As far as I know, no one ever succeeded in designing good quality lenses over 4x range. The M43 system is based on a smaller sensor, and this makes the standard maximum resolution inferior if compared to an APS-C or FF sensor.

IMOO I would not chose anything over a 3X excursion.

It very mach depends on your personal needs, of course.

well the Nikon Z 24-200 gets great reviews in the Z forum. Similarly the RF 24-240 seems good for an all around lens. They are both for larger sensors than our Fuji and I think we do need an update on the aging 18-135..

You are likely better served by buying a z5 and 24-200 kit rather than waiting for one from Fuji. I’ve been thinking the same thing and reaching that conclusion. A FF system for zooms and a Fuji for small primes sounds like a really flexible set up.

I wouldn’t go to FF… apart from that zoom lens and maybe some thinner DOF, I don’t see any other benefit in FF for my amateur needs. Too big and heavy for me. On the contrary if I was to have two systems one for zooms and one for primes, I would look into smaller sensor like m43 and 1” which have great zoom options. I am now testing an RX10 IV which has an unbelievably sharp lens and the best CAF I have ever seen. Unfortunately it lacks the Fuji user experience…
