Why this damned sort of "high-qualityPLASTIC, don't tell me for the WEIGHT; FUJI you betray my deep faith in your creed.

See the horrible fusion line under my orange written, only to think of touching it with the hands I'm already sick...

damn lightweight and cheap plastic, who invented to  you?

Plastic looks ugly, no question about it. But did you expect a $799 55-200 zoom lens to be all metal and IF???

I used to have Canon 17-55/2.8 which was almost all plastic but IQ was better than 17-40 L and 24-105 L lenses.

Considering all other Fuji lenses to date, I think this 55-200 will deliver excellently.

C'mon Peter, don't look at the lens, take pictures with it :)) Until Fuji or Zeiss come up with 135/2.5 prime lens!
