10-24 - my thoughts are negative due to 72mm filter size! When I think about 72mm filter size I think about my former Canon 85L II lens. That had 72mm filter size and it weighed a kilo. Is 10-24 too big for a smaller X camera like XE1 or XM1/XA1?

56/12 - my first thoughts are positive. 62mm filter size! This is going to be something. I am salivating looking at the lens! I think (hope) this is going to be that one epic portrait lens, for which photographers would buy a body just to use that lens, not the other way around.

Anyway these are just first thoughts from looking at the above lenses.

Why dont we ask Fuji to do the magic and re-built the 10-24 with 62mm filter size. Additionally we could redesign almost everything on the cam as well in order to address our specific requirements. Not even ZEISS, LEITZ, or NIKON is able to make all lenses with the same filters size!!! Why do we expect this from FUJI??
