If anyone has any complaints about zooms, especially the 55-200 please take a close look at this image. The bokeh, IMHO is perfect, the color, and oh my the sharpness. This lens is 1/3rd the price of the 50-140 2.8. If I had to chose again, I’d still go with the 55-200. It’s lighter, has a bit more USABLE range, it’s tack freakin’ sharp, and the bokeh is delicious. Other than the weather sealing there is no equal. With that being said I have used the 55-200 in rain and snow with zero ill-effects. As I mentioned in a prior post somewhere pre-digital days we went out shooting with the equipment we had. I for one was never, ever worried about my older Minolta cameras. I lived in Alaska for five years and never, ever did ANY of my lenses or cameras failed me. I still have a Minolta X-E7 that I purchased on February 15th, 1978 ( remember the date because it was my birthday). And it still works! I won’t even begin to tell you the abuse that camera has taken! Including a slight dunking which destroyed the zoom lens– a Soligor 70-300 (who remembers Soligor?); a can of Coke spilling on it — oh what a gooey mess that was! Add to that the rain, sleet, snow, ice and extreme cold from working in Alaska. So to me that whole weather-sealing is just nonsense. Sorry Fuji.
