Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

The medium telephoto I had before switching to the 50-140, I bought it for landscape work where I wouldn’t need the wider aperture and had read people suggest its sharpness rivals if not even beats out the red-badged lens.

It really is a lovely lens: certainly plenty sharp and provides a nice focal range for landscape work. It’s also small enough that you can just about get away with hanging it on a Peak Design Capture clip comfortably, although here is where I had a problem: on the Capture it would be hanging straight down and there's no zoom lock, so the telescoping zoom would slowly extend and leave it a bit vulnerable for my liking.
