Fuji 70-300
5

I got this lens 3 days ago.  I have a full complement of Fuji lenses and love them

I used this continuously indoors and out.

On X-T4 and X-E4

I absolutely love everything about the lens -

- except -

OUTSIDE:

For long shots outside at 300mm zoom,  the 70-300 gets very soft - and almost foggy - and has a funny kind of "grain" that means my copy was not useful for long shots outdoors

My 55-200 was sharper than my copy of the 70-300 for distant subjects at the same distance

The 70-300 lens loses image quality at about 300 meters distance - where the 55-200 still gets clearer shots

My 50-140 blew away the 70-300 at that same distance in crops.

At distances of 50-100 meters the 70-300 was wonderful

INDOORS:

This lens is spectacular.  It is like a wonderful macro at the long end.

Does great in low light.

Could not ask for more.

But - sadly - I needed this for outdoors - so I had to return it.

Maybe I had a bad copy

Early in the production run

I would encourage anyone to try it - because YMMV
