For whom looking for this great lens with good price, from a reliable seller. In my experience Adorama's E rating was almost like a new with every component and box included.
E- as low as $709, E+ as low as $749, limited stocks.

I bet this one is nice, but I did hear that it's pretty heavy. Fixed aperture is very nice.

Yes, this also lacks OIS so best fit with X-H1. For balance, it should be attached with at least X-T or X-Pro series.

This lens was great before the X-H1, and it's still great now. Lack of OIS and IBIS have never been an obstacle in anyone's photography ever, in the history of the artform. The only negative for this lens is its weight, but otherwise it is a very capable do-it-all walkaround lens that really shines for landscape, portrait, and even street (provided you aren't looking for a lens that disappears on the body).

I've personally shot this thing on bodies of varying size... X-E1, X-E2s, X-T20, X-Pro2, and currently it sees use on an X-T3. Never have I felt like I wasn't getting what I paid for (new retail) or that it would be better for having OIS (and for you cinematographers... you need a gimbal anyway... IBIS ain't gonna cut it at 5 stops on the X-H1).

I am not sure that it should be anyone's first tele lens on the system though (that should probably be the 18-55). If you already have the kit zoom.... the 16-55 is sharper corner to corner in my personal experiences ( not that sharp equals better). I think it really comes down to what you're shooting and where. @16mm it's great for real estate and landscape, and @ 55 its very nearly a solid stand in for the 561.2 (unless you shoot a lot of available light). I have a friend that swears by it for astrophotography, though I can't personally comment on that.

At any rate, if you want this range of focal lengths, and desire weather resistance... it's a no brainer at this price..

I agree. But anyone can make a mistake at any time, and that can be an important moment. Having OIS is kind of an insurance for me that might save the photo when such mistake happened. In particular, many amateurs (say who just take photos with auto mode) are now getting a high-end equipment like this lens, and OIS might be helpful and an essential factor for those people.

Lol... like the old adage... learn from your mistakes right? I'm not saying that there is no merit to OIS or IBIS. I'm just saying that relying on it is a bad idea. I get not everyone has a fine arts degree, or even wants to go somewhere professional with photography...but if your composition and shots are bad without stabilization, they're not going to be better with it.
