Fuji XF 100-400mm WR: Initial impressions and real world galleries from Fuji’s first super-telephoto zoom

Fuji fans have been waiting for a super-telephoto offering for their X-mount bodies for a long time! It was more than two years ago that Fuji teased us with the promise of a "Super Telephoto Zoom Lens" to be coming at some point perhaps in 2015, and there have been many of us patiently awaiting its arrival ever since.

In January of this year we were finally alerted to the existence of the Fuji 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6, and a few months later were treated to a sample by the kind folks at Fujifilm. Elated, I paired it up with our X-T1 sample complete with battery grip and headed out for a long weekend of shooting to see what I could reel in with the generous 152-609mm equivalent zoom range.

(Spoiler alert: I hope they don't ask for it back!)
