This series made by Fuji comes in 180, 240, 300, and 360mm. Fuji had plans for even longer focal lengths but I do not know if they were actually made. These lenses are superchromatic and are optimized for the 1:1 to 1:5 reproduction ratio. They perform respectably well at infinitely if stopped down and come in a relatively small package considering their focal lengths. The latest models have a different multi-coating but I have not noticed a difference in flare control. There is a rumor that Fuji will discontinue the series.
