Lenstip tests the 60mm macro: “it is the best X lens!”

Share

We had no doubt the 60mm macro lens was the best of the first three X lenses launched back in January along the X PRO 1. Lenstip published the full review and said: “Out of three lenses, launched along the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the 2.4/60 model has the best pros to cons ratio“.Here is the pro and cosn list:

Pros:

  • solid and high quality casing,
  • very good resolution in the frame centre,
  • good resolution on the edge of the frame,
  • excellent correction of chromatic aberration,
  • slight spherical aberration,
  • good coma correction,
  • negligible astigmatism,
  • moderate vignetting,
  • good transmission.

Cons:

  • noticeable distortion,
  • unreliable autofocus,
  • work against bright light could have been better.
