50~230mm any good?
Feb 20, 2014

I'm thinking of getting a X-T1 with 18~55 soon, then would probably get the 55~200.

I have just been offerred a X-E1 with 18~55 for £689 and a FREE 50~230. That's a good idea isn't it? I'd still buy a X-T1 body, then have the X-E1 as a back-up or a second body. So basically I'd get two bodies insead of one, but have the 50~230 instead of the 55~200. Cost is about the same.

I have not used any of this gear so far. I'm waiting until I go to the Photography Show at the NEC at the beginning of March. Any feedback would be welcome.
