I’ve been waiting for this new Fujifilm XF 150-600 R LM OIS WR F5.6-8 since the first rumours appeared on the web many years ago… And it’s finally here!
Fujifilm has been kind enough to let me test this lens for a week so that I could take one of my famous moon shots. This content is not sponsored: it just so happens that Fujifilm and I have a great relationship… I asked to try this lens, and they agreed.
And so in this latest video, I share all my thoughts about the lens, together with lots of photos, a comparison with the other telephoto lenses and my full review.
TL;DR I will probably sell the 100-400mm and get this lens for the extra reach.
In the video, I talk about the max length of the Fujifilm 150-600 in full frame equivalent (1200mm and 1800mm). My bad, don’t ask why. Maybe I’m just excited to have the chance to reach far, far away subjects, lol.
But I elaborate on how you get to those distances, so nothing should be lost in translation 🙂
The Fujifilm 150-600 is great
I very much enjoyed using the Fujifilm 150-600, and I will likely buy it. I’m not saying in the video that I won’t because I then always make the purchase, haha. I said it for the 100-400mm in its own video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUVc8NPrBUE (my most viewed review so far, by the way).
Very niche for me, even if I enjoy the occasional wildlife photography. But still worth having in the arsenal.
But I leave you to the video. Please enjoy, and don’t forget to like it and subscribe!

In this video, I also compare the 150-600 against 2 other lenses:
- XF 150-600mm F5.6-8 R LM OIS WR: https://amzn.to/3jgcp5a
- XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR: https://amzn.to/3hO8SuB
- XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR: https://amzn.to/3HYzCmX
They are all very similar, and their focal length can overlap, hence why I chose to compare them. They all have the same features: R (Aperture ring), LM (Linear Motor), OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) and WR (Weather Resistance). And all three can use teleconverters to extend the focal range.
Is there a clear winner? You’re going to have to watch the video to find the answer 😉
So what do you think of the Fujifilm 150-600? Let me know!
See you next time!
