First photos of 10-24 and 56/1.2 and thoughts

10-24 -  my thoughts are negative due to 72mm filter size!  When I think about 72mm filter size I think about my former Canon 85L II lens.  That had 72mm filter size and it weighed a kilo.  Is 10-24 too big for a smaller X camera like XE1 or XM1/XA1?

56/12 - my first thoughts are positive.  62mm filter size!  This is going to be something.  I am salivating looking at the lens!   I think (hope) this is going to be that one epic portrait lens, for which photographers would buy a body just to use that lens, not the other way around.

Anyway these are just first thoughts from looking at the above lenses.
