I assume those were hand held which suggests a 4+ stop VR advantage. Nice.24-200 arrived today. First impression is that while it is built well and feels hefty enough, I miss the engraved markings on the barrel and front element ring. I DO realize this is NOT an S-Line. It in no way feels like the 50-250 DX (Thank God). I wish it had a 62mm or 72mm filter size instead of 67mm. Those quibbles are all minor though. I really like that there is no collapse-to-store feature like on the 24-70/4 and 14-30/4. I also was surprised by how close it focuses, that's a big plus for me. I'll shoot more later, just wanted to share. The Fuji was on my desk as I tried everything out. I could fill the EVF with the Fuji and still focus or even move a bit closer. Then I ran outside to grab a shot of SOMETHING not on my desk before the sun went down. Most of the hibiscus had closed up for the night, but at least it is something to share. Hibiscus is with Z7 w/[email protected] ISO400, 1/[email protected]/6.3.

Steve, please do continue to post your pictures and thoughts.24-200 arrived today.
Randy, I don't have a Z6. I can do Z7 or Z50 and I don't think Viera Wetlands are open yet (not sure). I'll look for more to shoot in my travels today and use Z50.put it on the z6 and take it to Viera and then we'll know. I need 1 lens for my z6 and there are very few I'm interested in.
I’d still get a Z50 with the 16-50 though, 24-200 is 36-300, 36mm isn’t wide enough for me to travel with.Looks like I see my wife's new camera/lens combo for traveling...unless she is too thoroughly wedded to her iPhone now. For the last several years she has used a D5500 and 18-200DX but this looks a whole lot better.
I agree that the 24(dx) isn't quite wide enough for travel. I've been toying with the idea of just the 14-30 plus the 24-200 as a two lens dx (or actually even FX) travel kit.I’d still get a Z50 with the 16-50 though, 24-200 is 36-300, 36mm isn’t wide enough for me to travel with.
