Product Overview

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is a telephoto zoom lens for Fujifilm X-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Fujifilm in 2013, it has 14 elements in 10 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is externally-zooming. The entire lens is crafted out of metal, which imparts a level of tactile sense of quality. On the lens barrel, one can find a physical aperture ring. Those who wish to focus manually can have the best of both worlds (with the usual caveats).
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is well suited for landscape and portrait photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for indoor sports. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works.
