Fuji Tuesday - Fuji owners meetup in Toronto. And they had a Fuji rep with all the goodies. Great people, lots of fun (a bit cold, but we stayed indoors)

I'm also going to Fuji on Friday for some sort of press day show and tell. Hopefully I'll get to play with the X-T1 and 56 a bit more. But Fuji has my money anyway

Can you do me (and others here) a little favor?

I love macro photography and really hope to see a native tele macro lens for Fuji X in the future. Something like a 90 - 100mm f2.8 1:1 with IS and weather sealed.

M43 has 2 solid choices for such lenses. Fuji has none yet; I would argue the 60 f2.8 doesn't count since it's a bit short and not true macro.

Can you please ask the Fuji rep about such a lens? At least let them know there is interest in it?

X-T1 would be very nice for field macro work with the tilt screen, amazing VF etc.

No problem:)

RGB histograms and 135mm equivalent (or so) fast prime is also on my list.
Anything else?
