If you only had 3-4 fuji lenses what would they be?

My choices, in order of actual use:

1. XF 23 f/2

2. XF 33 f/2

3. XF 16 f/2.8

4. XF 55-200

Plus, for just having fun, via manual adapters:

5. Olympus Zuiko 35 /f2.8

6. Olympus Zuiko 50 f/1.8

7. Olympus Zuiko 135 f/3.5

8. Olympus Zuiko 75-150 f/4

9. Nikon Nikkor 50 f/1.8

I just shoot people, things and places I go, no single style prevails. All on a pair of X-T30-II bodies. I like the compact lenses over the larger, wider apertures.

My four lenses would be:

16mm f/1.4 R WR, 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR, 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR, 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR

I am a huge fan of 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm full-frame equivalent primes. I learned to photograph at these focal lengths. I'm such a stickler, I refuse to get the 18mm f/1.4 over the 16mm because of the ~27mm equivalent. Someone else may prefer that focal length, but I'd rather go wider. I don't care if the 18mm f/1.4 has superior autofocus, the 16mm f/1.4 is a marvelous lens. 23mm would probably be on my camera body most of the time because for the "normal" focal length I greatly prefer the 35mm full-frame equivalent, but I'd switch to 33mm (50mm full-frame) for portraits or some street / landscape photography. I flip between the 23mm and 33mm all the time. 50-140mm is such an amazing zoom, it could cover the telephoto end of the spectrum easy, especially for landscape photography, but also useful for portraits.

With this kit there's coverage from 16-140mm with some brilliant low-light capabilities and all weather sealed! If I was shooting mainly portraits I would swap the 23mm out for the 90mm f/2 in a heartbeat. Not the hugest fan of the 56mm f/1.2 but hopefully the newer version will grow on me.

I'm a general photographer meaning I generally shoot whatever I see that's interesting except weddings. Don't do those anymore. I own 14 Fuji and non fuji lenses and the one's I use most are the 10-24 (OIS), 16-55 F2.8, 70-300 (+1.4TC), and the 150-600. Those cover everything I do, the other lenses I've paired up with the various fuji cameras I've owned that the lenses they're paired with were developed together.
