Fuji Lens Line-up (pro and non-pro)
10 months ago

Just for some discussion.

We all know that the newer primes produced by Fuji (like 14mm, 23mm, 56mm) are faster, bigger and heavier while the older set (18mm, 27mm, 35mm and 60mm) are lighter, smaller and slower (except the 35mm).

There are some of us who go mirrorless mainly for the weight and size and don't really need to super solid build and super larger aperture. On the other hand, some of us only care abut speed and build and don't mind carry some extra weight.

Therefore would it be a good idea if Fuji (like Canon and nikon) produces 2 lines up of lenses, i.e. pro and non pro with same focal length?

I am sure a lot of us will buy a 23mm f/2 if it is smaller and cheaper than 23mm f/1.4.

I am sure a lot of us will rather have the 60mm f/2.4 (due to price, size and weight) rather than the 56mm f/1.2 if the 60mm has faster autofocus?

Hypothetically lens line up:

Non-Pro: (RRP +/- $500)

14mm f/2.8, 16mm f/2.8, 18mm f/2, 23mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, 60mm f/2.4 (+ telephoto)

Pro: (RRP +/- $1000)

14mm f/2, 16mm f/2, 18mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.2, 56mm f/1.2 (+ telephoto)

What is your view?
