Re: Buying an emount f/2.8 zoom?

You use the 55-200 mainly indoors, thats why it's slow aperture doesnt bother you? Weird

I'd be all over a fast and stabilized 16-80, a 55-150 is Not exactly what i was looking for.
But could still end up being the next best thing if there won't be a good normalzoom. There are enough good lenses between 16mm and 60mm available.

Who said they usually use the 55-210 indoors?

The Op said that.

"I have the 55-210 zoom and usually use in outdoors during the day, so its f/4.5-6.3 doesn't bother me. I usually don't need a fast zoom outdoors."

Maybe worded a little funny, but he definitely said he uses it primarily outdoors.

I agree though, I don't want a large, bulky native telezoom. The 55-210 is perfect for what I use it for. A fast normal zoom would be beneficial though, again...as long as it isn't too bulky.
