I’m trying this lens again. It focuses a lot better than I remember from back in my early days with it on the X-Pro2. All of the updates to the firmware have greatly improved it for use with the later cameras. These images were a few of my latest evaluations of the lens. Everything looks fine so far, so I have some plans for it this coming spring.
I really wanted the better 80mm macro lens, but it is too heavy so I’m going to try and work this lens into my plans for using mostly a few lighter weight prime lenses on my X-E3 and X-T2 cameras to ease the load on my arthritic hands.
