fuji zoom lens advice
Jun 23, 2014

I currently have a 18-55 xf zoom lens on an EX-1 and am very pleased with the lens.  I want to get a more powerful zoom and here is where my questions are.

The xf55-200 is already available and is supposed to be a good lens.   The xc5-230 is available,  cheaper,  lighter but still pretty good with a greater focal length.

Is the current new offerin, the  18-135 zoom,  better than the 18-55 at the same focal lengths,  and is it better than the 55-200 over the 55-135 range.

I am asking because I want to spend wisely and once for a lens.  I don't want to overlap focal lengths if at all possible.

And I actually am hoping that the "super telephoto" on the fujifilm lens road map will complement what ever set of zooms I will end up having.  Any insight and suggestions will be appreciated.  Thanks   Norm
