Deed....seriously.....what is your deal? Yeah I know who Zack Arias is and he is awesome. I also happen to agree with you from the view that I wish Zeiss would have released a different focal length. That said....it changes nothing....Zeiss released the lenses they did because THEY WERE DESIGNED FOR NEX!!! It's simple math...there are far more NEX users out there than Fuji....so they made a business decision.

So not for me!

No biggy aye?? I only bought a Fuji after PhaseOne had released their 7.1 upgrade, although the software was available for NEX users before! So ... following your logic ... I should have done what exactly? I see what's his face has now got 21 thumbs up, so the majority is happy and that has to be a good thing right??

You know what a "Geisterfahrer" is?? Smiling and shaking my head in disbelief at the same time! Best not to be so outrageously controversial on this forum, right??

Did a little studio shoot today and found that I could see my shadow in the eye of the model because I had to be so close, lacking a longer portrait lens. The 56/1.2 would not rectify this by the way. I took approx 100 or so shots where I wished I could have had a longer lens ...



If a system doesn't suit you, buy a different system. Constantly whining like a helpless child does nothing. The XF system is less than two years old. They won't have lenses covering every need anytime soon.

Also, really wish people would stop blaming Fuji for Zeiss's decisions.
