There are advantages in using longer focal lengths. These were all made at 200mm, but the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm lens has disadvantages with focusing, aperture, etc. in low light. I think I’ll stick mostly to using prime lenses in low light as long as I can get physically close enough. I have been spoiled.
I still have a use for a zoom lens with longer focal lengths inside in lower light. I’m thinking about the Fuji 40-150mm F2.8 for event photography but it is so large and heavy that I’ll probably stick with my use of prime lenses.
I have almost always photographed plants where and as they grow. Maybe next year I’ll cut some and arrange them with controlled lighting and photograph them inside where there is no wind.
