Excerpt: I've used it both as a closeup lens for jewelry pictures on website and as a portrait lens. I love that its great quality in a small package. So far I have not had an issue with it so can't answer whats not great yet.
Excerpt: I'm a serious camera enthusiast and among other things, I love to take close-ups of flowers, bugs, etc. I'm headed to South Africa soon, and instead of carting my heavy Nikon, I bought an awesome Fujifilm camera, which saves me a bit of weight. And with this perfect Macro Lens, I'm all set!!
Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro review by Klicko Orange

Summary: This is the best food and portrait lens ever and probably Fuji's best lens for commercial photography. In the day time you only need a big window and probably a small reflector to do your assignment.
Cons: This is the best food and portrait lens ever and probably Fuji's best lens for commercial photography. In the day time you only need a big window and probably a small reflector to do your assignment. Albeit it's a no-no for sports and birding and not sufficient enough as an only lens for wedding ...
Summary: This is a very nice moderate general purpose telephoto with an angle of view equivalent to a 90mm lens on a full frame or 35mm film SLR. It be used as a "macro" lens but "close-up" would be a better description.
Summary: I've waited until firmware 4.0 for the X-T1 to provide a review. This lens seems often maligned but its hard to beat its IQ for the money. It is tack sharp and at f/2.4 its pretty fast. Its a good optic. The biggest knock has been focusing speed and until fm 4.0 it had its moments of hunting about.
Pros: Tack sharp!
Cons: I've waited until firmware 4.0 for the X-T1 to provide a review.
Excerpt: Just got the 60mm macro for my X-T1. I will be using it on an upcoming trip to the Smokey Mountains in May. It's incrediable sharp and quickly focuses. I manual mode it's solid and accurate to focus.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Yikes! If this had been the first lens I purchased, I would have dumped my beloved x-t1. It struggles to find focus the first (or even third) time. While it is slowly racking back and forth through the focal range you are treated to the loud whirring of the focal motor.
Excerpt: I use this lens more for portraiture than macro. The build quality is fantastic, even the lens hood is metal. The magnification isn't the greatest but quite adequate. Manual focus is slow, but I would prefer this for macro work. The aperture ring it actually labeled and the detents are tight.
