FUJINON XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Vs XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS II

I have searched for comparisons between the XF 55-200mm vs the XC 50-230 but I haven't really learned what is most important to me.   I have the XC 50-230mm and honestly think it may be the best lens per $$ spent that I have ever seen.  It is terrifically sharp and seems to provide great IQ.  I know the XF 55-200 has a faster aperture and faster focus but I haven't been able to get a sense of whether it actually provides better sharpness and image quality compared to its cheaper cousin.

Anybody care to chime in that has compared both lenses?
