Fuji makes really nice lenses for the X series but the idea that Fuji is a step ahead just shows you how far behind or maybe just unaware many people seem to be.

For NEX, you have the 20 f2.8, 24 f1.8, 35 f1.8, 50 f1.8, 10-18 f4 and all are really good lenses (may be too soon to judge the 20 f2.8).   Fuji has the 14 f2.8, 18 f2, 35 f1.4, 60 f2.4, and 18-55 f2.8-4 which are all very good (18 f2 and 60 f2.4 seem to get mixed reviews).

I would trade all four or five 18-200 f/6.3 lenses for either the 18 f2 or 35 f1.4 or 60 f2.4 or 18-55 f2.8-4.  i would also trade the 55-210 f/6.3 for a 55-200mm F3.5-4.8.  in a year or two we will be there.  those zeiss lenses are really gonna help too - if they are under $1100.

Well, that is brilliant...   The real question is will you trade the 24 f1.8, 35 f1.8, or 50 f1.8 for the Fuji 18 f2, 35 f1.4, 60 f2.4?   I wouldn't think twice about taking the 24 f1.8 and 50 f1.8 but I might struggle choosing between the 35mm lenses.   The Fuji is f1.4 but the Sony has OSS and both are really good.

If you enjoyed the Fuji lenses so much why didn't you stay with Fuji?
