Non-Technical Review

Still discovering the virtues of this little lens. It hits a sweet spot in terms of versatility between the FFEq. of 35mm and 50mm. So, as a travel lens it is ideal and the compromises are minor, in terms of only needing to carry one lens instead of two. For those who are somewhat addicted to one focal length (e.g., 35mm FFEq comes very natural for me), it might take a little adjustment but not much as I find the feel of this length a bit like a soft, made-to-measure glove. It is a lot of fun in terms of handling and ergonomics and quickly begins to feel very familiar. The ability to go to the edge of wideness and still be able to close-up for a portrait is fantastic. It is incredibly quick and sharp, and shooting macro 1x:1 is a gas: I'm loving the visual effect of its shallow DoF. As I said, this is not a technical review but to my eyes, the rendering of this lens is alluring. Its presence on the camera and functionality make this what I would call an extremely agile lens. If I found myself in a deserted island with only one lens, I should wish it was this one. It is well-built, and I appreciate the auto-aperture locking switch. I do wish Fuji had made firmer detents for the aperture ring as it is easy to shift the stop inadvertently with a slight bump. OTH the softness of its mechanism feel like driving a European sports car. The lens cap is sh . . .t but that is a minor thing, and easily replaced by one not so easily bumped off. The price-point makes this lens a top-tier value. Because of its light weight and size, it is a lens destined to be always in my bag.

Outstanding macro lens is also great for all around use.

My requirements for a macro lens have not changed for decades: Foremost: It MUST resolve a flat field sharply corner to corner without distortion and maximum optical quality in the 1:10 to 1:1 magnification ratio range at some aperture (eg. f5.6 to f8 for 35mm) This lens accurately resolves every nuance of detail and color to the new 40mp sensor, so is excellent for accurate copy work, and along with the pixel shift capability; is a spectacular performer for higher resolution imaging. A dedicated macro lens that can also give excellent quality at infinity focus is a real accomplishment. Thankfully this lens is up to that task for landscapes and in also for general use. Portraits at f2.8 render a classic focus/defocused area look. The bokeh is usefully accurate looking. I think many will find this lens ideal for many full body and small group images, in addition to it's obvious utility for product and tabletop work. Since focus breathing is low, and the angle of view renders the near/far relationship of objects in the 3 dimensional field much the same as the eye; focus stacking in macro photography is easy and accurate. The build quality and handling are very nice. Auto-focus is silent, fast and accurate. The lens hood is well designed. Absolutely worth every penny to me.

Amazing Macro lens. You can almost put your subject in the lens hood. Great detail in every shot. Good for day to day lens as well.

Will this lens using the new Fujifilm XT-5 or X-H2 camera with Nikon ES-2 adapter be useful for slide copying?
Asked by: Nolan
The Nikon ES-2 is designed for specific Nikon lenses and cameras having Negative Digitizer Mode; however, the FUJIFILM XF 30mm f/2.8 R LM WR Macro Lens has a 1:1 reproduction ratio and is capable of copying slides very well.

How does this compare to the How does this compare to Fujifilm 80mm 1:.2.8 R L OIS WR MACRO?
Asked by: Karen
FUJIFILM XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens has an image stabilizer, the FUJIFILM XF 30mm f/2.8 R LM WR Macro Lens does not. Also you have a much longer minimum focusing distance on the 80mm lens of 9.84". The 30mm is 3.9". With that longer distance you have more space to add a light between the lens and the subject. Also if photographing subjects like butterflies they are less likely to fly away since you are not as close. Also being far away there is less of a chance the camera creates a shadow on the subject.
