Weight 405g (XF23 1.4 weight: 300g, Canon 85 1.2 weight: 1025g)

From the MTF charts, it looks like wide open sharpness is about the same as 23 f1.4.

And price is more reasonable ($999), not $1299 as someone predicted.

This looks to be a stellar lens, I'm tempted to pre-order and I've never done that before.

Non-Fuji folks (usual suspects) have gone into attack mode over a lens announcement in a matter of a few hours.  That's always an indication that this will be a big seller IMO.

I used the EF 85 1.8 for 5 years on APS and FF.  I just sold it because it was of no use to me on an X-E2, and it wasn't as sharp as my Fuji 23mm 1.4 wide open until at 2.0 or higher.  And the idea of putting the super expensive, huge, slow Canon 85 1.2 on a small Fuji is simply silly and sound like sour grapes.

Why not come up with some credible rants once someone has actually touched or used this new lens??
