Something we've never seen before: LensRentals 'eviscerates' the Fujifilm XF55-200mm F3.5-4.8R LM OIS
Into 'the land of Fuji'
Roger and Aaron over at LensRentals have been tearing lenses down again. This week they've 'eviscerated' Fujifilm's XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8R LM OIS - the company's mid-price tele zoom. The name may be redolent of a '$100 extra for a dual lens kit' zoom but inside they found surprises at every turn. And not just with regards the number of screws holding the thing together.
The 55-200mm doesn't have the fastest aperture range but it's a fast-focusing, sharp telephoto zoom that we've always been impressed with. Fujifilm has often hinted that the X Series was partly an opportunity for its lens designers to show-off what they could do, so it's probably to be expected that the designs are quite creative.
