This is my inaugural review of a camera lens, and I have honestly never done an article on this before. Therefore, my Malaysia FujiFilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR review is here.
Again, I have always been a DSLR user from the early days, and only in November of 2021 I decided to make that crucial switch to a mirrorless FujiFilm camera.
Malaysia FujiFilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR Review
It has been around eight months since I was using the FujiFilm X-S10, and when I got it, I started with the FUJINON XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS.
On top of that, I also got the FUJINON XF70-300mm f4-5.6 R LM OIS WR and the mighty FUJINON XF2X TC WR. All of this is just to compliment my set-up.
I was using the mirrorless system mainly for my bird photography, but not that I am a professional, just a casual user in Malaysia.
Therefore, after using the 70-300mm with the x2 TC, I needed more focal length, so in July 2022, I made another massive change for the FujiFilm XF 150-600mm.

Receiving it on the 12th of July, I couldn’t wait to test it out, but due to work, I prolonged the desire to take a day off just for this. I put the FujiFilm XF 150-600mm box next to my work table and continued working.
I only managed to go out on the 15th night at about 8.30 PM to see the super full moon rising. Immediately, I remembered that I wanted to test the lens and set it up as fast as possible.

Below are random photos taken using the zoom lens and with the X2 TC.

I guess I will be testing the lens out this coming weekend at the Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race 2022, as I will be there covering the event for my birding website.
Once I am back and have time, I will create another article to share more photos and feedback on the Malaysia FujiFilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR review that I will do.
