Might wanna hang in there for the 56/1.4??

That is what I have been doing for a while. I need a short tele beside the 18mm and the 35mm. But I wonder, will the 56mm come with image stabilization? I guess nobody knows yet.

Frankly, I doubt that any of the Fuji X primes will come with IS.  Note that the Fuji X lens roadmap shows the two coming zooms will have OIS but not the coming primes.  The increased size and higher price sacrifices which would be required really don't fit Fuji's thinking, IMO.
