55-250 or 50-230?
6 months ago

I am new to Fuji recently acquiring an X-E2 with 18-55 lens.  My obvious next purchase should be one of the above but which one?  I know the 55-200 is better made but I only need it for travel and portraits and wondered if I could save on weight without compromising on image quality.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you. Alan
