yes, great but where is 135 f2, 200 f2.8, 300 f4?

come on already. fujifilm.

You've got to be kidding, right? I mean, who would expect such a statement to be taken seriously?

I think it's pretty series. We all think Fujifilm are making equivalents. We consider the 56/1,2 to be the equivalent of a Canon 85/1,2, the 23/1,4 to be the equivalent of a 35/1,4, the 35/1,4 to be the equivalent of a 50/1,4. Why not ask for lenses that sort-of match faster telephotos? The 90/2 will give a similar image to a 135/2,8 lens on 35mm film, the 23/1,4 gives the equivalent to a 35/2, etc. and so on.

We're hoping for really fast equivalents, get semi-fast, expect small, light, cheap, and are ready to accept all the limitations of the glass that comes out of those hopes. Why not hope for something crazy better? We're already out in la-la land.
