Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro

At the beginning, there was no macro lens for Fujifilm X. Then one half of the macro lens has appeared, namely XF 60mm with reproduction ratio of just 1:2. Because of that, the macro photographers either didn’t take Fujifilm X into account, or, like me, used third party lenses with converters, like AF Micro Nikkor 200mm f/4. Suddenly, Fujifilm management promised a real macro lens. Initially rumors were about 120mm, but soon it turned out to be 80mm more probable. We were waiting long time, new dates and deadlines suggested by oracles were passing, and finally it is! So long promised and even longer awaited real macro lens for Fujifilm X!
