The Fujifilm XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens offers outstanding image quality, excellent construction and weather-proofing, quick, quiet and reliable auto-focusing, and very effective image stabilisation, not to mention the longest focal length of any XF lens.

The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a super telephoto zoom lens that covers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 152-609mm. The high performance optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses.
As a result, it delivers the highest image quality in its class. The lens has been designed for handheld shooting with a 5.0-stop image stabilisation system and weighs less than 1.4kg. The linear motor realises fast autofocusing and makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects including aircraft and motorsports.
The lens is also both water and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, so it is suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt, further improving the toughness of the lens.
Reduced chromatic aberration to help deliver high resolution images
The optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups, which includes five ED lenses and a Super ED lens, delivers results comparable to a fluorite lens, and by reducing axial chromatic aberration it produces images full of detail.
The maximum magnification is 0.19x, enabling users to shoot telephoto macro images.
Class-leading 5.0-stop image stabilisation
A 5.0-stop image stabilisation system – the most powerful in any super telephoto zoom lens – produces blur-free results even at the maximum telephoto setting of 609mm (35mm equivalent). Also, if panning is detected, the lens automatically switches camera shake correction to the vertical plane only.
Fast and quiet AF thanks to twin linear motors
Twin linear motors are used to deliver fast focusing on moving subjects. The motors are so quiet that the lens is ideal for shooting live music performances and theatre productions.
Even faster AF shooting is possible with the focus limiter function, which limits the close focusing point to 5m.
Compact and lightweight design
The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR has a weight of less than 1.4kg which reduces the strain of shooting handheld substantially. When mounted to the FUJIFILM X-T1 body, the combined weight is below 2kg. It enhances user mobility. In addition, the weight distribution of the lens when attached to a body makes it feel lighter than it really is.
Water/dust resistance, -10°C low-temperature operation and fluorine coating
The lens features 13 water and dust resistant seals at 12 points, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments.
The fluorine coating applied to the front lens element is water repellent and it is less susceptible to smudges and can easily be cleaned.
Lens hood with a polarising filter window and lock mechanism
The lens hood features a sliding window so a polarising filter can still be accessed even when the hood is in place.
The hood also features a locking mechanism to keep it securely attached to the lens.
The Fujifilm Fujinon Teleconverter XF 1.4x TC WR is an essential accessory for Fujifilm photographers who require more telephoto reach from their long lenses.
The XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a welcome addition to Fuji’s lens lineup. It opens up the ability for Fuji shooters to photograph sports and wildlife by offering significantly more reach than any of their other lenses.
As the only lens in Fuji's lineup that reaches as long as it does, this is a case of if you need a lens to do this, you really don't have any other brand-name choices. Fortunately, it's a capable performer, and I have no doubt Fuji will sell a lot of these lenses.
This is a very well made lens with lovely bokeh and a high level of sharpness. Flare, CA and distortion are all but abolished. Images look clean and crisp and sharpen well in Photoshop.
I part-exed my FF Canon kit (inc a 100-400) because the older I got, the less fun it was to lug all that weight around. Originally, I was in two minds about this lens because of the size & weight (relative to other Fuji lenses), but I found I really, really missed having a long telephoto.
Not very tech minded so can't comment on that side of things but this lens suits my current needs for wildlife photography very well, although I do find it heavy combined with the camera weight too. Overall I am happy with it though.
I have had this lens long enough now to have had a good test in different conditions. Image quality has been beyond what I had expected from the reviews I had read on line. This is a much lighter lens in use than the weight would make you think and in comparison with some of the other, equivalent...
Bought this a few months back and for some reason my review disappeared. Anyhow, this is the one and only wildlife lens for the Fuji X system. Yes its big for mirrorless, yes its plastic in parts, but IQ is surprisingly good even with the 1.4TC.
A tad heavy, ( not much weight saving over similar DSLR lens) but superb quality and of course you save on the body weight.
I have just come back from a landscape photography trip to the North East of England and over half of the best images made on this trip have come from it despite having from 10mm up.
I am moving from Nikon (D810 and a number of lenses) to Fuji X-T2/T3. In addition to landscapes, macro, and travel photos I like to do bird photography. I am still mastering the focus system on the Fuji cameras and have tested the Fuji 100-400mm lens for several weeks. Thus far I am satisfied.
I got this lens for wildlife footage and have been very impressed with the quality of this lens. I already have captured some very good shots. I have this paired to a Fuji XT4 and both the photo and video quality is first class.
The lens has had little use so far, but from what I have seen it is even better than I expected: a remarkable bit of machinery!
