Verdict

The Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro is an impressive lens in many ways. It comes packed with a ton of features, but also in a huge and heavy housing. Given the size, the weight and last but not least the price, the build quality is a bit disappointing, because of the number of plastic parts, even though everything is tightly assembled.

Optically, the lens delivers very good results. The native distortion is quite low and well handled by the automatic software correction. Vignetting is on the high side, though, even after software correction is applied.

In terms of image resolution, there is nothing to complain about. The lens delivers excellent resolution in the image center straight from the maximum aperture and across the whole frame at f/5.6.

The lens really shines when it comes to bokeh and smooth background blur. On top, the amount of bokeh fringing is very low.

So, in summary, definitely "highly recommended"... if you don't mind the size and the weight.
