On order.

Currently loving the X-E1 and kit 18-55mm lens.

Had the 18mm and 35mm when I owned the XPro1 (loved the tack sharpness of the 35mm - but did not love the focal length.)  Actually preferred the 18mm for everyday shooting.

But for me, the 23mm is the ideal focal length, and with f/1.4 it's a dream lens to go with the kit zoom.

What?  But the kit zoom covers that focal length, why duplicate?

Well, when you shoot with a creamy fast prime a few things happen:

* You move to compose and (at least I) tend to take more time composing.

* Sweet goodness, f/1.4 - shoot close and get a beautiful background defocus.

* I fell in love with the 23mm f/2 lens on the X100 as well - and /patiently/ waited for Fuji to release this lens.

And keep the zoom nearby; there are situations where a zoom makes complete sense.
