  1. You have to shoot uncompressed RAW, and you have to be up to date with the operating system. RAW file handling is handled by Apple, and that's all they support. I'm not a Lightroom user, but I believe Lightroom has its own RAW file support. If you have compressed RAW files, try installing the Lightroom app and then opening the files. Apologies, some of this may be wrong, I'm not an expert. But 100% Apple natively supports only uncompressed RAW files from Fuji.
  2. Yes, it works very well with both. I can't see any quality change with the 80mm, but it allows you to be further from the subject, which is a big advantage!
  3. This is a great place to start: https://blog.thomasfitzgeraldphotography.com/blog/2018/6/oommkng8fz6w43r672933zukui644i
  4. I know the 80mm is expensive, but it's in the same order of pricing as the Nikon 105. It's also the best 1:1 lens I have ever used. I have used the Minolta and Sony ones extensively and the Nikon. The stabilization is superb and makes a real difference. In addition, coupled with the 1.4x extender, you have a 180mm reach in FF terms, which gives you lots and lots of working room. Finally, unlike other macro lenses, it's no slouch in terms of focusing speed in non-macro circumstances, which makes it a pretty decent telephoto lens. Finally, it's by far the sharpest macro I have ever used, and it's probably the sharpest Fuji lens out there. I sold my 90mm F/2 after I got the macro. I'll post some samples in this thread.
  5. Hi Claude It's possible you have the same issue I had, which is to choose between prime or zoom lenses. If you take your zooms out, you have a great prime collection. If you take out the wide prime lenses, you are completely covered by the zooms. I was in the same situation, and I never knew which lens to use. As far as the 80mm, it's a wonderful lens, and I sold my 90 because it doesn't get any use anymore, despite being, up to now, my favorite. Mike
