CONFIRMED: Nothing precludes FF Lenses on X Mount
Sep 21, 2012

The earlier "Headline" that FF lenses won't appear on X mounts is absurd on its face.

They ALREADY CAN and ARE being used by other manufacturers on the X-Mount via adapters.

The point Fuji's spokesperson was correcting was that the CURRENT XF lenses (35 f/1.4, 18 f/2 etc) WILL NOT COVER AN FF sensor.

This was obvious to even a neophyte observer of MTF traces at the Fuji product specification pages. APS-C edge performance fall-off at 15mm off axis for the above lenses would obviously be unacceptable at 22mm off axis on a FF sensor.

So let's put this purposely misleadling "Headline" in its proper perspective:

FUJI/ZEISS et al CAN OFFER FF LENSES for the X mount any time they please.

Those new X-Mount FF lenses will work just fine on smaller APS-C sized sensors.
