My experience: The XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS | Sven Schroeder

By | July 4, 2015

I am doing a lot of landscape and nature photography. So I was thinking about buying a lens with a bit more zoom. There are only two options at the moment (without using adapted lenses). The XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR and the XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. I tried both of them and decided to go with the XF55-200mm. For a nice review of the X50-140mm please read this Review from Jonas Rask and this onefrom Jeff Seltzer. For next year, Fujifilm is planning to release a XF100-400mm – that is definitely on my wishlist :). The XF55-200mm is sure one of Fuji’s cheaper lenses but it is “Made in Japan”. That – for me – still stands for very high quality lenses. The lens is partly made of metal and plastic. The lens mount is metal. The zoom-ring and also the focus ring are very well sized with a good grip on it. They are both smooth to turn. The Zoom Range is 55-200mm wich is equivalent to 80-300mm on a full frame camera. The 7-blade-aperture creates a very nice bokeh………
