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 :)

If you wish to join me in photographing the full moon in all its splendour, with or without this 150-600mm lens, I regularly host a Full Moon Photography event in London.
More info and bookings are available on the dedicated page.

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: (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!

The video

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

In this video, I also compare the 150-600 against 2 other lenses:

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 ;)
