Fuji 60mm f2.4 R Macro Long-term Use Review | Light Priority

The very first lens I bought to go with my X-E1 kit back in 2012 was the 60mm f2.4. Back then there were precisely 4 X-mount lens to choose from; the 18mm, the 35mm, the 60mm and the 18-55mm zoom. Not much compared to today’s lineup! At the time I wanted a lens I could use for some portraits at a friend’s wedding, so I bought the 60mm as it’s a reasonable focal length for that purpose.Unfortunately the day of the wedding was incredibly gloomy and overcast, to top it off the venue itself was very dimly lit. If you remember what it was like trying to shoot an X-E1 on 1.0 firmware with the 60mm 2.4 also on 1.0 firmware back then, you can probably guess that things did not go well! The focus was grindingly slow and frequently failed entirely, I got a few shots, but overall the experience had me wondering if I’d made a terrible mistake switching away from a DSLR……

The Fujinon XF 60mm F2.4: the twin personality lens | Daniel M

The Fujinon XF 60mm F2.4 lens is part of the initial line-up of the Fujifilm X-Mount optics. Its firmware has been improved extendedly to meet the requirement of the newest camera additions from Fujifilm. The Fujinon XF 60mm F2.4 receive a very classic presentation that will recall for some of us the classical lenses from the 35mm film era. Aperture and focus controls are traditional (although they are in fact simulated mechanical adjustments). It is not a small and light lens but without optical image stabilization option (no OIS) its heaviness add some inertial weight that can help to prevent shakeness. Yes it is a „made in Japan“ product. An imposant metallic and nicely crafted lens hood is included with the lens that can prevent some flare phenomena under certain light conditions…….

Fuji XF60mm f/2.4R: Kiss of new life for sleeping beauty | Mike Evans

When I was thinking how to frame this article, I was torn between two fairytale heroines, Sleeping Beauty, who is awoken by the handsome prince—or Cinderella who is saved from a life of drudgery by the handsome prince (a royal who clearly got about a bit). I went in the end with Sleeping Beauty because this is a tale of potential nipped in the bud—and then realised years later. The Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro is one of the first three lenses introduced by Fuji along with the X-Pro1 back in 2012. It has never been particularly loved; it’s not a true macro (1:2 not 1:1); it’s an „odd“ filter size (39mm—familiar to Leica users but not exactly mainstream). It has a reputation for being slow to focus, and prone to hunting. Initially, it still sold in some numbers because it was the only native long-focus lens (equivalent to 90mm in old money)…….

Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R Review | PhotographyBLOG

The Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R is a dedicated macro lens in Fujifilm’s XF line-up, offering 0.5x magnification and a close-focusing distance of 26.7cm. The Fujifilm 56mm F1.2 lens offers an angle-of-view similar to that of a 90mm lens in a 35mm system, well-suited to head-and-shoulder portraits, and a fairly bright f/2.4 maximum aperture for low-light shooting and throwing the background completely out-of-focus. Other highlights include an iris diaphragm with nine rounded blades, an aperture ring on the metal lens barrel, Super EBC coating for improved optical performance, and an optical formula that comprises 10 elements in 8 groups including 1 aspherical and 1 abnormal dispersion element.. The Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R lens is available for £599.99 / $649.99 in the UK and the US, respectively.

Xtend your Fuji system: All about that Hood | Rene Delbar

Let’s be honest: next to the ease-of-use of the Fujifilm X cameras, the advantages of their sensor, the performance of the XF glass and the resulting image quality, many X-shooters just love the retro design and handling of the bodies. Right from the start, with the original X100, we got a compact tool to completely enjoy taking pictures. If you’re old enough to have started photography with roll film or 35mm cassettes: just add “again” at the end. In order to augment the “old days” experience, we’ve been adding leather carrying and wrist straps, half cases, thumb grips, soft releases, old-fashioned cable releases… In the end though, you can’t but ask yourself: Why didn’t Fujifilm bring us sexier lens hoods? It started rather well actually. The X100’s fixed 23mm lens comes with a nice metal vented release. That comes handy when using the optical viewfinder, as less of the field of view is obstructed (as long as the openings are well aligned, hence the bayonet mount)……

Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro Review | Peecee Studio

The Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro is Fuji’s only macro lens for the Fujifilm X system and is the only option unless you opt for the much more expensive Zeiss 50mm f/2.8 Macro. It gives an equivalent angle of view as a 90mm lens on full-frame. Weighing in at 215g, it’s a good, lightweight option for a short telephoto prime lens or as a macro lens for doing food, product or the like where normal lenses don’t focus quite close enough. Despite its slower f/2.4 aperture, it’s still faster than Fuji’s professional zooms such as the 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS, meaning it’s perfect for use in most conditions but the dimmest lit areas. Unlike the Zeiss and most other macro lenses on other systems, the Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro only has a 0.5x magnification ratio, meaning that it is not „true 1.0x macro“, however, since the Fuji X system uses an APS-C sensor, a 0.5x magnification would be similar to a 0.75x magnification on full-frame. This level of magnification is enough for most things apart from small bugs and detail shots of flowers……….

Fuji XF60mm f/2.4 R Macro: A Lens Re-visited | Dave Young

With the release of the X-pro1, Fuji released 3 prime lenses for their interchangeable lens system cameras, the 18mm, 35mm and 60mm.

With a 35mm focal equivalent view of 90mm, Fuji’s 60mm lens was the ideal portrait lens, together with having the ability to be useful as a macro lens offering a 2:1 ratio for macro use. It’s ability to shoot sharp is well known with many top Fuji professionals once favouring it as their go to lens, however it’s ability to focus fast in anything other than good light has been questioned and with the release of the razor like 56mm f/1.2, the 60mm is less popular than it once was. Last Christmas, I had an opportunity to try the 60mm for a few days and loved it. OK, so the focussing wasn’t lightning quick, but it was OK and the rendered images made up for it. At the time I’d have bought one there and then given the right incentive. Since then I’ve changed my criteria of shooting and with the XT1, been giving serious consideration to the 56mm. The perfect lens for portraiture work, and super fast with its f/1.2 aperture and its ability to melt away backgrounds. However, a very lightly used 60mm became available at just a third of the cost of a 56mm, and so this seems to work all ways……..

REVIEW: Fujinon XF60mm f2.4 v Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 | Jeff Carter

Last month I added the superb Fujinon XF56mm f1.2R lens to my camera bag, which is the seventh Fujinon lens I have bought for my X-Series kit. It is also the third lens that covers the short telephoto range, the others being the XF55-200mm f3.5/4.8 zoom and the XF60mm f2.4R macro. This had me wondering if I could sell off one of the lenses or did each lens offer something that meant I could justify hanging on to all three? Well for starters we can ignore the 55-200mm zoom as this lens offers the long telephoto reach I need for my landscapes and wildlife. It is an excellent all round zoom lens that has a place in my camera bag. So that leaves the two prime lenses…….

Get Fujinon XF60mm to 1:1 magnification ratio | Ming Art

The Fujinon XF60mm macro lens has a magnification factor of 1:2. There are various other options like the pricey Zeiss 50mm macro, which is a true 1:1 autofocus lens or vintage manual lenses like Minolta 50mm or 100mm using a converter. I just posted some few sample images here and don´t go into details, since you find a very good article at Lichtklicker. All images shot with the X-E2, Fujinon 60mm macro lens and Raynox DCR-250 using Velvia filmsimulation……

How to get the Fujinon XF60mm f/2.4 R to 1:1 magnification ratio? |
André Heid

The Fujinon XF60mm macro lens was one of “starter” lenses introduced with the X-Pro1 early 2012. I guess everyone ever has used this lens was surely happy with the overall picture quality, detail sharpness and the lightweight and excellent build body. But many of these users may also complained about the very slow and noisy autofocus and the limited magnification factor of ‘only’ 1:2. In the meantime the autofocus performance was subsequently improved by firmware updates and is in my opinion on the par with full frame macro lenses with noisy micro motors. What of course could not be changed through firmware is the magnification factor…
