He was waiting, waiting and finally went away. Three have come instead. Or even four. The new ones are quite sexy, beautiful, shapely and… sharp! So who has gone? AF-S Nikkor 300mm G ED VR II. And who have come?
In the spare time I have made some shots with both lenses. Definitely this is neither a scientific analysis nor neutral comparison. This is because Fujinon was working on X-Pro2 – 24 Mpx, while Nikkor was on the D810 – 36 Mpx. Why this way? The simple answer: I don’t have any APS-C Nikon body. A bit more complex answer: Fujinon is an APC-C lens, so it’s natural way of working is with APS-C body. But Nikkor is a full frame lens – in it’s case the natural environment is the full frame body. So why would I use it with APS-C body? Especially when the majority of the weight is concentrated in the lens?
Generally I wanted to write something about one of the more interesting lenses, like one of the primes. But it happened that I went together with my family to the garden of Polish Academy of Sciences in Powsin. And as usually in such case, I decided to take with me only a basic, versatile set of gear. And this is why my bag was loaded with just three lenses, including the light, compact FUJINON XF55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS.
FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is currently the longest Fujifilm lens for mirrorless Fuji cameras.
I had to give it a try – no other option 🙂
No, this is not another, an in-depth description of Fujifilm X-Pro2. It will be a subjective description of the camera, and, in principle, what I noticed after the first few days of use. And it will not be just a series of delights, because I found things both positive and negative.
