Thanks for the info. Yes, the 10-24 is much bigger than I expected. And the 56/1.2 is 1.5x as big as the 60, I would rather have a 1.4 or 1.5 that's cheaper and smaller.

My ideal setup was: 56 + 35 + 10-24, but I might have to reconsider this strategy.

Remember the Fuji 60MM is a Macro lens, not just a 2.4 aperture. The reason to have it is for macro 1:1 needs.

The Fuji 60mm does not do true macro 1:1; max magnification is 1:2.

Not only is it merely 1:2, additionally,  its minimum focusing distance is nothing to write home about as far as macros go.  Also it is so sllllloooow and noisy to focus, after a while of owning 60mm, I got rid of it, as I did not see much benefift of it over shooting 18-55 at 55 end at F/4.

My ideal setup would be 14/2.8, 35/1.4 and 56/1.2.
