My Fujifilm XF100-400 Zoom Lens Review

I received the Fujifilm XF100-400 F/4.5-5.6 zoom lens from Fuji (not sponsored, I requested it as part of the Fuji Photographers programme I’m in).
And so I went to test it in the woods even though I don’t normally photograph much wildlife.

I had an idea for a photo of the full moon (more on that during the video) as you know that I’m always keen on a good moon photo. Hence why I asked Fujifilm to send me the lens. But I also wanted to use it to its full capabilities in the field. Access to sport events was not an option, so the woods were the obvious choice.
I went to a few locations in London to photograph the wildlife and I immediately enjoyed this Fujifilm XF 100-400 F/4.5-5.6 zoom lens.
I believe I managed to get some great photos with it.

If you’re curious, the locations of the video are St James’s Park, Richmond Park and One Tree Hill.

The Video

All the photos I’m including in this video are unedited, except for the 4-5 I clearly specify the works I did on them. This way you can really see the quality that this lens produces.
In the next days I will publish here a couple galleries here with all the final versions of my images so come back for that!

Here is the video:

Here’s the usual direct link, in case the embed doesn’t work:

But then, if the Fujifilm XF100-400 is so good, why am I not buying it? Well, I contemplated the purchase for a long time, but there a few reasons why I don’t think it is a wise purchase for me. And let me be clear: for me and my photography.
Also, it is rumoured that Fujfiilm will release a 150-600mm in 2022 so maybe now it’s better to wait for that… Which is of course just another excuse to procrastinate more 😉

Anyway, I leave you to the video.

And I’ll see you next time!
