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……….
