Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Lens

  • Summary: Fujifilm has already established itself as a formidable entity when it comes to mirrorless cameras . The X-Pro 1 and X-E1 are complimented by some of the best lenses we have seen in the entire mirrorless segment, but the only drawback (as some think) happens to be the lack of any zoom lenses.
  • Pros: Extremely well-built, Fast and accurate focussing, Effective Image Stabilization, Optical design suppresses fringing very well
  • Cons: Barrel extends significantly while zooming, Expensive when compared to same lens by other manufacturers, Lens barrel extends beyond the X-E1 body, making it difficult to stabilize on flat surfaces

  • Conclusion: There's not much bad to say about the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS—it's one of the best 55-200mm lenses we've seen, but it is on the pricey side.
  • Pros: Edge-to-edge sharpness wide open. Wider aperture than competing lenses. Optical stabilization system. Sturdy build.
  • Cons: Pricey. Lacks weather sealing.

  • Summary: The XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is a relatively portable, well-made telephoto zoom that delivers consistently fine images. Focusing is essentially silent and reasonably fast, at least with static subjects, and the optical image stabilisation works very well.
  • Pros: Impressive image quality at all settings, Exceptionally low chromatic aberration, Minimal distortion or vignetting visible in normal use ( via software correction), Essentially silent autofocus, Very effective image stabilization, Convenient on-lens aperture ring, Solid construction
  • Cons: Images can look a little soft on the pixel level (due to software correction of pincushion distortion), Autofocus not as fast as its peers, Expensive

  • Excerpt: In April 2013, this 55–200mm f/3.5–4.8 OIS zoom ($699, street) joined the Fujinon 18–55mm f/2.8–4 zoom ($699, street) to round out a relatively fast and useful XF-series optical system for Fujifilm’s impressive X-series of ILCs. How good is it?

  • Excerpt: Fuji aloitti X-järjestelmänsä rakentamisen poikkeavasti kolmella kiinteäpolttovälisellä objektiivilla pakettizoomin sijaan. Tämä on epätavallista nykyään, sillä lähes poikkeuksetta uuden kamerajärjestelmän ensimmäinen objektiivi on n.
