Introduction

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a new professional weather-resistant super-telephoto zoom lens for Fujifilm’s X-series interchangeable lens cameras. The 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 lens boasts an angle-of-view range similar to that of a 152-609mm lens in a 35mm system, which can be extended to 213-853mm using the optional XF 1.4x TC WR teleconverter. Other highlights include a Twin Linear Motor which enables quiet and high-speed auto focusing, an optical construction with 21 elements arranged in 14 groups including 5 ED lens elements and 1 Super ED lens element with low dispersion characteristics, a flourine coating to help prevent smudging, moisture, and dust, nine rounded aperture blades for a smooth circular bokeh, a 1/3EV step aperture ring, a minimum working distance of 1.75m for the entire zoom range, and 5-stop optical image stabilsation. The Fujinon XF 50-400mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR has a suggested retail price of £1399 / $1899.

Ease of Use

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is an undeniably large and heavy telephoto lens, weighing 1.375kg and dwarfing the X-Pro2 camera that we tested it with. It's the largest, longest and heaviest XF lens currently available, although if you compare the 100-400mm / X-Pro2 combination to the Canon or Nikon equivalent, it's significantly lighter and smaller overall. So, depending on your viewpoint, the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is either too big for the X-series bodies, or it's a lighter alternative to the Canon/Nikon offerings. Also note that the length of the lens changes as you zoom out, reaching 27cm at the 400mm focal length.

The overall build quality is excellent, in keeping with an X-series body like the X-T1, although we were a little disappointed to see that the lens barrel is mainly made of high-grade plastics, rather than being metal - still, it does at least help to keep the weight down. The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens does boast a brass mount, focus/zoom rings and lens exterior, and a non-rotating 77mm filter thread.

The zoom ring is generously wide and has a ridged, rubberised grip band. Both the zoom and the focus rings are smooth in action without being loose. Zoom creep is not an issue, but there is a Zoom Lock switch available if you do experience it. The focus ring is wide enough but doesn't have any “hard stops” at either end of the focus range.

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens has a traditional aperture ring on the lens barrel, which allows you to set the aperture in 1/3 steps, although unlike the 50-140mm variable-aperture zoom lens, this one is unmarked. The aperture ring is nicely damped and makes a distinctive click as you change the setting.

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR has a built-in OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) equivalent to 5 stops, which can be handily turned on and off via the dedicated OIS switch on the lens barrel.

The focus limiter switch on the side of the lens barrel enables you to set the focusing range to either the full range of 1.75m to infinity, or from 5m to infinity.

A metal tripod mount is supplied with the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR, which is attached to the lens via a circular ring that can be rotated from landscape to portrait orientation using a single thumbscrew on the side of the barrel. The tripod mount is rather awkwardly attached to the lens via two smaller captive thumsbcrews - we say awkwardly, because while removing the mount was easy, it was incredibly difficult to re-attach it again - it's definitely something that you wouldn't want to do in a hurry. Note that the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR also lacks a threaded hole on the bottom to allow more direct mounting of a tripod or lens strap system.

In terms of accessories, the lens ships with a very large plastic petal-shaped hood and the usual cloth bag - we'd have liked a proper padded case for such a premium lens. Usefully the lens hood has a small removable square on the bottom which makes it easier to use a circular polariser.

Focal Range

At the 100mm end of the zoom range, the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens has an angle of view of 16.2 degrees.

Distortion

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR exhibits virtually no barrel or pincushion distortion, as you can see in the photos below.

Focusing

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens has an internal focusing (IF) system with a very quiet twin linear AF motor. In practice, we found the auto-focus to be fast, almost silent and with very little hunting even in low-light. Thanks to the IF mechanism the front of the lens does not rotate on focus, which is very good news for anyone looking to use the lens in conjunction with a polariser or graduated neutral density filter.

Chromatic Aberrations

Chromatic aberrations, typically seen as purple or blue fringes along contrasty edges, are not a problem with the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens, so much so that we couldn't find any examples in our test shots.

Macro

The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is not a macro lens. The close-focus point is at 1.75m from the sensor plane and the maximum magnification is 0.19x at full telephoto. The following example illustrates how close you can get to the subject, in this case a CompactFlash card.

Bokeh

Bokeh is a word used for the out-of-focus areas of a photograph, and is usually described in qualitative terms, such as smooth / creamy / harsh etc. Fujifilm have paid attention to this aspect of lens use, employing a 9-segment diaphragm with rounded blades for pleasing bokeh. In our view, their efforts have been very successful - see the examples below.

Reduced chromatic aberration to help deliver high resolution images

The optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups, which includes five ED lenses and a Super ED lens, delivers results comparable to a fluorite lens, and by reducing axial chromatic aberration it produces images packed with detail. The maximum magnification is 0.19x, enabling users to shoot telephoto macro images.

Class-leading 5.0-stop* image stabilization

A 5.0-stop image stabilization system — the most powerful in any super telephoto zoom lens — produces shake-free results even at the maximum telephoto setting of 609mm (35mm format equivalent). Also, if panning is detected, the lens automatically switches camera shake correction to the vertical plane only.

Fast, quiet AF thanks to twin linear motors

Twin linear motors are used to deliver fast focusing on moving subjects. The motors are also quiet, so the lens is ideal for shooting live music performances and theatre productions. Even faster AF shooting is possible with the focus limiter function, which limits the close focusing point to 5m.

Compact and lightweight design

Thanks to a weight of less than 1.4kg, the strain of shooting handheld has been substantially reduced. When mounted to an X-T1 body, the combined weight is below 2kg, so it's easier to keep moving while shooting. What’s more, the weight distribution of the lens when attached to a body makes it feel lighter than it really is.

Water / dust resistance, -10°C low-temperature operation and fluorine coating

The lens features 13 water and dust resistant seals at 12 points, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments.
The fluorine coating applied to the front lens element is water repellent so it’s less susceptible to smudges and can easily be cleaned.

Lens hood with a polarizing filter window and lock mechanism

The lens hood features a sliding window so a polarizing filter can still be accessed even when the hood is in place.
The hood also features a locking mechanism to keep securely attached to the lens.

Compatible with the 1.4x Teleconverter

The lens offers compatibility with the XF1.4X TC WR teleconverter. When attached, it becomes a 140-560mm F6.3-8 or 213-853mm
(35mm format equivalent). Phase detection AF shooting remains possible, even at F8.

Accessories

A lens plate (MLP-75XF) compatible with ARCA SWISS tripods is available as an optional extra. This plate is also compatible with the XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR.
