    XPro-1/X-E1: Longer Lens

    Leaving on an Eastern Europe trip end of March or early April and would like to bring along a longer lens than the 18-55mm. I know the 55-200mm is due out sometime in first half of 2013, but in the meantime, what are recommendations/alternatives. Looking for something in the 135-200mm range (35mm-full frame dslr equivalent).

    I used the Zeiss ZM 85mm f/4 with success. Very sharp lens. I often use it just at infinity and then there is no need even for MF.

    I use my Contax G 90mm lens with an adapter and it works great. Sometimes a little difficulty focusing with the slow frame rate Electronic Finder but most times, not a problem

    Couldn't you use an C/Y Zeiss vario sonnar 80-200 for that. The adapters are cheap and the lens can be bought around 250,--

    I am not a Fuji owner but it works well on the NEX-7.

    You can check out the funwith the Nex-6 thread. All the lenses there also should do well on the XE-1, perhaps sharper.
