For a long time this was the only native macro option for the X Mount system. Of course, as will be pointed out by many it is not a "real" macro lens because it doesn't have 1:1 magnification, but rather is limited to 1:2. This however is plenty enough for most of people most of the time and unless you are a strictly macro photographer or are required to print large images of super tiny objects, you will be fine, with 24mpix you will have some space to crop.

The canvas those numbers are referring to of course is not your display, but rather your camera's sensor The maximum magnification describes how large can an image on your sensor be relative to the object you are photographing. If maximum magnification of your lens is 1:1 (or 1x), this means that if your object is 1cm long, it can 'burn' a 1cm long image on your sensor

Hello everyone and welcome to my next review. This time I'm tackling the better side of the Fujifilm kit lenses - Fujinon XF 18-55. You can really see the differences between this lens and its XC counterpart (16-50) right at a first glance - it is much sturdier, build out of metal and probably most important of all, it has an aperture ring . Overall, to be honest, there istn't really that much to say about the performance of the lens other than it is really great.
