This is a sharp and contrasty lens, with very little distortion. It is also small and lightweight. It has a 1:2 max ratio, and some would say it’s not “real” macro. I have to say that unless you MUST have 1:1 or 2:1, it’s fine. It doubles as a mighty fine portrait lens, with the same field-of-view as a 90 mm f/4 on a FX camera. I bought it second hand with my X-T2, and thought I could just sell it if it didnt suite me and my photography. Well, it stayed, mainly because it is a charm to work with and gives good results.

Downsides: No dust/weather resistance. No OIS/VR/OS. Focus is not very fast, and manual focus in the Fuji world can be a bit slow (electric/motordriven, not true manual). When using the lens hood, it is difficult to remove the lens cap. One caveat in the Fuji world is how many lenses do NOT use the same filter thread size, and of course this lens is an oddball too. I now have four Fuji lenses, none can use the same filters.
