I liked the lens, but at the end i sold it and use mi 55-200VR from Nikon with an adapter to Nikon G.

This lens is too expensive for 6,7 at the long end.

If you are using manual settings and change the aperture with the command dial, how do you get the (3x) zoom in the display to help with manual focus? (On the xf lens this is done by clicking the command dial but i’m guessing that isn’t the case with the xc!)

This lens requires an immediate upgrade to a Fuji X-E1 user to allow for it to function properly. For the first time user of this class of camera/lens it can be a daunting experience finding that firmware update and getting it installed properly. Then it’s back through the menu system to get everything set up to function properly such as the OIS.

I am a Fuji X-E1 user owning the Fujinon 55-200mm version of this zoom. My photography student just bought her X-E1 with the 50-230mm zoom and must go through all these changes before she can even take decent pictures. If I wasn’t there to help she would be completely despondent over everything she needs to do to get the camera to function. I think Fuji needs to sell with bodies complete with the latest firmware install. At the very least the store selling this gear should take it upon themselves to set it up considering their staff sold her that lens. There lies the problem, buying a camera online or from a department store such as Best Buy where the sales personnel know little to nothing about cameras or computers. IMHO
