Wide angle (to normal) magic. Long lenses, not so much.

Re: Wide angle (to normal) magic. Long lenses, not so much.

What you say has merit but, every time I reach in my bag and haul out my Canon 60D with it's 70-300 mm lens I put it back and grab my XE1.  The weight difference even with the new 55-200mm is significant for me. True, the new zoom looks odd when extended but I can live with it. After all, I'm looking through the viewfinder and don't see the way the camera looks anyway.

I do appreciate your taking the time to do the evaluation of the lens system.
