Welcome to the second Fuji Features post! Each article in this series will have a different theme. The first one featured the Fujifilm X-E4. This one is is all about the Fujinon 70-300mm lens.
I badly want the new Fujinon 70-300mm zoom lens!
You see, I have the 100-400mm (review here), which is great, but it’s so big and heavy that I hardly ever use it. When I do use the 100-400mm, I really enjoy the pictures that I capture with it, but sadly most of the time it sits on a shelf. My thoughts are, since the 70-300mm is roughly 40% smaller and about half the weight, I’d likely use it more often. The problem is that I have to sell the 100-400mm first (if you’re interested, hit me up) in order to afford it.
Anyway, I searched the web and found a whole bunch of Fujinon 70-300mm reviews and videos. I hope that they’re helpful to some of you, or at least entertaining. It’s hump day, so maybe this will help you get through it.

Plus some videos! Lots and lots of videos….
Fujifilm Lens Stories, too!
This is a really tough call. On the one hand it’s a fantastic focus range, lightweight and can theoretically replace both the 55-200 and the 100-400. On the other hand it’s a bit of a compromise lens, not as fast or wide as the 55-200 and not as good image quality as the 100-400. I think personally I’ll stick with the two lenses. Having come from Nikon with a selection of old heavy lenses, even the 100-400 feels relatively lightweight in comparison!
I think the 55-200 is a great option. I would consider that, too. I just don’t use the 100-400mm enough to justify keeping it.
Hey Ritchie, check this out. I saw this video this morning and it really made me have a new appreciation for how good the fuji film simulations are. I bet you will like this too!

That’s great! Thank you for sharing!
