I hadn’t used my 55-200mm lens on the X-T2 for a long time, so I took it out to refresh my views on using it. I like the lens and I have no trouble using it, but I still see little use for it unless I am trying to get a better, up close, view of wildlife. Deciding when to take it out is just an added complexity since I usually go out with only one camera and one lens if I’m walking. My primary use for the lens is at Homewood events when I need to make pictures from behind the audience.
If I had my druthers, I would rather just use a single prime lens and make mini-landscape images for my personal photography; but I’ll try to remember to use the zoom lens occasionally to get colorful images of wildlife (what little we have) for residents to view.
