Why Every Photographer Needs a Telephoto Lens | Fujifilm XF 55-200mm review

Let me explain myself – EVERY photograph needs a telephoto lens in there kit! Why? Watch this vlog…

Today we will explore what happens in comparison to shooting with a wide angle lens then taking the same composition to telephoto. It tells a complete different story within the image and gives the viewer another dimension.

Landscapes with a Tele..?……..HERETIC! No doubt some “purist” landscape shooters are cursing this video. However, I agree with you, teles and landscapes are a great combo. While not a landscape shooter per se, as my background is photojournalism, however, I dabble. I also use the Fuji system after defecting from Canon after 38 years and I have several long Fujinon glass. What landscapes I do shoot, I use a mixture of teles and wides. My favourite is the 50-140, often matched the Fuji1.4x converter. And if I am feeling adventurous, I’ll break out the 100-400.

I bought this fujinon 55-200 a couple weeks ago. I have not used it much yet but I had it out last weekend. I have not looked at them yet. But I like it’s feel

Robbie Cody says:

Another fabulous photograph, just loved it, all that info in RAW really shows up. I normally shoot Jpg for holiday snaps but l will certainly change to RAW for anything serious. Slovenia wow l have to come back, for a few months this time. Hope all is going well on the Asia trip.
Regards Rob

loving the outros Matthew lol.

Great images this week and not long watched Nigel Danson’s vlog this week on the same subject about shooting with the telephoto lens. Think if I looked at my lightroom catalog it would tell a tale about how little I use my telephoto so maybe its time to start challenging myself and leave the 24-70mm off the camera and focus for a bit on the 70-200mm

Bernhard Wimair says:

great shot but y didn’t you wait till sundown/rise? 🙂

Stephen Singleterry says:

Hi Matthew, regarding the last image you showed us, I believe you said you shot at f/8, what was the focal point you used?

Christopher Cauchi says:

What camera did you use for this video?

Omar Acosta says:

Thx for the video… I have been thinking about getting the lens. After your enthusiasm, you have pushed me a little further to getting it.. lol

Thomas Johansson says:

Been looking at getting that 55-200 lens. I keep waffling between the expensive and heavy 50-140, but I honestly don’t think I’ll use the speed the 2.8 aperture gives me. I have other lenses for portraits and stuff like that. By the way, have you played around with vintage lenses? I have a few, but I keep going back to the Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.4. It’s CRAZY sharp and the bokeh is just breathtaking! So fun to use a manual lens too. 🙂

Small pet peeve here too… but it’s called a panorama, not a panoramic. Panoramic is an adjective, panorama is a noun.

John Allibon says:

Well done Mathew you really nailed it. The church & mountain shot is superb.Keep them coming -Rgds, JA

Yuri Ramirez says:

I never wait for sunset or sundown, I’m never at a location long enough. Someday. Excellent video. I’m shopping around for Fuji lenses.

Asim Sohail says:

Excellent video Matthew. Also, could you tell me what tripod you’re using in the video?
Thanks 🙂

Angela Thomas says:

Very good video I have just brought a XT2 and now looking at getting the 55-200 🙂

G. G. Momin says:

Great shots …the camera looks like an XT3….

Alex Mcdougall. says:

Thanks for another great video. Can’t wait for you films from Asia.

Lynne Otter says:

Buongiorno from Italy… rain, rain…. So good to see some sun and mountains that you are enjoying. Great vlog, straight to the point, no pfaffing
