens, important for me for this focal length. Doesn't bother me if it's plastic, it is sturdy, good quality!
