Why this damned sort of "high-qualityPLASTIC, don't tell me for the WEIGHT; FUJI you betray my deep faith in your creed.

See the horrible fusion line under my orange written, only to think of touching it with the hands I'm already sick...

damn lightweight and cheap plastic, who invented to  you?

Would you rather the outer barrel be plastic too so they match?

I actually wish they'd have designed the lens with an internal zoom mechanism. Oh well.
