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.

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.

Chiaro Pro 77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

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.

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!

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.

Wonderful Zoom Lens

By Pete
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-28

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.

Very nice lens

By Grant
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-06

I bought the Fujifilm XF 100-400 mm lens for use with my XT-3 camera and I've been very happy with the combination in the four outings I've had since the lens arrived. The lens feels solid and well built; there is no zoom creep at all when held vertically even when unlocked. Images have been crisp with good resolution even at 400 mm and color rendition is good. Focus speed has been very acceptable in both single and continuous fashion. Obviously, the lens is larger and heavier than average but I come from old 35 mm film photography and if you consider that the equivalent full frame zoom range is 150 - 600 mm the size and weight are not bad at all. Heavy to carry around your neck all day, yes, but not bad at all in an appropriate photo back pack. The lens stabilization has allowed me to get sharp hand held photos at speeds of 1/60th of a second pretty reliably. It's been a nice addition not only for wildlife but also for landscapes with a unique perspective.

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.

Asked by: J
As a 40 Year Professional, I can tell you that I would not tolerate a lens that wasn't sharp. Don't worry about the Fuji Lenses, especially the 100-400mm. If the shots are out of focus, its not the lens.
