Upload & Sell: Off
Quick history, former Canon 7D shooter for three years. I purchased my Fuji back in October and sold all of my Canon gear in January (including my 70-200 f2.8 IS II). This lens is a joy to have in my bag, it's comparatively small to other zooms of this caliber and is a fantastic performer. Looking at my first images from yesterday I feel that the void left by my Canon 70-200 has been filled. The Canon is a superb lens and in a different league, but for my photography needs the Fuji is a perfect fit (price, size, & quality). I feel that the quality of the XP1 with 55-200 is on par with the quality of my former 7D & 70-200.
The images are sharp, color is amazing, and the contrast is great! The lens may not be as durable, but it's awesome. As HelenaN mentioned, the OIS is fantastic on this lens.
