Hi...after some advice...I am looking to move from Canon to current Lens that I will be swapping are :-
Canon 70-200 ii f2.8
Canon 17-55 f2.8
Sigma 18-250
Canon 50mm F1.8

I'm planning on getting the 50-140 f2.8 to replace the 70-200 but which other would be best to add. The Sigma is my travel lens when I want to travel light.

I am looking likely at the X-T3 so is the 16-55 an issue not having IS as all my Canon lens have IS so I am used to shooting with that. I would love to get the X-T4 for IS and the screen but it's really pushing my budget.

Would I be better with the 16-55 f2.8 or getting something more like the 16-80 f4 or 18-135 to give me more range for travelling with a single lens. Would either of these be better indoors/low light compared to the non IS f2.8?

Many thanks

Is is great till your subject moves.  The 18-135 is my travel lens and I'm fond of it.  It requires a touch more sharpening than Fuji's other lenses yet for a lens of it's type has surprisingly nice renderings.  I have not tried the 16-80.

Are you aware that there are adapters that will allow you to use your canon lenses on the Fuji body and maintain full AF and IS?  I use the Fringer Pro II adapter and it works well.
