The Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R offers a classic 90mm macro focal length and a fairly fast maximum aperture of f/2.4 that produces beautiful background bokeh. Optically it’s an almost perfect lens, only suffering a little wide-open in the centre and at the edges. On the negative side, it only offers 0.5x magnification, rather than 1:1, the auto-focusing is the slowest of any XF lens in the now extensive line-up, and fitting the lens-hood almost doubles the length of the lens.

The Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R lens is remarkably sharp in both the image centre and at the edges of the frame virtually when stopped down to f/4 – it is a little soft from f/2.4-f/4. Vignetting is practically a non-issue and chromatic aberrations are very well-controlled.

Officially priced at £599.99 / $649.99 but with a lower street price due to its age, the Fujifilm XF 60mm F2.4 R can be used for studio portraiture as well as macro photography, making it a viable alternative to the popular but much more expensive XF 56mm f/1.2 for some photographers.
