Great macro lens for Fuji x
William Schmitt, Amazon

Summary: I bought this to use as a macro lens. It is great for that. It is sharp. The auto focus is relatively slow, but not a problem on a tripod for macro. As a gp lens not so much. The Fuji zooms do the job much better.
Summary: This lens is optically sharp! My favorite lens on the XE1. The only complaint would be the slow/hunting autofocus at times, but since I manually focus most of my lenses this is not an issue for me.
Excerpt: The XF 60mm 2.4 is not as talked about as the 56mm 1.2, however it has many things going for it. It is significantly less expensive, and smaller, and it does macro. It is very sharp, and at wide open f2.4, certainly fast enough. You can get very nice isolation with the short depth of field, and many people say good things of its bokeh. Auto focus is slow, but not that bad, and it can hunt for focus in low light. If you can accept these limitations, it's a great lens.
Excerpt: Other reviews say the focus is slow, I agree. Either have very steady hands or a tripod! With that being said, the lens is very pleasing, both for up close shots (yes you are not getting "MACRO" as in perhaps Canon or Nikon Macro lenses, but it still does a decent job. It is also nice in portrait situations...
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I like this lens, and for the price I still feel it is a good deal, but there are a few issues that may cause it to get limited use. Not being a true macro lens, magnification is 1: 2, I find myself wanting more. Maybe my acceptance will grow with time, but I find myself thinking for my uses one of the faster primes might have been a better purchase.
Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: This lens is great as all others in XF line. Auto focus has improved with latest FW but still gets lost in poor-light conditions. As portrait lens, this is a true winner. It just can't get much better than this considering price level. I use this lens also as macro lens with Raynox M-250. Perfect for flowers and small creatures. Now I need to wait for prices drop of new Fujinon primes(56, 23, 14 and 10-24) but until then, I'm very happy with this one.
