Re: about new XF55/200: I've seen only now


i just received some old glass that I'll use with the X Pro1

The Tamron 90mm 2.5 and the ext tube for macro and the Pentax 135mm 3.5 to wait till I can get a 55-200mm

They are built like tanks and despite their 20-25 years of age they are still in very good condition

BUT they weight a few tons...

I just would like also to remind you that the fabulous Macro Canon 100mm 2.8 L IS lens is mad eof pure plastic at 1000€ (at launch) and it is really a fabulous lens

Modern technology allows new ways of designs and built.

yes it is not as noble as steel copper or brass but it oftens allow much better performance in terms of comfort and easyness

These were my 3 grains of pepper in the sauce..
