views on the 55-200 please

I was out walking along the cliffs today with my xpro 1 + 14+35 images from them were as usual superb.

To stay light I just threw my knock about Nikon D3100 +18-200 zoom on the other shoulder because I know the area and a long lens is needed at times. don`t get me wrong, the Nikon zoom for the money and as a stay in the car lens does the job but when I look at the images taken in the same light on the same day the images are chalk and cheese.

I could carry my 5D3 +70-300 which is a decent lens but then as far as weight goes the tale wags the dog and out weighs the nice light xpro1.

I`m not really in the market for another longish zoom but the 55-200 fuji would complete a one camera light walk a bout.

I have the 18-55Fuji but as good as it is it aint like the primes obviously. Probably answering my own question here but what do 55-200 users think in real honesty regarding the IQ, weight and ergonomics.

Thanks

Dave
