John Ashton says:

Nice review, thanks. Do you think the relatively narrow aperture, no wider than F4.5 is a problem with sports requiring faster shutter speeds or will the reported excellent image stabilisation compensate?

The Photography Team says:

I cant see an aperture ring?????

Andrei Todoran says:

So Fuji makes mostly metal lenses, even some cheap one like the 18mm and then uses plastic for the biggest and most expensive one…disappointing

Steven Lui says:

Great review! I’ve got this lens and XF 50-140 as well. The TC 1.4x works well with XF 50-140 but not so wit

I have that exact shirt (54 year old guy in Southern California). Apparently it attracts photographers… of a certain age… lol

Well, see it from this perspective. If this lens would be made completely out of metal the people would complain about the weight. I know what I am talking about because I use the Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 on my Nikon D500 and this monster weights 3.3kg alone already. Together with the camera incl. grip I am at almost 5kg. This Fuji 100-400mm f/4.5 lens weights now 1.4kg what makes together with the Fuji X-T2 and a grip about 2.2kg. More than half the wight… Guess what I prefer.

Can you please comment what focusing mode you were using? Single, zone, wide? Continuous? Thank you

Kenneth Rosenstroem says:

Where are Your samples?

RemekTek Media says:

Excellent review, Ben. Really liked the punchy and informative approach. I shoot X-T1 and have X-T2 on pre-order. Good to know I can hire this lens for a weekend to use and try out. Glad you had added it to Lens Rental’s list. How about also adding the 2x converter?
