Going to post a few shots from today's trip to the Brevard Zoo in Viera, Florida. Sunny and about 77 degrees today. Mostly with X-Pro2 and 55-200, but the last one was my X-E2.

Wonderful series. The Fuji 55-200 is a lens I wish all companies would make but very few do. It's the almost "Pro" build / feature set with a variable and or slower than f/2.8 (but faster than f/5.6) for the rest of us that don't need or want to afford the big f/2.8 zooms.

I remember when I had my Fuji X-E1 and the 55-200. That lens was one of hte first ones that sold me on the awesomeness of mirrorless.

I still look back in fondness on the IQ of the X-E1. If I didn't love my PEN-F so much....I do lust a bit over the XPro-2 and the X-E3. I think Fuji finally has the system performance with those cameras in a place where I could consider them acceptable to me. Then the X100F...another lust camera for me as well.

then I think about what I have with m43...expecially the great primes like the 45/1.8 and 75/1.8 and it pulls me back from the brink....for a while, anyway.

Anyway, really....no surprise about the quality of the 55-200, especially in your hands. I'm interested to hear about your experiences with the 100-400mm.

I thought long and hard before getting the X-E3. Phase AF in low light, low contrast situations, and the more direct shooting experience I get with my X70 tipped the scales to the X-E3 over the Pen F for me. But both are very good.

I'm holding out hope that the PEN-F II will have a PDAF sensor like on the EM1 series. If not, then I'm really going to seriously think about looking at a Fuji setup.

How did my backpack get so heavy? I thought mirrorless was lightweight!
Really enjoying my Samyang fisheye - it's the third FE lens I've owned, a Peleng on 4/3 and a previous Samyang on my first flirtation with m4/3. So I knew what I was getting. 👍
Ok, I'm all Creative Clouded out right now.... what a waste of time.
So Fuji's traditional spring announcement includes... only the XT30? Helps my GAS to be sure!
This week's weather has been snow, hail, rain, sun, sleet... what next, frogs? 🐸
