FujiFilm F70EXR Lens specs

The F70EXR offers a built-in lens providing a focal range of 27-270mm giving it a 10.0 x zoom which isn't really outstanding however it is likely to be invaluable in a few scenarios.

At the widest 27mm, it features an aperture of f3.3 which will be really slow and not the best for low light events and you will probably find it difficult to get good bokeh. You might also need to raise the ISO leading to noisy images. On the tele end, 270mm is exceptional zoom and comes with f5.6 which is fairly slow and you might need to choose slower shutter speeds.
