    The more I use this lens, the less inclined I am to purchase the up and coming Fuji 200mm prime slated for next year. I shoot mostly outside and in the sun. For those times inside I've got the Fuji 90mm 2.0 which so far has worked out quite well.

    I've lost count of the number of times I've sung the praises of this particular lens. I'm glad you're now one of the converted;)

    Stop it, stop it, stop it. Please, please stop extolling the virtues of this rubbishy, plasticky, cheap lens. All you are doing is push up the price of this awful lens, and then I will never be able to afford to buy a nice clean used one!

    On top of the IQ here, this baby is a lot lighter in the backpack on a long hike and has just that much more reach which can be handy.

    Adorama. One of the best known online retailers of Fuji. It was in their used lens section. I got the box and everything with it. Mint.

    Got mine new from a kit someone bought and didn't want for $175. It's chrome and I believe they are a little sharper than black.;) Sanderlings-3603-2-2.jpg
