Fujiguys: Fujinon XF60mm f/2.4 & XF80mm f/2.8 Side by Side

The Fujiguys shoot the Fujifilm Fujinon XF60mm and XF80mm side by side along with extension tubes and teleconverters for the first time and the results they present are quite similar. I currently own the XF60mm and am finding the XF80mm hard to resist, but if you look really hard you can find the Fujinon XF60mm used for prices so low that it’s impossible to say no. You have to really love macro work to step up into the XF80mm, but the ability to use the 2.0x and 1.4x teleconverter is compelling. If you own one or both already the XF80mm becomes an extremely versatile lens.

  • I have the 60 and got it not because of the near-macro capabilities but because of the combination of focal length, fast-ish aperture, small size and decent price on the used market. The close-up abilities are also nice to have when I need them.

    • I got an obscenely good deal on the used market… It was the sharpest X system launch lens, but the XF35 was the best.
