Of course Eric any of those lenses can equally be good on the XT1 now Fuji has fixed the focus peaking system (to be proven in real world reviews though -n the existing focus peaking is a fail).

In fact many will do better as APSc is less demanding of the lens. However you lose a fair bit of foield of view and you lose a lot of that fast speed so F1.4 legacy on Fuji is really only F2.8 compared to FF. I guess that also means an F2.8 on the XT1 will be equivalent to an F4 on the A7. Something like that anyway. See the other thread about F1.4 on the XT1 was more like F2.2 to F2.8 on a full frame with side by side photos to show it.

Again it boils down to APSc versus full frame and whether you buy into the APSc Fuji is FF quality.

Having both I don't agree with that marketing claim. Fuji APSc is superb but FF is noticeably better.
