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?

In 1985 MINOLTA released Maxxum 7000AF together with 11 lenses, 2 flashguns and a complete lineup of accessories. (cf WIKIPEDIA).

It remains a mystery to me, that today such a performance seems impossible to replicate. E.g. Nikon has not a halfway full lineup of APS-C primes in 10 years and SONY needed two and a half years for the 11 E-lenses available.

What remains to lift the hat to the engineering and manufacturing masterpiece of MINOLTA.
