Yikes, 20 oz in weight! But still, they are holding to their higher end aspirations for the XF stuff so I suspect their target market will be happy with the faster aperture and IQ compared to the 7 oz slow zooms in m43 land.

System is filling out nicely, I await the 10-24 at the end of the year. I could see a 10-24,18-55,55-200 plus the next XF body as tempting. Assuming they up the AF and ditch the X-Trans (just my personal preference).

Really liking what they have been doing with their lens line-up.

This will be my 3rd Fujinon XF lens.
I have the 35/1.4 and the 18-55.
I will also get the 10-22 and the 56/1.2
Looks like firmware updates for lenses and bodies in July, great!
I'm liking this system more and more.

I would prefer a fast tele prime like a 100mm instead for that size and weight

I'll pick this one up, even though I think it's larger than what I'd like it to be.

I'll probably get this, and it'll pretty much solidify my XF lineup for some time. That'll give me the 14, 35, 60 and 55-200. Good range and lots of capability in 4 lenses. I could see myself maybe selling the 60 for the 56/1.2, depending on price and how good it is, but we'll see. The 55-200 is a little bigger than I'd like, but it's still not that big, and it probably wouldn't be a daily carry for me, just a nice option for a full kit.

There is a video of this lens on an XE-1 posted on fujirumors.com. Lens looks pretty large on the XE-1 and when zoomed out very long. Not sure if I'll get this one. After renting the 14 2.8 I'll be adding that one to my 35 1.4 and will wait to see the Zeiss offerings in June. Things are looking good for Fuji.

If you've got the 14 and 35, won't the Zeiss offerings be pretty redundant for you?

I'll probably pick this one up as well. The 56mm f1.2 seems interesting but I'm getting the feeling that lens might be priced at least $799.

thats how I feel with this system, that zeiss would be a nice addition to get that signature look, but I can easily do with just the OEM wides.
unlike my canon system where the canon wides always seemed to find a way to let me down.

I might give the 55-200 a go as well.

If only they'd put OIS in their primes as well...

Happy shooting,
Yakim.
