Fast, Quiet AF Thanks to Twin Linear Motors
The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a long-reaching zoom lens optimized for use in harsh climates. Created for Fujifilm X-series mirrorless cameras and delivers a 152-609mm (35mm equivalent focal length range). Ideally suited for wildlife and sports shooting, the versatile telephoto range is an advantage when photographing far-off, moving subjects, and is bolstered by a twin linear AF motor for quick performance, as well as effective five stop optical image stabilization to diminish the appearance of camera shake. Also an advantage for outdoor use, this 100-400mm lens also features a weather-sealed build and a fluorine-coated front element guards against dust and moisture from
interfering with the lens' performance.
The lens optical design incorporates five extra-low dispersion elements and a single Super extra-low dispersion element, which diminish color fringing and chromatic aberrations all through the zoom range for enhanced clarity and color fidelity. In addition a nine-blade diaphragm adds to a pleasant bokeh quality when working with selective focus styles.
Created for APS-C-format X-mount mirrorless cameras, this telephoto zoom provides a 152-609mm (35mm equivalent focal length range) to handle working with far away subjects.
There are 21 elements in 14 groups in the optical layout which includes five extra-low dispersion elements and a single Super extra-low dispersion element to diminish chromatic aberrations and distortions all through the entire zoom range.
Five effectives stops make up the optical image stabilization system to diminish the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld images in low-light situations and shooting with slower shutter speeds.
The twin linear motor AF system privides quick and smooth autofocus operation that is especially an advantage when shooting fast-moving subjects.
Located on the side of the lens barrel is a focus limiter switch to let you constrain the focusing range to the entire range of 5.7' thru infinity, or from 16.4' thru infinity providing quicker focusing performance with far off subjects.
A fluorine coating has been added to the front lens element to safeguard against smudging, moisture, along with dust.
The lens body uses 13 distinct weather seals in located in 12 places to guard against dust and moisture, and to enable no-worry use in inclement situations. In addition, the weather-sealed design also allows working in temperatures down 14°F.
Nine rounded diaphragm blades add to a pleasant out-of-focus quality to take advantage of selective focus and shallow depth of field styles.
Zoom-lock switch stops unwanted zoom creep from happening and also can be used to keep the same zoom setting while shooting.
A hood is included lens which uses a sliding window to provide easier adjustment of rotating filters types like a polarizer, while the hood is in place.
A removable, rotating tripod collar adds to well-balanced mounting while shooting from a tripod or monopod.
It works with the available XF 1.4x TC WR teleconverter for adding to the effective focal length to a (35mm equivalent 213-853mm) range.
