I have bought the 35mm F/1.4 and I will probably buy the 14mm and 54mm when it comes out.... I still don't have a body and I wont buy one until the AF has been improved. I figure the lenses are going to go up in value, so I will buy them now. The bodies will get better, so I can wait and use what I already have.

You bought a 35mm lens and not a camera believing that the camera will improve and the lens will rise in value? That is optimism!!! I hope for your sake it is not the other way around, fuji improves the lens focusing ability and later improves focus on a new body.

I think that the lenses will get more expensive as the system gets established.  If I look at the lenses I bought 5 years ago, they are all more expensive today.  Bodies don't go up in value in the digital world.

The Fuji lenses are upgrade-able with firmware, and the 35mm is a very good lens.  I have no issue with buying it an waiting.  I would not buy the 18mm or the 60mm, but the 14mm looks very good and I expect the 54mm will be an excellent lens.

There is also the possibility that Fuji is no done when it comes to bodies.  They may release a larger body X-mount like a Panasonic GH3 that has the new PDAF sensor and improved EVF.

I have plenty of camera options, so there is no hurry.
