I have an XT1 on the way next week with the 18-55 and am pretty excited. I've shot Canon since 1975 and have become disappointed with their direction the past few years especially with their lack of low ISO DR improvement and their emphasis on video.  I do like to shoot telephotos for compression and extracting elements from a scene and my 70-200f4LIS is on my 7D the most.  I'd appreciate comments from anyone regarding the IQ of the 55-200 compared to any of the 70-200's from Canon or Nikon if you have dual system experience.  AF is not as critical as this would be used mostly for static subjects.

Thanks,

Bob
