Pros: Quite portable, decent resolution, weather sealing, close up capability.
Cons: The zoom ring is quite stiff on rotation, noisy and shaking when switch off or change from shooting to play, expensive in comparison with the competition on the same segment quality/price; I experienced several strange moments when suddenly refused to focus.
Opinion: Its zoom range is welcomed and is filling a gap in the Fuji chain of lenses. I like the weather sealing and its close up capabilities, the resolution is decent, but not extraordinary.
It is also nice that it accepts teleconverters and, at least with the 1.4x version, a decent prolongation can be achieved. I made a comparison, on the same body, with the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 VR and the sharpness is more or less the same, but the price of the Nikon is more than 3x lower. The main advantage of Fuji in this comparison is the weather sealing, acceptance of teleconverters and it seems, the lack of focus breathing.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:A lot of Pro +++++, So much sharpness to give, Rings, AF, Stabilizer, WR gasket for dust and humidity, light but excellent construction, excellent internal profile corrections.
Cons:Not negative only an observation the AF low light but physiological limit, chromatic aberrations at focal length 300 mm nothing dramatic, focal angles 300 mm but seen zoom extension still excellent. A lens not suitable to have the best possible bokeh I would say normal for such an extended zoom.
Opinion:Or bought yesterday Friday on 06.08.2021 this optics 70-300. Really was a nice surprise for me. I had as tele zoom twice the 55-200 the 50-230 and the 50-140. For me the absolute best tele zoom tried ok for what concerns the phenomenal 50-140 with ultra fast AF but or criticized the weight of this lens and I do not even feel so much the lack of this lens. The 70-300 really built very well I also find rings ok the sharpness and stabilizer I just have to say exceed my expectations. Do I have to reflect what can be negative about this perspective? I can only think of the AF with low light but I do not find it physiological negative then sufficient if someone is not satisfied set the AF on Multi Zone. Definitely not a lens for sports action I recommend them go on the zoom 50-140. For portrait not the right optics bokeh better than the Fuji 90 2.0. The stabilizer comes to new records tested with Fuji X-H1 and X-T4 stabilized sensor plus lens stabilizer makes a winning weapon. I find the performance and price ratio really very high kudos Fuji to did a great job. If you buy this lens and don't need large apertures and super fast AF and bokeh cutting edge theme can be nature photos, macros, travel, architecture then this 70-300 we recommend does the same job as a zoom 50-140 sharpness with the advantage comes to focal length 300 mm more super stabilized with the Fuji X-T4 a dream realized.
Pros:Compactness, phenomenal stabilization, weight, focus distance, tropicalization, price, possibility of using focal multipliers
Cons:Lens hood, zoom stroke too hard, aperture ring too soft
Opinion:Well-conceived lens, I bought it as a replacement for the 50-230 splendid lens that gave me many satisfactions but I needed those 100mm more. Top construction, weight greater than the xc but still very contained. Very close focus distance allows you to take pictures of fleeting insects (bees, butterflies etc ...) while maintaining a respectable distance. It is tropicalized, admits multipliers (I hope to try them soon), Fast Af and rarely reed, the stabilizer is a bomb! It shoots at 1/20 freehand at 300mm... I do not think we can do any better! The price in relation to the quality is correct but I'm sure that with time it will settle on 750 €, I L took it to 850 €.... On the cons I could L emphasis on the hardness of the zoom in my opinion excessive, the manual focus and the aperture ring, on the other hand, are too soft, this feature can give boredom in some cases. The lens hood is too bulky if mounted on the contrary does not allow you to use the zoom and is plastic. For a sporting use (trekking, hiking, tourism or sport if not excessively far from the subjects) it is a bomb!!!
Opinion:the apsc format with this lens expresses its incredible compactness. a 100-450 that does not disappoint. Only attention from 200 to 300 mm preferable to use times from .60 and up, at least on xt3. With stabilized sensor I do not know. Optics that will maintain an excellent value over time, I'm sure, it will hardly fall in the second-hand market below 500 euros.
Pros:Small size and weight, good sharpness, fast and quiet AF, zoom lock button, stabilizer
Cons:It is well built but the plastics do not seem to me like other Fuji lenses, the lampshed is very plastic and some compromises have to be accepted; absence of stabilizer selector.
Opinion:Praise Fuji for this compact, well-built and lightweight lens. In combination with the 1.4x tc it is possible to have an equivalent 520mm (630mm with the sensor crop factor), with maximum compactness and transportability. I like the lock button to stop zooming and prevent it from extending when we transport the camera, I like tropicalization, I like the stabilizer and I like the optical scheme that allows you to get good blurry and use the lens even as a macro, given the reduced minimum focus distance. Good sharpness and color rendering. I do not like the absence of the sector of activation /deactivation of the stabilizer on the barrel and I do not like some plastics, not at the top, and above all that of the lampshed that is of a poor level, not to say chinese. The AF works well and is fast, however coupled with the 1.4x TC it seemed to me that it slows down slightly more than with fuji 100-400mm... Future firmware will probably improve it. The best yield comes between f8 and f11. Present on some focal lengths and at certain openings, distortion, vignetting and aberration, all phenomena that, however, arise to a limited extent and not such as to compromise the final result.
