Xt-1 + 55-200 for indoor swim meets
8 months ago

Just received an X-T1 and will be using it  at my daughter's swim meets in the fall of next school year. I was using a D700 with 80-200 mm. It worked fine for that application, but I'd like try using the Fuji next year.

Has anyone tried such a sport using the 55-200 indoors?  I know Fuji plans to bring out a 50-140 f2.8 later this year, but it might be available too late for the start of the swim season. I know the Fuji does low-light fairly well, but I'm not sure the 55-200 can do action under those conditions.

I could just get the 55-200 and try it out and if it doesn't work out, just sell it and get the f2.8 lens later.

Any thoughts or experience with this you can share would be much appreciated.
