View Full Version : Fuji 300mm f8 telephoto

I just ordered a Fuji 300mm telephoto lens from keh.
I was wondering if any one has any experience with this lens. Or if there are any limitations I should be concerned about.
Thank you.

Expect a little bit of chromatic aberration on very high contrast edges, otherwise its a good performer for the weight. If you're scanning the CA cleans up fine in photoshop.

I have the 600mm F12 telephoto and use it on both 4x5 and 5x7. I have the same issue with CA. I'm not a fan of the fact I have to open the lens dark slide to cock the shutter & then re-close the slide in order to make an exposure. None of my other lenses require that extra step.
Image sharpness is pretty good from the lens.

I have a Fujinon 300mm T. Since it's a true telephoto design the nodal point is offset. This makes tilts and swings a little trickier. I usually use back movements because of the somewhat limited image circle. The shutter on mine operates the same as my other LF lenses, nothing abnormal with it.

Ah I just received it, and what a sweet lens it is.
+It's not too big.
+It takes 67mm filters like my 90mm f8 SA and 210mm f5.6 sironar.
+lots of bellow draw left for close-ups.

I am a happy kidney!
