Overview

Description by Fujifilm:

Built with optical design that offers a large maximum aperture, and a linear motor that delivers high-speed AF performance, while featuring the image stabilization function that allows the use of shutter speeds 4.5 stops slower.

This is a lens you can trust even in toughest of the shooting conditions.
Using high-performance glass lens elements throughout.
Containing two ED lens elements, including one Super ED lens element that boasts performance equivalent to that of fluorite lens, to control chromatic aberration, which typically occurs in long focal lengths.
Sharp and crisp image description across its entire zoom range.

Reviews

Please note that Rico Pfirstinger test a pre-production model of the newly announced telephoto zoom lens.

"If you already know Fuji’s 18-55mm kit zoom lens, the new telephoto zoom will immediately feel familiar. It’s obvious that Fujifilm wants you to buy this zoom as an extension to your already existing standard zoom. Both lenses offer the same key features: a manual focus ring, an aperture ring without engravings, a zoom ring, an optical image stabilizer (OIS) and fast/silent linear autofocus motors. Everything is located in the same place: There’s one switch to turn the OIS on and off, and there’s another one to toggle the lens between automatic and manual aperture settings. Design, build quality and used materials appear to be quite similar, as well."

Fujifilm Press Release:

Launch of the first telephoto zoom for the XF Lens series: FUJINON XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

Fast aperture of F3.5-4.8 across the entire zoom range and outstanding image stabilisation

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is proud to announce the launch of the new “FUJINON XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS” lens for the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 compact system cameras.

FUJINON XF lenses feature advanced lens engineering, capable of drawing the maximum performance out of the highly-descriptive “X-Trans CMOS Sensor” in the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras.  The new FUJINON XF55-200mm lens produces sharp images across its entire zoom range, well resolved corner-to-corner.  The fast F3.5-4.8 lens facilitates image capture in scenes requiring a fast shutter speed.  Its image stabilisation function enables the use of shutter speeds 4.5 stops slower, preventing camera shake even when shooting hand-held in low-light, or at a stopped down aperture.  Furthermore, it is built to include two linear motors for high-speed AF of 0.28 seconds*1, instantaneously focusing on your subject.
