Hi...after some advice...I am looking to move from Canon to Fujifilm....my 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

The 16-55 is excellent. Many will agree.

Some prefer the 18-55 for stabilization, but it’s variable aperture and the IQ can’t match either red badge lens.

I'm planning on getting the 50-140 f2.8 to replace the 70-200 but which other would be best to add.

Consider the F2 primes, (23 + 50 or 16 + 35 will make a great set). Otherwise, I think a 35mm 1.4 paired with a 16mm 1.4 is an outstanding travel set. Either are quite versatile and light.

The Sigma is my travel lens when I want to travel light.

Personally I prefer to travel with primes but everyone’s different.

Perhaps start with the super zoom 18-135 and go from there?
