Fujinon 80mm Macro

Recommended Posts

Just had an email from WEX that my new Fujinon 80mm Macro is to be delivered tomorrow, yippee. Hopefully it will be as good as predicted, I’m sure it will. Although overnight delivery cost me an extra £7.95, I just don’t care. :D:D:D

The lens turned up on Saturday, and these are a very quick bash to begin to get a feel for it!

Enjoy your new lens, Mike. I challenge you to get a shot of Dave's paws. From underneath. :D

The lens they should have made instead of the 60/2.4 faux Macro.

 

I'd be interested to hear if it can actually make use of OIS when hand-held at higher magnifications. Other macro lenses with image stabilisation always seem to have difficulty with this - indeed, the instructions that came with my old Nikkor 105/2.8 VR lens specifically mentioned turning off VR when using the lens at macro magnifications.

C6C7C029-CC6A-4014-BA61-543D158388EE.jpegAbsolutely agree Alan, and my 60mm along with my 90mm went in PX for the new lens. I prefer the handling compared to the 90mm, also I suffered from a bit of finger trouble and couldn’t get the lens to work with the 2X TC, but I gave myself a slap and mounted the combo correctly and lo it worked, oops. 

 

Reminds me me of the Nikon 105mm VR in weight and size, need more experience regarding the OIS as you can imagine it’s early days yet. The lens is also quite a fatty. I think it will inevitably be compared to the 90mm and it is bigger, but as I said the feel in the hand is nicer, I’m not very good at reviewing but will attempt to answer questions that arise!

The 90 and this lens are designed for different purposes, of course - that stop extra wide open for the 90 makes a big difference to background rendering compared with f/2.8, but then again the 80 will be a much more versatile lens overall.

By the way, there is a wart on the shutter button. You should consult a dermatologist about this.

 

Are you by chance referring the stunning orange enhancement to my shutter button, surely not

I would also miss the additional 15mm AOV, which makes quite a difference for me in nature and landscape photographs.  Also, I can easily shoot the 90mm with one hand.  That extra half-pound, and bulk, would make this more difficult, as well as add to the weight carried in my off-trail and other outdoor adventures.
