    Welcome! Lovin' the dog and the bee!

    Interested in your lens lineup. I'm much more a prime than a zoom person but I have the 18-135 as a "travel lens". How much use do you find it gets with the 16-55 and 50-140 in your bag too? I also have the 18-55 and the 50-230 (because it's light) and recently sold the 55-200 in anticipation of the 100-400, which I will use for sports airshows, motor racing and the occasional bit of wildlife. I'd be interested to hear your own logic.

    Well, at first the 18-135 was the only lens I had. I bought it with as a "kit" with the XT1. I used it quite a bit, then came the 16-55 but I still carried the 18-135 for the longer side. But now as I just recently added the 50-140, the 18-135 is in my spare camera bag due to its redundancy. It's great lens to have. I'll probably regret selling it but for now I know it won't be used. I would like to think of it as a "travel" lens but I know myself too well. Even if I kept the lens in my bag I would still bring the 16-55 & 50-140 along and end up using the two much more than the other. I know I'll regret selling the 18-135 when I do but for now, I could use that money to help fund the new 100-400.

    Welcome! I've got family and friends down there that I never visit. The boat pic makes me regret it.

    Garrett, thanks for the comprehensive reply. I thought it might be something like that though I had forgotten that the 18-135 was sold in a kit with the X-T1 - that's a similar reason to why I have the 18-55 (apart from it being the only game in zoom-town to start with) - mine came with an X-E1 attached.

    I took a trip to Italy last year with the 18-55 as my longest lens and lived to regret it. The 18-135 is heavier, 'tis true, but the extra reach and the OIS makes it a great travel lens.

    Roll on the 100-400...
