    "Great Lens for APS-C Cameras!!!...Nice addition to our photography business!! can't be beat for the price!!...Great for beginners - fixed lens - slow autofocus...Main complaints are the slow auto focus, loud mechanics, and plastic body. Event photography/video look great. Also this is a fixed lens does not zoom so you will need to get active to get that shot."

    Top comment

    "Do yourself a favor and buy this lens...This lens blew my expectations out of the water.

    Product Description

    XF70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR makes it easy to take super telephoto photography with you on your greatest adventures and create images that convey the true excitement and awe of the experience. This remarkably versatile X Series zoom lens offers an equivalent focal range of 107-457mm and a minimum close focusing distance of 32.7in (0.83m) throughout, achieving 0.33x maximum tele macro magnification. It is also possible to pair the lens with XF1.4X TC WR and XF2X TC WR teleconverters to achieve a huge equivalent focal length of up to 914mm in exchange for only 2 stops of stop-loss. Autofocus is driven by a linear motor for fast, near-silent autofocus precision, while the built-in Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) provides up to 5.5 stops of vibration reduction. All this ensures you’re always ready to make images, whether it’s the undergrowth beneath your feet, or a tree on a distant horizon. This much ability often requires a trade-off in size, but XF70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR’s 17 elements in 12 groups, including two ED elements, are housed within a highly portable body that measures just 5.2in (132.5mm) in length and weighs 1.3lb (580g). With a dust- and moisture-resistant construction and the ability to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C), this lens makes the perfect companion, wherever your next adventure takes you.
