Excerpt: I have been using high end 70-200mm lenses for several years. They provide the "reach" I need on many occasions. In moving to the Fuji X system from DSLR I thought my mid-range zoom options would be worse than DSLR lenses. I was really surprised when I started using this lens..
Excerpt: I us a Fujifilm X-trans system for travel and for street photography. All of my other lenses are primes (14mm, 23mm, 35mm) but I often carry this lens to increase the system's versatility by covering longer focal lengths. Image quality is very good.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Good Image quality, Good value, Image stabilization, Lightweight, Rugged, Small Size For A 55-200mm, Strong Construction
Cons: Af In Low Contrast Light, Slow Mirrorless Af
Excerpt: I needed a telephoto lens for my XE2 for train photography and other times you need extra reach. I read all the reviews, many of which mention it being pretty big and not super sharp at various settings. First surprise was that the size is not oppressive and is actually not bad to handle at all.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: In spite of the Fuji autofocus system is slow, this tele zoom offers very sharp images with very low distortions. Chromatic aberration is really very well resolved. It is obvious that the system is not the best for taking action pictures but it is ideal for meditated photography.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
