Long lens love affair – Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 | Andy Gallacher

It was those numbers that initially put me off buying the Fuji XF 55-200 lens. I’d worked a lot with the Canon 70-200 MkII previously and with a constant f/2.8 aperture surely this lighter and much cheaper Fuji couldn’t compare? The purchase was made back when I still had the X-Pro1 and a trip to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador was booked. In the end it was the 55-200 that made it a memorable visit.

But it’s when I paired the lens with the X-T1 that it really began to shine.
