What do we think?

It's pointless to whine about whether or not Fuji should have been making this or a new WA or portrait lens. I won't be buying it, but it's not for any current X user, it's for a wider market of different people that Fuji doesn't currently sell to.

The truth is they should do this. Why? Because they'll never have market share otherwise. Market share drives people onto the system (there has to be a reason why people keep buying NEX cameras) and means third party manufacturers are more likely to independently innovate (think getthing the Sigma mirrorless lenses in X mount or getting improved RAW support).

Without market share, the system will be unprofitable and will eventually die.

Exactly. Everyone that whines about RAW support, third party lenses, or otherwise, should be huge fans of this. More sales equals more support in general. Imagine if Adobe fixes their RAW support, that alone would be huge. But Sigma releasing XF lenses would also be great.
