Further benefitting its use outdoors, this 100-400mm lens also sports a weather-sealed construction and fluorine-coated front element to guard against dust and moisture from affecting the lens' performance.

In regards to the optical design, this lens incorporates five extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element, which reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, a nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when working with selective focus techniques.

Long-reaching telephoto zoom is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and offers a 152-609mm equivalent focal length range.
Five extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element are used to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce high clarity and color fidelity throughout the zoom range.
A five stop-effective optical image stabilization system Minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
Twin linear motors deliver quick, quiet, and smooth autofocus performance that is especially beneficial when working with fast-moving subjects.
A focus limiter switch on the side of the lens barrel lets you constrain the focusing range to either the full range of 5.7' to infinity, or from 16.4' to infinity for faster focusing performance with distant subjects.
The lens body incorporates 13 distinct weather seals in 12 locations to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F. Additionally, a fluorine coating has been applied to the front lens element to guard against smudging, moisture, and dust.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
Zoom-lock switch prevents unwanted zoom creep from occurring and also can be used to maintain the same zoom position while shooting.
A removable, rotating tripod collar allows for well-balanced mounting and shooting when working from a tripod or monopod.
The included lens hood incorporates a sliding window to allow easier adjustment of rotating filters, such as a polarizer, while the hood is installed.
Compatible with optional XF 1.4x TC WR and XF 2x TC WR teleconverters.

Gets the job done

It's big, it's heavy and even with a rebate it's expensive but if you need a long telephoto get it. Excellent optics, fast focus and for a lens this size it balances well.

It was very difficult to justify the cost as a mere photography hobbyist, but I'm glad I did (wife may not concur). It is expensive and heavy, but I knew this in advance and didn't want to wait any longer for the 70-300m to be available. I'm very pleased I made the investment. It is a well made lens that exceeded my expectations.

Outstanding!

Wonderful Zoom Lens

By Pete

I have had this lens for several months and I have been delighted with the quality of the images. The zoom mechanism is quick witch gives me the ability to find the subject at 100mm and quickly zoom in to 400mm. This is an expensive lens, but I think it is well worth the price. It is heavier then what I had been using, but I am learning how to best handle it with my Fuji Film XT-4.

So, this makes no sense, but. When I bought this I was "meh", it's barely adequate sharpness wise, I was disappointed, and felt it did not live up to it's red label status. I even called Fujifilm repair and asked if it could be a bad example, and considered sending it in for evaluation. Oh, and after that I dropped it nearly 3' off the dining table, onto an oak floor, attachedto an X-T2, it landed on the lens mount. NO damage or change in function, not even a mark. So enter the pandemic, and I started using it during lockdown on my walks, usually at f7. Amazing images I must say. Not sure why now it is performing so well, almost as if it needed a break in period. Anyway I am very happy with it at all zoom ranges. Mounted to my X-T4 it balances perfectly, yes it is a it heavy, but I can shoot for a couple hours easily. No problem shooting birds in flighthand held at full zoom . Using single point autofocus it's nearly flawless at tracking. However on my older X-T2 it is a different story, so highly recommended to have a later generation camera with it. I have not done a comparison of resolution at different f-stops. But at my usual F7-10, I am amazed how far I can crop and have a great image. No, it is not up to my 90 F2 prime, but for a zoom it is very good. No regrets, and worth packing in my bag despite it's heft.

Big, Heavy, Mediocre IQ

By Baron

I bought a copy of this, waited almost 8 months for delivery, then was shocked at how big and heavy it was. Then, after extensive use for birding, shocked again at the poor image quality wide-open at 400mm - very glowy/hazy. I am a Fujifilm Professional Services member, so I sent it to them asking for a sanity check. They checked it and returned me another copy, noting that the original copy passed resolution tests but they replaced it as a courtesy (kudos; I have had great service from them). The second copy was exactly the same at 400mm, wide open, where it counts most: soft-focus halos around everything bright. I've owned and rented a LOT of other 100-400mm lenses for various formats from Micro Four Thirds to full-frame, and in my view, Fujifilm has released a lemon here, and I doubt it was just bad copies due to the aforementioned experiences. I expected a sharp, light, compact lens; isn't that the sales pitch of APS-C? Instead it's as big and heavy as full-frame 100-400s of similar specs and price, and with worse image quality. I'm baffled. I should note that I'm a huge fan of Fujifilm's lenses in general and own tens of thousands of dollars worth. In my view, they need to redesign this lens, as quickly as possible. As in, it needs to be a really high priority, or it's going to really hurt their reputation. I sold my copy to finance upgrading some of my Micro Four Thirds lenses.

Well worth the wait

I waited a long time for this lens and It was well worth it. I have not had an opportunity to really test it out but the little I have used it I can tell I'm going to love it!
