XF 100-400 f 4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Yes Virginia…….
There is a Santa Claus! | Bill Fortney

INTRODUCTION:  O.K. so he either came a little late or really early!  So, before I gush like a teenager, and sadly I’m going to,  let’s go over the physical information on the new Fuji XF 100-400 f 4.5 – 5.6 R LM OIS WR .  Above is the lens mounted on a  tripod with the X-T1 Graphite body.  The lens has 21 elements in 14 groups and they include; 6 extra low dispersion elements, and 1 super low dispersion elements.  The 100-400 features 9 rounded aperture blades.  The first great news is that the new lens takes 77mm filters, far smaller than we had guessed it would, most rumor sites were thinking around 82mm! This means polarizers and close up diopters, (like the Canon 500D work great!),  more on that later!  Below is the 100-400 with the lens hood attached, which bayonets on very positively and has a cut out for adjusting a polarizer, with a handy sliding door, much better than the removable, and easy to misplace, one for the 50-140!………

You review sold me. I knew I needed to get this lens for the wildlife and nature photography and after reading this I decided not to wait and put in my pre-order. It’s only money. The nephews and nieces inheritance just dropped a few buck but I am going to be enjoying myself shooting in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
