23 & 56 too late?
5 months ago

Have Fuji left it too late in releasing the 23mm 1.4 and the still unreleased 56mm 1.2 ?

I think that they might well have done and that only some super updated non-X sensor in the X-Pro2 is likely to save the X system.

Fuji have been running give-away offers on their X cameras and lenses for the past 4 or so months now even though no other camera manufacture are running such offers so who are Fuji competing against?

These kind of offers are great for someone moving to the X system but if you were someone who bought say an X-Pro1 plus 18 and 35 lenses 4 months ago to see that the cost for this same setup is now half the price you paid I would find quite disheartening.

if you look at the price of the Sony A7 and what you're getting for your money the X-Pro2 is going to need to be a good bit cheaper, Sony or more likely Sigma will produce some small compact primes for the A7/R and given Sigma's resent history they will likely be very high quality.

Given all of the current competition for compact system cameras I think Fuji may have killed the X system camera by leaving it so late in releasing the 23 & 56 lenses and charging so much for them too.

Fuji really need to do something, if Fuji believed in their own system I would have expected them to lower the price on the 23 & 56 lenses rather then halving the price of the X-Pro1.

Personally I think that there is a risk that the 56mm and the X-Pro2 may never see the light of day.

I think that the X100 range will however continue
