Fujifilm F800EXR Lens information

At it's widest 25mm, the lens provides an aperture of f3.5 which will be kind of sluggish and not great in low light occasions and you will find it hard to capture good bokeh. You will also need to increase your ISO which causes noisy photos. For the long end, 500mm is fantastic zoom and comes with f5.3 making it pretty sluggish and you will have to use slower shutter speeds.
