I have seen nothing to indicate the 56 is anything but vaporware at this point. Based on the time it took them to get the 55-200 and 23 out, I would not expect to have one in my hand until next fall, personally, but Al V., who is much smarter and more reasonable than I am, feels they will out in Asia and Europe late in Q1/14. If that is true, maybe toward the end of this year some will be in the hands of testers?

Sadly, although that was the estimate from the latest roadmap update of 9/13, the latest rumor now has it shipping/available closer to spring/2014. But, I suspect we will know more in January one way or the other.

Fuji will update their roadmap probably in January after CES and if they announce the new weather sealed body then, they will also have to update the roadmap to include the new fast, f/2.8, weather sealed zooms - (these new lenses seem real as my source was a conversation with a product manager at a show in NY last week)
