Fujifilm 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 overview

  • 1Description

The XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Lens from FUJIFILM is a telephoto zoom lens for the FUJIFILM X-series mirrorless cameras. It offers a 35mm focal length equivalency of 84-305mm, providing portrait length to super telephoto capabilities. The Minimum focus distance is 3.6' at all focal lengths, enabling telephoto close-ups.  With OIS Image Stabilization, it provides up to 4.5 stops of shake correction for sharp imaging in low light situations or when utilizing its longest focal lengths. Two linear motors facilitate high speed auto focus (0.28 seconds) as well as smooth and quiet operation, which is important for stability at long focal lengths, and when shooting video.

The lens configuration includes one aspherical element, two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens elements, and one Super ED element to Minimize chromatic aberration and provide corner to corner sharpness throughout the zoom range. FUJIFILM's HT-EBC lens coating controls reflections and substantially reduces flare and ghosting.

The lens barrel itself is constructed of high quality metal and includes both a focusing ring and aperture ring for easy adjustments while keeping your eye on the subject. The aperture ring offers 17 stops in 1/3 EV steps, and the steps are click stops for accurate manual control.

    Fujifilm 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 reviews

    XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 203.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a surprise! I purchased the Fuji X-E1 after falling in love with the X100. I have loved everything about the X-E1 thus far including the kit 18-55 lens. Now the 55-200 comes out and I'm thinking, this can't be that good can it? But I'm intrigued because of the results from everything else I've tried. Dang it, if they didn't do it again! This is a VERY usable lens which is tack sharp. The Bokeh is as to be expected from an APS C sized sensor and it handles very nicely. I was concerned about how it would perform next to my Nikon 70-200 2.8.... and I have to say, I'm very impressed. It might actually be sharper. Dang you Fuji, you did it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Performer This lens is a nice complement to the remarkable 18-55mm kit lens for the FujiFilm X-Trans cameras. My sample is sharp wide open at all focal lengths, with decent if not spectacular bokeh. The image stabilization is effective: I have no difficulty shooting at 1/(focal length), and can usually get away with one and sometimes two stops slower than that. Autofocus is fast and accurate on the X-T1 and X-E2 bodies I have used with it. Build quality is good. Images shot with it don't seem to have quite the color and contrast punch of the 18-55mm, but if you shoot raw it's easy to make up for that in post-processing. All-in-all, a very solid performer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and Well Built I am slowly building an X mount system around the Fuji XE-1 and plan to move up to the XT-1. Results so far with the 55-200 mm lens exceeds my expectations. Not only is it sharp throughout its focal range, but the quality of build is impressive. I use the lens mostly for candid street photography where I don't want my subjects to be aware of my presence. But I also have been using it with excellent results for landscape and wildlife photos, as it has the equivalency of 305 mm. My only complaint is with the stubborn lens cap which I've replaced with a third party item, and with the lens hood which is difficult to quickly put on and take off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality! I have a love hate relationship with my Fuji X-E1, but I just love everything about their lens. They are an amazing value despite some who complain about their price. They are well worth it and some of the best glass you can get for any mirror-less camera.The new XF 55-200 is built out of the highest quality materias. Feels great in the and and does not feel front heavy at all. It has the best feeling Apature ring of any of the variable XF that Fuji has made so far, and the zoom has the right amont of resistance. Stabilization is very active and works wonders keeping every shot amazingly sharp in every situation. This is my new outdoors lens. From portraits to shooting wildlife its well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel lens that I would buy again. I am quite happy with the Fuji XF 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 lens that I just purchased mainly for travel. I already own a XF 50-140 f/2.8 lens which is fantastic however the 55-200 is almost 1/2 the weight, is 2.3 inches shorter and 1/3 inches less in diameter. Thus making it a better fit for travel by reducing the weight by about a pound, and fitting better in my backpack, a Lowepro Photo Hatchback Series BP 250 AW II. Based on a 35mm format it is almost 100mm longer focal length. Given its smaller size I can easily fit my Fuji X-T2, with hand grip and kit lens, a Fuji 14mm lens, the 55-200, and my older Fuji XE-1 all in the camera storage area.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much, much better than expected I have been using high end 70-200mm lenses for several years. They provide the reach I need on many occasions. In moving to the Fuji X system from DSLR I thought my mid-range zoom options would be worse than DSLR lenses. I was really surprised when I started using this lens...the IQ is excellent and a great complement to the Fuji X-E2. Based on many head-to-head comparisons with my equivalent high-end DSLR zoom, the Fuji 55-200 takes better in-camera jpg photos that are tack sharp. I think this is the benefit of the Fuji X-system equipment compatibility, as well as their exceptional optics. Either way, this Fuji lens works better for me than any other equivalent lens...and at less than a third the cost. If you have any doubts, forget about them and buy this lens. You won't be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb long zoom I have an X-E2 (previously I had an X-Pro1)and shoot both landscapes and portraits with this superb lens. Mechanically and optically it is first class, probably the best zoom lens I have owned since becoming a serious photographer in 1980 (the only other zoom I've owned that has really impressed me is the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8). The distortion across the full range is remarkably low, and the sharpness is excellent even wide open. The AF is not ultrafast, it is true, but since I don't shoot fast-moving subjects, this is not an issue. I highly recommend this lens to anyone with a Fujifilm X-series camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice lens I purchased this Fuji lens as a replacement for my XC 50-230 lens while it was on sale. I normally shoot only with prime lenses, but once in a while I need the focal range of this kind of zoom lens. It certainly features a better build quality than the XC, but I can't say that the image quality is that much better than the XC, at least for me as an occasional user. I also have experienced some autofocus issues, which have been referenced by a couple of other owners here on B&H. All of that said, I likely won't return the lens, as the image quality is what you would expect from Fuji. Certainly not as sharp as, say, the 16mm 1.4 prime, but very good nonetheless.
