Showcase XC 50-230 Samples

Feb 3, 2012
I've been looking at this lens because I'd like to have something long for the Fujis and I suspect this would handle better on the XE1 than the 55-200.
Because of the weight? I had the 55-200 with the XE-2 and it was absolutely a dream to handle. Granted, I was coming from a D7000 with an 80-200 AFS, so it was featherweight at that point. :D

My wife and I lived in Charlottesville back in the mid-80s. We used to exit I-64 at Lexington and hop on Lee Highway, cutting through Stuarts Draft up to Waynesboro. I remember a burger place that was there that had a funny name on the sign. The Meadow Muffin, maybe?
You got me there. We arrived in 1986 And i have no memory of the aforementioned “Muffin”. We probably went to waynesboro via 64 or 340

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!
