X100 lens - not that great?
Feb 3, 2011

If you go onto the website, fuji are not exactly bigging-up the performance of the lens at f2. In fact they openly suggest optimal performance at f4-5.6.

I know that's the case with most lenses but I'm surprised at what appears almost to be an open admission of 'not so good-ness'? Especially as the camera appears to be apeing a classic RF and therefore a Leica audience, most of whom enjoy shooting wide open.

I guess we will have to wait and see?
