Verdict

The Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro is the best of the three initial lenses for the X-mount. The image quality is already very good at f/2.4 and bitingly sharp around f/4. The resolution remains impressive till about f/11. If you are into macro photography f/16 may be an option but better avoid f/22 due to heavy diffraction effects. Lateral CAs are very low and not relevant from a real world perspective. The auto-corrected distortion is, of course, pretty low whereas the original pincushion distortion is a bit high for such a lens. You may be able to spot some vignetting at f/2.4 but the issue is already gone from f/3.2 onward. The bokeh (out-of-focus blur) is generally very smooth although the highlight rendition could be a little better. There's a bit of bokeh fringing at large aperture but we've certainly seen worse here.

The build quality of the Fujinon is very high - all relevant body parts are made of metal and there's no wobbling whatsoever. Considering its fairly large max. aperture, it is a very small lens - much smaller than the comparable Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 ED macro (Samsung NX mount) for instance. Unfortunately the AF speed is on the slow side which relates to the long focus path in combination with the only moderately fast AF micro motor. Action photography is certainly not a playground for this lens. However, regarding the sum of its optical and mechanical qualities we are still confident in issuing our "Highly Recommended" badge here!
