Betty LaRue Posted March 10, 2016 Share Posted March 10, 2016 I received this lens day before yesterday. Due to a favorable exchange rate for the U.S., I ordered it through Henry's in Canada. $400 plus savings for me. It took three days to ship. Because much has been said about autofocus for some subjects like birds, and my using the Nikon system for birding successfully for years, I wondered whether I could duplicate my success using the Fuji system. People on the FujiX forum suggested all sorts of settings to attain focus. First, though I wanted to see if I could do it the way I was used to. I went into the settings and reduced the focus box not to the smallest, but next smallest. With the new lens giving me a much larger subject than with my 50-140, I am able to put the focus box on the bird's eye. So yes, I can shoot this lens like I'm used to. AF all the way. The lens is sharp, like every Fuji lens I own, but equal with the 50-140. I took most of my shots at 400 and feel no need to back off for more sharpness. It's a beast of a lens, but the OIS is fantastic, and I shot everything at 400 hand-held. It's a Wow lens! Betty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
