Just had an email from WEX that my new Fujinon 80mm Macro is to be delivered tomorrow, yippee. Hopefully it will be as good as predicted, I’m sure it will. :2thumbs::2thumbs:

The long awaited 80mm arrived today Saturday, good oh.

Impressions so far are good, hefty beast but so far I like the handling it doesn't feel that heavy, the focusing ring is firm to move but smooth. The Aperture ring feel is a bit on the soft side but ok, I would prefer a more positive click, but hey. focusing is fairly fast, not lightning fast but quite quick! Personally I prefer the handling to that of the 90mm.

A quick couple of shots to try my new toy!



Yes I know about the dust!



And me on a fairly good day. :hide:

I’m with you there Bobby, that’s why I sorta apologised in advance. :biggrin:

I’m finding that Fuji lenses do like a bit of dust especially on the focus rings.

As you can imagine it’s early days yet, but so far I like it better than the 90mm for many reasons not least is the feel in the hand!

Not too shabby, Mike. But I bet it is not nearly as easy to shoot one-handed, as I can do with the 90mm. And since I do not need extreme close-up capabilities, I can do without toting an additional half-pound on my treks.
