Betty LaRue Posted November 30, 2017 Share Posted November 30, 2017 For you Fuji shooters, the 80mm, 2.8 macro is now shipping. Mine arrived about 8 p.m. yesterday. I’ve taken a couple dozen images with it, and it’s one sweet lens. First impressions...heavy as I lifted it out of the box. Once mounted on my X-T2 I never thought of it again. I always cradle larger lenses in my non-shooting hand anyway. Its bokadelicious with creamy backgrounds. I shot every image at 1/30 shutter speed hand-held and got sharp images. So the ummm, whaddayoucallit shake reduction really works! It is pricy, but I paid for it from selling my Nikon kit. I shot a couple of crabapples hanging from my tree at f11 with a wood fence about 8 feet behind and all I got was a creamy gray background. Thats my review and I’m sticking to it! I’ve been without a macro for several years and I sure missed having one. No bugs to shoot what with winter setting in, darn! If anyone is truly interested in this lens I’ll post a couple of images on Dropbox. Let me know. Betty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
