So here I find myself asking if I should dump the 100-200mm f5.6 in favor of the less versatile 250mm f4 prime?

Z9?

I don't have an issue with autofocus speed or FPS because I understand how to photograph ice hockey. I just wished Fuji released a 100-200mm f4 with better build quality. A 200mm f4 would work for me as well. Just don't have the lens selection.

The 250mm from reviews is large, heavy and at the maximum zoom I would like for the rink, this limits where exactly I could photograph.

My 120mm is an excellent lens in comparison (image quality) aside from the moving 'clunk' in the lens when it has no power.

Personally you need a f2.8 lens for it.

This is medium format, f/2.8 does not exist. (divide by 1.25 for full-frame crop factor)

Of course f/2.8 exists.

If the lens selection isn't there aren't you still using the wrong system irrespective of whether you're happy with the AF performance? Surely you'd be having a much better time of it with an R5 or Z9 and a lens that's inherently suited to this application?
