XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro
Creating stunning macro images requires a deep understanding of the delicate balance between being too close and too far away. With an effective focal length of 122mm*, XF80mmF2.8 makes it easier to frame the perfect composition without affecting the scene in front of you. You can also attach XF1.4X TC WR or XF2X TC WR Teleconverter for even more reach. This means resting butterflies can lay undisturbed and delicate frost can remain untouched while you focus on creating something beautiful.
*In the 35mm format.

XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro
Macro images allow us to tell wonderfully intricate stories of an extraordinary world that would otherwise go unseen. With its 16 optical elements set in 12 groups, including one Super ED lens, three ED lenses, and one aspherical element, XF80mmF2.8 lets you write the next chapters of your image-making story in exceptional detail for truly remarkable results.
As a subject moves closer to the lens and depth-of-field becomes more shallow, precise focus becomes increasingly important. XF80mmF2.8’s inner-focusing system separates the lens groups into front and rear focusing elements and uses linear motors to drive them quickly into position. The result is fast and precise autofocus, near or far. With all movement internal, the front element stays in place so there is minimum disturbance.
Macro photography is all about fine details, so even the slightest blur can ruin a great image. When working at such close quarters, camera shake and shift blur, which increase in effect as magnification increases, can be challenging to navigate for even the most seasoned photographers. This is why XF80mmF2.8 is equipped with an accelerometer and five-stop Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which work together to provide shift blur detection and minimize the effects of camera shake.
Once you begin to explore macro photography with XF80mmF2.8, you won’t want to stop. That’s why this lens has been designed to be weather-resistant and function in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C). It also benefits from a fluorine coating on the front element to repel water and dirt. This means that whether it’s a drop of rain hitting the ground or a snowflake settling on a leaf, XF80mmF2.8 will brave the elements to help you make the tiniest moments your biggest triumphs.
Takes my creativity to where I want it to be
The optical image stabilization, its beautiful one-to-one magnification macro factor, and its weather-resistant structure are all wonderful.
A lens that allows me to capture details in the best way that I can
It is critical for me to shoot small details of nature in the best way that I can.
I've used a lot of macro lenses, but I must say that the XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens is an engineering wonder.
