I am VERY disappointed in the X Series lens development. If we are looking at big delays on the 14mm, and April (who knows if that is going to be on time) for the 55-200, then we'll be looking over the horizon near 2014 for the 23mm, and beyond that for the wide zoom and 56mm at this rate.

I am happy I'll have fun stuff to play with in the meantime, but what I really need are lenses. You would think that a priority for a company with an interchangeable lens system they are trying to gain support for.


Well, patience is a virtue. Want the 35mm? Want the 56? the 23 - want it all and now? If you had it, after 4-5 months you'd be looking out for the next big thing, guaranteed.

No lens will stuff the hole inside the impatient mind.

Except relaxing.

Not true. If those are the focal lengths you like to shoot at and have done so for a while, I don't really see the logic of your statement, nor how you can guarantee such a thing.

Personally, I have always shot ultra wide (14-18mm), 35mm, and 85mm. The only thing to change in years has been that I now shoot 50mm more than I once did.
