I want to purchase a lens to expand the reach of my Fuji kit without adding a lot of weight to what I carry when traveling. I am looking at the 18-135 mm lens or 55-200 mm lens. Or I may put this off and wait for some new lens from Fuji. I currently have the Fuji X-T2 camera body and these lenses: 18-55 mm f/2.8-4 kit lens 35 mm f/2 lens 10-24 mm f/4 wide angle lens I have read mixed reviews of the 18-135 mm lens, especially when paired with the X-T2. The advantage of getting the 18-135 lens would be the freedom to take this lens with either the wide angle or 35 mm for a lighter travel kit. If I buy the 55-200mm, I might end up carrying the 18-55, 55-200 and the wide angle lens (since I like to shoot landscapes). I am used to using a Canon camera with a variety of lenses. I have the Canon 70D and 4ti camera bodies with an array of lenses. The lenses I tend to use most often are: 18-135 mm STM 10-18 mm or 10-22 mm 28 mm But when I want to photograph wildlife or BIF - or isolate elements of a landscape - I like using my 70-300mm lens or the newer Tamron 18-270 mm lens. I am going to be traveling in Europe for several weeks and part of that time will be on a river cruise where I need to carry whatever photography gear I want to use in port. My current solution has been to take the Fuji and one of the Canon cameras, keeping a lens with longer reach on the Canon. Any suggestions from people who have used the 18-135 mm and/or 55-200 mm lens? Thank you in advance! (I should perhaps add that I shoot RAW and jpg, so I am willing to do some post processing on the Fuji images but haven't felt the need to do much with the jpg files yet.)

Hello out there, my name is René van der Voorden, and I´m a professional concert photographer. I love shooting concert since about 35 years. Last year I sold my 20.000 € Nikon equipment with Nikon D3s and a lot of expensive glasses. It was not an easy step, but at least I´ve done it. From last year on the Fujifilm X-T1 is my new tool for this work. The High-ISO performance on the D3S is still a little bit better, but there are more advantages for me with the X-T1. The most important advantages for me: 1. Mirrorless. I see the result before I shoot. I can see everything through the amazing Viewfinder. Not necessary to take your eye from the Viewfinder to playback taken photos. 2. Noiseless. Some concerts are very quit (Classic, Musical, Jazz). I hate my Nikon D3S gun in this belongings and love my new quit tool. Sometimes it was not possible to shoot with Nikon because of the shutter-mirror-noise. 3. High ISO performance. Is good, but could be 2-3 stops better. On most concerts the light situation is very very bad. That could be improved. Because of my style of developing my photos with hard contrasts and pushing the shadows (and sometimes blacks), high ISO performance is even more important. 4. Tilting LCD is very handy for shoots from the FOH with audience in front. With my Nikon I was not able to compose a over-me-head shoot. A shame, that the X-Pro2 doesn´t have this handy feature, 5. Understatement. You´ll not be noticed as a professional photographer. I like that. 6. Size. No more words necessary. 7. Weight. My Nikon stuff was much to heavy to carry over long distances. 8. Feel. The X-T1 feels perfect. I love to have those manual dials to have quick access on the most important settings. 9. Viewfinder. The High-Res and magnification and the very small lag time is perfect for my work. 10. AF is quick enough. The accuracy is better than on my Nikon D3S. 11. Less rejects because of above mentioned. I can now concentrate on finding the perfect situation for my shoots. My work; Portfolio: http://www.van-der-voorden.com/portfolio/ Facebook: www.facebook.com/van.der.Voorden.Photography @Fujifilm: I would be very interested in testing (and giving feedback) the upcoming X-T2 for concert photography purposes. Please do not hesitate to contact me :-) Many greetings René van der Voorden
