The 18-55 is a great lens. Fast focus, solid construction. No issues with it and a very convenient range.

The 55-200 is also awesome, but a bit slower focusing. OIS works excellent. Bokeh is very nice when you induce it.

I took some quick snaps in my backyard with the Zeiss Touit 50mm Macro (x-mount version) and the XF 55-200mm that just arrived earlier in the morning. It wasn't the best of light (harsh light mid day) and the sky was a bit hazy. It could have been a fire as I could slightly smell something burning in the background.

I just want to thank those in this thread (and a few many many pages back) for recommending the 55-200mm. I really like the way this lens feels. Also, I was quite impressed with the quality of the photos it rendered. Hooray! Now onto the photos.

NOTE: This shot is blurry (when original size is viewed at 100%) as the branch was swaying in the occasional breeze and I was trying my best to not shake. I was about an inch away from this bud too! Just love how close I can get to fill the frame. Such a blast!

Thank you for your input! I'm leaning on pulling the trigger for the 18-55mm before my trip next month. This should cover the 18-200mm FL with only two lenses. If you follow rumors, the 18-135mm should be officially announced(?) next week. I'm curious about this lens as it also has weather sealing. A few online stores have the 18-55mm on sale ($100 off MSRP) until July 2nd. Hmmm....


Jman13, you mention that the 18-55 is a bit soft on the long end. How does it compare to the 55-200mm @ 55mm?

Wide open, the 55-300 is a little sharper. The 18-55 is fine in the center at 55mm, f/4, but the edges are a little soft. Stopping down sharpens them up pretty well, except for the very extreme corners.

Trying to get as much magnification as possible, I combined my 55/2.8 micro-Nikkor with a full set of Chinese extension tubes, which gives slightly below 2:1 magnification. This is slightly cropped:

From seeing all these photos, I think the 56 1.2 is next on my list after the 18-55mm. :P

How are you guys liking the manual focusing with the XT-1 and alt. glass?

Are there in body focusing aids?
And how about adapters, something cheap to put new Nikon G glass on that body?

I'm really torn between the XT-1 and an Olympus 4/3 body.

Thanks

Manual focus is a breeze on the X-T1. The viewfinder is huge and clear and easy to focus. The camera also has outstanding focus aids, probably the best on any camera.

Easier to show you than explain, but you can see the dual view aid here: http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-x-t1/2/

I find the manual focusing of the XT-1 more enjoyable than the a7. The Dual View in M mode is the icing on the cake with 2 (dual) cherries on top! That alone makes focusing and composing much much easier. Add to it focus peaking and you have a pretty killer combo. With a bevy of Leica R & M glass, manual focusing is not only a breeze, but fun and satisfying.

The only adapters I've used for MF with the XT-1 are the Fujifilm M to X mount and Rayqual R to X mount adapters. I've no experience with Nikkor mount adapters, but you might find some variation in selecting aperture with G lenses. I know some adapters allow aperutre selection with Nikkor G glass, but don't expect exact f/2, f/2.8, f/4, etc.
