Macro lenses have a long-standing image as deeply specialised tools. In part, for good reason. Not just any optic provides 1:1 magnification – but a product that does shouldn’t have to serve such a singular purpose, either. The very best of macro glass remains versatile across a broader range of subjects. XF 30mm F2.8 R LM WR Macro may just top them all.

With an equivalent focal length of 46mm, X Series’ new addition can be seen as a standard prime with a huge plus. Not only does the APS-C sensor’s crop factor extend the reach of the lens, but it also increases the macro scale, too. Photographic subjects appear 1.5x larger on the sensor than their real-life counterparts. To offer some perspective, any detail from 1.2cm from the lens element to infinity can be documented. That’s a whole world of creation.

Yet, XF 3 0mm F2.8 doesn’t stop there. To the benefit of image makers working in all conditions, the lens is dust and moisture-resistant, and capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -10°C. There’s also its linear motor design to consider. It drives an Inner Focus system, resulting in autofocus acquisition in as little as 0.02 seconds. While this typically means a bulkier lens, this optic remains a highly compact 69.5mm, weighing just 195g.

Finally, serving as the perfect companion for latest high-resolution bodies from X Series, XF 30mm F2.8 exemplifies optical precision. Various forms of aberration are minimised, leaving only fine images, thanks to the design of 11 elements in nine groups – including three aspherical elements and two ED elements. Flattering portraits, scenic landscapes, bustling street scenes and more are all well within the capabilities of the macro lens. But proceed with caution: you may never want to put it down.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
