Not quite the response I expected. I thought more were waiting anxiously for this lens.

There are not many F1.2 lenses around and from initial reports virtually none that are sharp corner to corner wide open. Fuji is showing its lens making prowess again.

Greg.

What response were you expecting? I see a lot of people confirming that it's either on order or on their list to buy. At that price I don't think you're going to see a mad rush and after all, Fuji discounts these lenses on a regular basis so I think the smart money here is on hanging back for a bit. The lens isn't going anywhere and it isn't the only fantastic lens in the XF lineup...
