Additionally, a floating elements system is employed for consistent sharpness throughout the focusing range, and a linear AF motor provides fast and quiet focusing performance.

Benefitting handheld shooting, Optical Image Stabilization Minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when working with slower shutter speeds. A focus range limiter switch is also available, to constrain the focusing to a 1.5' to 3' range, a 3' to infinity range, or the full focusing range. A fluorine coating has also been added to the front element to repel moisture and the lens also features a dust-, freeze-, and weather-resistant construction for use in inclement conditions. Additionally, a manual aperture ring is featured for intuitive, tactile adjustment over exposure settings, and a Command position can also be set for camera-based control over the aperture.

FUJIFILM GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR Reviews

Not quite 1:2 and AF issues

By JAKE
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-02

The image quality from this lens is wonderful. But in terms of Macro applications I was disappointed. I couldn't ever get to a 50% reproduction of 1:2. I could get close, but not all the way. Also the auto focus craps out well before MFD. This can happen with other lenses but not at this level. MFD is 17.71 which I can achieve with manual focus but the AF craps out at just under 30.

This is not a macro lens

If you find more technical tests online for this lens, you will be enamored by how perfect it is. Sharp corner to corner even wide open. Amazing bokeh, etc. All of this is true. But this is not a macro lens. If you try to use it at the minimum close distance, you will see that outside a tiny patch in the middle, it is quite soft and downright awful in the corners, at all apertures. So if you are looking to take photos of small flat objects (like digitizing film with a camera) you will be much better served by APS-C or full frame true 1:1 macro lenses. By the way, adding an extension tube does not help, it only makes it worse. This lens is not optimized for close focus, but it is marvelous for subjects from 6 feet to infinity.

Spectacular lens

I recently used this lens for macro photography and was literally blown away by the result. No camera can produce the images I saw without a lens that is as good or better than the 100mb sensor. The pollen could be seen on a bee's legs as individual specs. It does not get any sharper or better than this lens.

Good Lens

Using with GFX 100. This doesn't disappoint. Easy handling. Sharp edge to edge from f/5.6 through f/22 (with very little refraction loss up to f/22 but noticeable beyond that); little to no distortion; excellent color rendition. Even without the 45mm extension, it gets close enough for most product work detail shots. It's a bit too sharp/contrasty for portraiture work (whereas the 110 f/2 is magnificent). This has already become my most used lens. If only the hood was a bit shorter.

Excellent Macro/ short telephoto

With the onset of lockdown, I had decided to do some macrophotography with my GFX100. This lens is extremely sharp, and together with the MCEX-45 provides my sought after 1:1 magnification. Its exceptional OIS is an added bonus that I've found useful when using it as a short telephoto lens.

Nearly perfect...

First, when the lens arrives realize that it is 1:2 and not 1:1 so you'll not be able to get really close to the subject. In order to achieve this you'll need the Fuji extension tube so focus distance is about 1.5-2 feet away from the subject. Secondly, the lens internal mechanism shifts and moves when not on the camera and powered up. This is normal but it unfortunately is not disclosed so I assumed it was broken as I have never had a lens behave in this manner. The mechanism will shift inside and you can feel the movement. Thirdly, the lens is noisy. It will be constantly whining and making noises. The internal mechanisms are continuously running and you can hear the motors. These aren't necessarily bad things, just things you should know out of the box that is pretty obscurely hidden on the internet. However, the images are spectacular. Sharp edge to edge and the focus mechanism is reasonably fast. It performs consistent to slightly better than the 45mm in this regard. It is heavy but IMO a fabulous lens for macro work and portraiture. This and the 45mm can satisfy all my needs in a variety of venues.

Lovely results. Works well with the 100S stabilization together. Wish Fuji made a 63mm macro. You won't regret this purchase.

Love it - The sharpest lens I've ever used

I shoot small items and frequently take macro/very close shots. This lens produces mesmerizing images, can't rate it highly enough. Paired with the 100s, it's a dream to use imo - sharp glass, well built. Of course it's not true macro, but I have no complaints on the results

There has been no reports that we know of any focus breathing with this lens. Being a telephoto prime we would expect very little anyway.

How close can it focus? The lens and manual say .45m but I can get in focus much closer. What am I missing? thanks.
Asked by: Peter
The minimum focus distance is measured from the focal plane or sensor, not from the front of the lens. Hence, the minimum focusing distance would be from this plane to whatever you are focusing on.

I want to use this lens to digitize 8x10 negatives on a copy stand with light source from below. Will the lens allow the image of the 8x10 film to fit the GFX 50R viewfinder at a copy stand height of 32 inches or less? Thanks.
Asked by: Bill
FUJIFILM GF 120mm f/4 Macro R LM OIS WR Lens has an angle of view of 25.7 degrees. If you use trigonometry and calculate for a distance of 32 inches you can take a photo of an item that is 14.6 inches in size. So an 8x10 film will fit.

question

Should I be able to detect something shifting back and forth inside the lens if I tilt it up and down?
Asked by: David B.
Not to worry. Many of the Fujifilm optics have components that move freely inside until the power comes on. As soon as camera turns on, that goes away.
