- I have had similar product from a different manufacturer just a few years ago. Optically this is as good if not better.
The design of the tripod ring is far superior - easy to fix and remove.
Handheld on an XT4 the balance is good and the focus, aperture and other controls fall easily to hand.
- Some people do not like an electronic aperture control. I have not qualms about it except that the setting cannot be viewed on the barrel of the lens. This true of all lenses on the X series Fujifilm cameras.
Extending the lens works well but could be a little less stiff. though obviously some friction is essential.
Cost - but I guess you get what you pay for.
