| p.1 #11 · p.1 #11 · Fuji X-M1 leak - no VF + new 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 and 27mm f/2.8 lenses |
Could very well be Fuji is differentiating their budget line from their "elite" line by removing the aperture rings from the lower models and lowering their price.
I mean, 27mm/2.8 is okay but isn't horribly exciting, and would you really find yourself stopping this lens down that often anyway?
Street shooters will probably set the aperture, prefocus and be done with it, anyone indoors will have it wide open, etc. And as already mentioned, if this is targeted as a minimum-profile set-it-and-forget-it (mostly) pancake, then removing that aperture ring saves a lot of space and probably price.
Now if the 23 and 56 come without aperture rings, we have a problem Houston. I don't see Fuji doing that though.
