XF 55-200mm

15 months with the Fujinon XF 55-200mm lens | Electric Lemonade

During the 15 or so years I shot motorsport professionally I always used fast aperture telephoto lenses including a 70-200mm f2.8, 300mm f2.8, 600mm f4 etc. I had never considered a 75-300mm lens in the past due to the slow maximum aperture, cheap construction and compromised image quality but when I was building my FujiFilm X-series outfit the Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS telephoto zoom lens made perfect sense. The Fujinon XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS is my workhorse lens for landscapes but the 55-200mm (84-305mm full frame/35mm format equivalent) is ideal when I need a longer reach and also the 4.5 stop image stabilisation, plus the reasonably compact size and weight (580g), make it an excellent option for hand held shots as well……

Getting by with a Fuji X-T1 and two Fuji standard zoom lenses | Tom Grill

Sometimes I really want to travel light and uncomplicated, yet have enough of a focal range to cover most anything I would encounter. When I know my photography will be limited to the outdoors and I will have plenty of light, I often just pack the two standard Fuji zooms, the original 18-55mm and the 55-200mm. This gives me an effective, full frame focal range of 27mm-300mm — enough to cover most anything I would encounter. Both lenses are variable aperture (f/2.8-4 for the 18-55mm, and f/3.5-4.8 for the 55-200mm) so I won’t expect to be using them for any selective focus shots. Nonetheless, on a bright day with distant subjects I would probably be working around a constant f/5.6 anyway……

Fuji XF 55-200 F3.5-4.8 R Review | Rory Prior

When I was a Nikon shooter I was always quite fond of the 70-300 VR zoom lens. It wasn’t technically super sharp at the long end, but it had good range and nice bokeh. After moving over to the Fuji system, for some time the longest AF lens I had was the 60mm f2.4. While it’s actually quite a versatile focal length for the kind of shooting I do, I did find myself wishing for something with more reach on many occasions. Last year I picked up the XC 50-230mm f4.5-6.7 at a heavily discounted price. I shot with it for a bit and it’s actually a pretty good piece of kit for the money, but I found the slow maximum aperture limiting. I also found the overall rendering often not to my liking and given how finicky processing X-trans RAWs can be, you really need good glass to get the best from it. So earlier this year I sold it and bought the XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8. After using it for much of the year, this is my review…..

Xtend your Fuji system: All about that Hood | Rene Delbar

Let’s be honest: next to the ease-of-use of the Fujifilm X cameras, the advantages of their sensor, the performance of the XF glass and the resulting image quality, many X-shooters just love the retro design and handling of the bodies. Right from the start, with the original X100, we got a compact tool to completely enjoy taking pictures. If you’re old enough to have started photography with roll film or 35mm cassettes: just add “again” at the end. In order to augment the “old days” experience, we’ve been adding leather carrying and wrist straps, half cases, thumb grips, soft releases, old-fashioned cable releases… In the end though, you can’t but ask yourself: Why didn’t Fujifilm bring us sexier lens hoods? It started rather well actually. The X100’s fixed 23mm lens comes with a nice metal vented release. That comes handy when using the optical viewfinder, as less of the field of view is obstructed (as long as the openings are well aligned, hence the bayonet mount)……

The 5 Best Fuji Lenses for the X-T1 – A personal recommendation | Mirrorlessons

In late 2013, I wrote a post about my four favourite lenses for the Fujifilm X-mount system. At the time, the list of native lenses available was still short. Now that the range has significantly grown, I decided to write this updated version of my previous article based in part on the experience I’ve gathered using Fujifilm gear over the past year and a half. The most important difference between now and almost two years ago is that today there are more high quality zoom lenses to consider in addition to the excellent primes. There are also a few third party lenses with a native X mount that fit into the equation. The X system is not complete yet but it is certainly growing fast. Right now, I personally own a Fujifilm X-T1 and a XF 35mm f/1.4 in addition to the X100T. I have tried almost every Fujifilm lens by buying them, renting them, or having them loaned to me for a few weeks. Most of the lenses I personally purchased I had to sell to make room for other gear. When the priority is to review photography gear, one inevitably needs to sell the old to fund the new. Sadly, I can’t afford to keep everything, and even more importantly, I am not a collector. The last thing I want is for my gear to sit on a shelf collecting dust when someone could be using it…….

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

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………

Zoom Lenses Vs. Prime Lenses | Sebastian Boatca

Many people asked me one of the oldest questions in Modern Era Photography : is it better to shoot with primes or with zooms? Here are my thoughts about this topic and I remember I have asked this question myself many times. I had strong debates with friends and this topic invited me to search the web, looking for a clear answer. I needed the expertise of professionals, to see what are the pros and cons when working on site with different type of lenses. After I have slowly built my limited experience as a photographer (especially Landscape and Travel), I have felt on my own skin the pros and cons of using both prime and zoom lenses. Of course I have started with a kit lens, my first zoom being EF-S 17-85mm IS USM on a Canon 60D and my first prime was the famous EF 50mm F1.8 II plastic-fantastic lens. As a beginner, I loved the Canon EF zoom more, but the IQ from the nifty-fifty was way better……

18-135mm vs. 50-140mm vs. 55-200mm | Fuji vs. Fuji

With the advent of the 50-140mm f/2.8, Fuji X-Series owners now have 3 ways of reaching beyond 200mm in 35mm equivalence. The first two releases—Fuji’s FUJINON XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS and FUJINON XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS WR—are both geared more towards the casual shooter. Fuji’s latest telephoto zoom offering—complete with premium-looking Red XF Zoom Badge—is the 50-140mm f/2.8, and has a significantly more “pro” feel to it. As we’ll see, this is a common theme for these three lenses, and should serve as an easy way for readers to decide which lens is best for them……

Fuji XF 55-200mm lens review | Mark Richards

The Fuji XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 zoom lens is a bit of a monster compared to other XF lenses – weighing in at 580gm excluding the hood it is no lightweight and is a bulky addition to your X system body. It is, however, quite compact when compared to a zoom lens from a DSLR. In use I have found it to be a remarkable lens capable of producing crisp and clear images across the full zoom range. It is now one of my essential lenses and if I could only have two lenses for the X-T1 this would probably be one of them. The performance of the lens depends to a large extent which body you have it attached to. When used with the X-Pro1 the focus was prone to hunting and was pretty slow and imprecise. It could still produce good images but was weak when trying to capture movement or action. However when married with the X-T1 the performance is totally different – it focusses quickly and accurately with minimal hunting and overall is an excellent lens for catching the action….

Red Kite Stages | Electric Lemonade

Having photographed motorsport professionally for over 15 years with various Canon film and digital SLR cameras I was keen to try the Fujifilm X-T1 for rally photography and ventured deep into Wales last weekend for the Red Kite Stages. My ‘standard’ lens for shooting rallies was always a 70-200mm f2.8 but now that I photograph mainly landscapes I no longer need such fast aperture lenses and use the Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. This relatively inexpensive lens has given some stunning results on both the X-T1 and X-E1 cameras but I wasn’t expecting miracles from it in a welsh forest in the middle of winter. For landscape work I always use the X-T1 in manual focus using the excellent depth of field scale in the electronic viewfinder (EVF) as well as the dual screen mode and focus peaking, so my AF experience with it was limited. I had read a lot on the ‘interweb’ about the X-T1’s failure to lock on to moving subjects in the AF-C continuous focus mode and indeed if the camera is left at the default settings it does have a tendency to hunt for focus and often I found that the car had gone past before it locked on…if at all! There were 5 things I changed that solved this problem, set the AF mode to area, increase the focus area to the maximum size (150%), change the AF-C priority selection from focus priority to release priority, set the drive mode to continuous high (CH 8 frames per second) and finally turn off the face detection…….
