Excerpt: This zoom delivers good optical quality for the price. It is a little bit heavy comparing to the weight of the X-T1 body, but nothing to be compared with what would weight the same in full frame. The stabilization works great.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Another great Fujinon lens. Very sharp, great Bokeh. Can almost double as a macro lens due to close focus distance at 200mm. I found the autofocus to be a little "hesitant" in certain situations, particularly in scenes with lack of contrast between elements. Focus "peaking" helps in this circumstance. Would not hesitate to purchase again.
Excerpt: With this lens now I can leave the heavy DSLR at home and only carry my X-T1 with the 18-55 and this one. I use it for a wide range of situations, from events to portraits and sports, it always performed very well, indoor and outdoor. Very sharp lens with good color rendering, minimal distorsion, and the OIS is very effective. The zoom ring is very stiff, but it seems to be getting a little better after few weeks of not so heavy use. built quality is very good.
Excerpt: Tack sharp, compact & great focal length (80-300m), i would compare it to my Canon 70-200mm f/4L + 1.4x Converter for sharpness & speed. I actually think the OIS (Image Stabilisation) on the Fuji, is (dare i say) better than the Canon!!! there it is i have said it!! I was considering the 18-135mm however i want the extra reach, and i have absolutely zero regrets, this lens is awesome for the price/size/weight!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: sharp, lightweight for its size, very well built, smooth focus ring. lens hood is large but lightweight as well and reverses for storage. very happy with purchase especially since it was on sale for $100 off.
