It's a brick: larger than its 100mm fullframe counterparts.

IQ is good, but it's expected given the dimensions of the beast.

 

If it had been more reasonably sized, I would have been tempted but as it stands, it's a major nono for me.

For macro use, I'll stick with the Olympus 60mm f2.8.

Why is 80mm odd?

The Olympus 60mm features exactly the same equivalent focal length (120mm FF).

I think it's actually a great one. I find 100mm FF equiv a bit too short.

There was just an offer for a 2nd hand Touit 50 mm Macro. For 550.- I was tempted, but then I used the dp3 Merrill again and thought "at the other end of that Touit there's just a Fuji"  B)

 

:lol:

Large size

With all that shortcomings of this bronce-age digital camera: the results still make me happy.  :wub:

 

I think, I'll be generous. And leave this lens to the true Fujista-fanboys (not talking about you, thxbb12 ;) )

I don't say it's bad, just uncommon. Maybe they're going to do a couple more macro lenses, and are thus spacing accordingly.
