I never said that lens manufacturers should work together in harmony to fill gaps, I was only looking at what is available. I found there were no real compelling reasons for getting any of the extra lenses and was a bit disappointed, that's all.

*If* you were only expressing your personal disappointment, you wouldn't have had seen a backlash. But you started a thread called "Did they get it right" and commented:

Sound an awful lot like criticizing Fuji and Zeiss for failing to cater to your personal whims.

I don't own a Fuji 'X' but I applaud their lineup.  Unlike Sony, Olympus, Panasonic they catered to photographers (as opposed to p&s'ers right from the start).  (No defense from Oly fans needed - after 3 years they finally had a decent lineup).
