The Fuji XF 100-400mm lens. Interesting how things have reversed. Initially I returned the lens after one day, having decided that it was far too heavy (almost 1.4kg) and too big to carry around. But after seeing so many brilliant pictures on the internet, and also needing a longer zoom, I purchased it again. Once you have adjusted to the size of it (it is big !!) and have adapted your way of carrying it, then it starts to get better. Initially I thought that I would only use it occasionally, but as it is such a great lens then I am finding that I use it much more often. FAST at focusing and also fast at taking photos, but it is the photo quality which is outstanding. I used to think that the Fuji 18-55mm kit lens was fantastic, but now the XF 100-400mm lens has taken top place. Not a cheap lens to buy but quality costs, and this lens certainly IS quality. The 3 photos below of sea lions in New Zealand will show what this lens can do, although the images here are only low resolution copies for the internet. The photos below were taken with the Fuji X-T20 and the XF 100-400mm lens, all taken as jpegs.

When was the last time that you printed a photo??? Nowadays it seems to be the trend to take a photo with a mobile phone, then only share it via Facebook or Instagram. The photo is only a temporary thing, shared then forgotten. Previously photos were printed out, then passed around at meetings of friends. Far easier to look at a printed photo instead of an image on a mobile phone or tablet. Photos printed out mean more. Much nice to look at a printed photo then a mobile phone screen. And photos will be treasured more than an image on a mobile phone screen for only a few seconds. Many of those images on a mobile phone will only last as long as the phone lasts, whereas photos that are printed out will last a long longer. And printing photos is fun too !!
Today’s photo was taken with the Fuji X-T20 camera and the Fuji XF 100-400mm lens. The quality of the lens is amazing, and with 5 stops of stabilisation, photos like this can be taken hand held. The lens is big and heavy (almost 1.4kg) but the quality of the photos speaks for itself.
and another photo….Lake Hawea on the South Island of New Zealand. An early morning photo….
