when compared to other x lenses?

I`m not saying my lens is bad but it`s hard to use it when my fuji primes are just so darned good. It`s not as if fuji can`t make a decent zoom because my 55-200 is superb. Not surprising really I suppose because in general any zoom that has anything approaching near WA usually has a compromise somewhere. It`s a bit like my Canon 24-105, very convenient but not a patch on even the lower end primes.

I can hear some of you saying " get a life" but for me the fuji system is/was all about the IQ (as well as the lower weight)

I remember having to check the exif data when I first used the Contax MM 35-70 on a FF Canon, couldn`t believe the quality throughout.

any views?
