XF 70-300mm or XF 50-140mm

Hello everyone,

I currently own the Samyang 12mm f2, and Fujis 23mm f2, 35mm f1.4, 56mm f1.2, and the 80mm f2.8 macro lenses. I have rather uncovered the telephoto range, and I like to shot landscapes and cityscapes when I have the opportunity. I’ll be travelling to Montreal for the first time in late december, where I’ll be on holidays: time for photographing the city and near interesting places.

Right now I can have the XF70-300mm for $800, and the XF50-140mm for $1230 (on sale in Colombia, where I live). I have read good opinions on both oh them, with the red badge zoom topping on the marks. Nevertheless, their focal range is significantly different. The 70-300 would even allow tring bird wildlife photography, which very appelaing to me. Given the rave and price of the 50-140mm, it is also very attractive.

Any comments will be very appreciated.

Best regards.
