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??

Still smaller than my recent Nikon 10-24 which took 77mm filters. I tried it on my Fuji almost a year ago and it worked great but was an ugly combo, difficult to mange. Ugly due to the need for a adapter/spacer, difficult due to lack of an aperture ring on the lens.

Perhaps this lens will look great on the rumored water proof body and the 10-24 will also be a weather resistant lens as well.
