A tribute to history—in the golden age of photojournalism half a century back, the classic kit was a rangefinder body with a 28, 50 and 90mm lens. The great shooters with Look, Life and the FSA used this combination for their timeless images. With the design of the X-Pro1, it certainly seems appropriate. Interestingly as well, the fourth lens was the 14mm—21mm equivalent view. Those who felt cramped by the 28mm added a 21mm SuperAngulon, which was the widest lens for a very long time. Fuji nailed the digital equivalent of this classic kit—perfectly appropriate for the initial offering.

I have always internally classified prime shooters as either a 35 person or a 50 person.

I can see how the 35ers will most likely not be comfortable with this lineup, whereas the 50ers will be perfectly at home with it. Fortunately, for 35mm shooters, Fuji also has a 23/1.4 in their line-up (which I am also looking forward to).
