FUJIFILM XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Overview

  • 1Description

Well suited to outdoor, nature, and sports photographers, the FUJIFILM XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit from B&H bundles the versatile telephoto zoom with a 77mm circular polarizer filter.

  • FUJIFILM XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens

    A long-reaching zoom optimized for use in harsh climates, the XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens is designed for FUJIFILM X-series mirrorless cameras and provides a 152-609mm equivalent focal length range. Ideally suited for wildlife and sports applications, the versatile telephoto range benefits photographing distant, moving subjects, and is reinforced by a twin linear AF motor for fast performance, as well as five stop-effective optical image stabilization to Minimize the appearance of camera shake. 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.

  • Hoya 77mm NXT Plus Circular Polarizer Filter

    The 77mm NXT Plus Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges and filters this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

    A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

    This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity as well as color fidelity and features an aluminum-alloy filter ring that can be rotated in order to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes five layers of anti-reflection coating. An additional hydrophobic coating results in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

    Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
    Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
    Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
    1.7x filter factor reduces exposure by 0.8 stop.
    Multicoated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing an improved beading effect with water for more efficient cleaning.
    Aluminum-alloy filter ring for durability while remaining lightweight.
    Filter ring can be rotated to adjust the intensity of the polarization effect.
    77mm front filter threads allow for use with other filters.
    Top knurling to provide a more textured grip when mounting or removing it from a lens.
    Constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity.
    Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

FUJIFILM XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Reviews

XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this Fujifilm lens! Let me start by saying that I mainly photograph wildlife including birds in flight. I had been wanting to switch to the Fujifilm mirrorless system but kept doubting that this lens on the X-T2 would compare to my Canon birding setup. I did a lot of research and it seemed that once I learned all of the AF focus settings and which ones worked best for me, it would work fine. I planned going to hold on to my Canon setup for birding only for 3-6 months...but after a week in the field with the 100-400mm + 1.4TC on my X-T2 I was ready to sell my Canon. It's lighter and quite fast focusing even when using with the TC. Super happy with my decision!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens - Equals SONY a7II w Tamron 150-600 Just got this Fuji 100-400. Put it on my Fuji X-T1. I have test shots I do with all my gear. Houses about 0.8 mile away across river. And compare to other shot of contrasty sand, water, dark vegetation on island about 200 meters. Often with birds on sand. After updating firmware, the 100/400 on X-T1 was at least equal to SONY A7II with Tamron 150-600. Both RAW and JPEG. Fuji pulled better JPEGS on some shots. Tamron is a bear to handle in the wind. Fuji 100-400 on X-T1 barely noticed the wind. I am very, very happy. I travel all the time and I just found a new long-shot travel combo in the Fuji. SONY A7II will max out at 70-200.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quick to focus. I am satisfied with the overall quality of my Fujifilm XF 100-400 lens. It is, however, not quick to focus on auto focus so that subjects that change position quickly, like birds, can be a challenge. I hand hold my camera rather than use a tripod and still manage to get pretty sharp images. I am pleased with the sharpness when the lens manages to focus properly. I compared my Fuji mirrorless system with a photo companion's full frame system and the Fujifilm mirrorless system is definitely as good. My lens at the 400mm focal length took as good an image as the full frame 400 mm lens. Just wished the auto focus accurately targeted the subject faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lens I'm very glad I bought this XF 100-400 lens for my Fuji X-Pro2. It's sharp, relatively easy to hand hold, and is very sharp. The OIS feature really does allow you to hand hold at shutter speeds where you'd normally want to use a monopod or tripod. The zoom ring is somewhat firm, so you do have to exert some pressure, but that beats having your zoom setting suddenly slide because it's loose. The 1.4x Teleconverter Kit is excellent, too. I'm tempted to buy the 2x Teleconverter based on this setup. I'm looking forward to some bird photography late summer with this lens (I have a Nikon D810 plus the 200-500 and 80-400, which are heavier than this combo).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Just received this lens today. By the time I got home from work to test it out it was getting dark and was cloudy. Set my x-pro 2 to 3200 asa and shot some test shots hand held with the lens wide open. I thought to myself these will be little blurry as the shutter speed was around 160 . I was blown away how sharp the images were!! Lens is quiet and focuses very fast and accurate on the x pro 2. I also shoot Canon and have a lot of L glass. MY favorite Canon zoom is 70-200L and this lens is much sharper and lighter(or at least better balanced) than my Canon. I will probably be selling my Canon gear as I am thrilled with my Fuji X pro 2 and new lens. Next I will have to test it with action shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No wonder its Fuji I have had to go lighter with my equipment due to paralysis and left the Nikon word for Fuji. I compared the results I get with the Nikon 810 with the 200-500 mm lens with the Fuji XT2 and the 100-400mm lens. I had trouble telling which camera took which picture. Picture subject consisted of herons and egrets that were about 100 feet away from me. Feather detail etc was sharp in both cases. I will admit the D810 had a slight edge in detail i.e. 24 vs 36 megapixels-- but when pixel difference was balanced out - no real difference. Perhaps it is my prejudice but I liked the color detail of the Fuji more - there was a cleaner color/tone definition. It is an excellent lens - PS I also used the 2extender with it - produced great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge price. Huge range. Huge weight. Killer OIS. Being on the viewfinder end of an APS-C sporting a 600mm equivalent end of range can be dizzying in handheld, especially when carrying a 2lb+ lens. I truly have no idea how the pro birder photogs do it. But what I got this beast for is for pics to flatten out the landscape perspective (picture attached to show what I mean)., and in that regard this lens is utterly superb. Also, I shot handheld 95% of the time, and that OIS made the aforementioned virtual 150mm-600mm view very easy to frame This is a wonderful specialty lens and if you're a big guy like me, the weight is no issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Was heading out for a wildlife photo trip and the lens arrived just in time. The range of 100-400 allowed for the right capture at the right time. Sharp as expected from Fuji. Focus was responsive and hit most of the time (always a challenge in the woods with lots of items to interfere) Balanced and was comfortable to hold and carry for 3 full days. Weather sealing came into play with light rain for a day. Image stabilization worked as advertised. Very happy with the lens. Did not try the 1.4X with it on this trip. Plan to try it out when appropriate.

Is their a difference of image quality between using the 1.4 extender or the 2x extender.? Also how much light loss in each extender?
Asked by: Barbara E.
Using the 1.4x teleconverter with this lens would reduce the maximum aperture by nearly 1 1/2 stops. With the 2x teleconverter, you would lose 2 stops. The image quality would be better on the 1.4x teleconverter as you would lose less light.

how would this lens on a Fuji X-T1 compare to a Tamron 150-600 G1 on a Canon 6D. Which would have the better image quality? RegardsKelvin
Asked by: Kelvin
It would be the Fuji lens, IMHO. I had the Tamron lens for awhile, using it on a 7DMkII and I found the images soft. If you want the reach with the 6D, try the Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 II with a 1.4x tc.
