Re: How serious is the slow focus of X-Pro1 affecting purchase decision?

One thing that bugs me about the lens road map is no long fast primes. The 60mm is it. We need something like an 85/1.8. That suits the camera a lot more than a 70-200/f4 or even the 18-72. I'd love to know if people who have already bought the Xpro are interested in these zooms.

The lens roadmap includes a couple of zooms with IS and at f/4, which with this sensor, should be plenty fast for action. I also expect that AF speed will improve at least slightly for the 18 and 35 with incremental updates. If you need blazing speed right this second, then you would perhaps not want this camera/lens combo at this time. But the 18 really is pretty fast right now, as is. Hope that helps
