FUJIFILM FUJINON XF30mm F/2.8 R LM WR Macro Lens Introduced – 10cm Minimum Focusing Distance

FUJIFILM has just introduced a new compact and lightweight macro lens: the FUJINON XF30mm F/2.8 R LM WR. This lens is weather-sealed and has a minimum focusing distance of only 10cm/3.94in. It’ll be available by the end of this month for $599.95.

Few options for macro enthusiasts are available if you’re shooting with a FUJIFILM X-Mount mirrorless camera. Indeed, at the moment, only the XF80mm F/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro is available. But, of course, third-party lens manufacturers like Laowa have 65mm and 100mm T2.9 2x macro APO lenses that can get the job done but without autofocus capabilities.

FUJIFILM FUJINON XF30mm F/2.8 R LM WR Macro: features

The FUJINON XF30mm F/2.8 R LM WR Macro is a fairly lightweight and compact X-mount lens with a weight of only 195g/6.88oz for a length of 6.9cm/2.74in. So the least we can say is that it won’t take up a lot of space in your camera bag!

This lens is designed for APS-C image sensors, giving you a full-frame equivalent close to a 46mm lens. I like lenses close to a full-frame 40/50mm field of view, as it is natural looking and great for portraits. This XF30mm F/2.8 Macro could be an excellent all-around prime lens for various shooting scenarios.

On the inside, the lens uses an Inner Focus system, which means a linear motor moves the lens group. It results in extremely fast focusing performance while remaining smooth and silent.

Lens design

The XF30mm F/2.8 Macro’s optical design consists of 11 elements in 9 groups. In addition, it includes three aspherical elements and two ED elements to help reduce chromatic/spherical aberrations and field curvature. Also, the lens barrel is sealed in nine places, so the lens is dust- and weather resistant and can shoot in low temperatures up to -10°C/14°F.

The minimum focusing distance is 10cm/3.94in, and the front filter diameter is 43mm.
