Chris has reported that the reps at CES for FUJIFILM are stating that there will be 12 XF lenses available by the end of 2013.

Today we have for sale the 18, the 35, the 60, and the zoom. That's 4 lenses.

The 14 is essentially done and in the pipeline. That's 5.

Who here believes that FUJIFILM will design and ship the remaining seven lenses this year?

Possible? Or just an example of how clueless FUJIFILM USA reps are? I mean, has ANY camera company launched 7 lenses in a single year? Why does this not seem ridiculous to the FUJIFILM reps?

If they deliver just what was on their previously published roadmap, they would have covered 95% of what's required for most photographers that don't have extreme telephoto needs, so either way, we would have very little to complain about.

That said, I think delivering seven new lenses in a year is a pretty big goal unless they had this stuff in the pipeline and under wraps.  Always good to under promise and over deliver!
