The 100-400 is an amazing lens, and hard to find an alternative to. If you bird on fuji it's the one.

The 50-230 will get you halfway there for $100! It's not really quite the birding length, but a 300mm equivalent ain't a bad start for that money, and it balances a lot better on the xt30. It's definitely a fun lens to have at that price, and it travels well. You could even bolt a cheap sony 1.7xTC to the front of the lens to almost hit 400mm, but that’s definitely only for bright days!

I can't comment on how the 400 balances on a xt30, but it's a heft on an XT3 without the grip, and swinging big lenses off tiny bodies is something i got used to a long time ago.
