Re: Why no lens uniformity?

I totally agree with the premise of this post.

While I still have an EPL2 for hiking, I moved my main system investment to Fujifilm primarily because two years ago the combined Oly/Panasonic m43 lens strategy was so confused. Banding issues made me distrust investing in Panasonic lenses with my preferred Oly bodies, while Olympus couldn't even make its silver lenses the same damn color, let alone provide a consistent user experience or rationalize filter sizes.

Fujifilm is crap with its filter sizes too, but at least all the XF lenses mostly feel the same and work the same. And Fujifilm's lens roadmap makes a big difference in terms of feeling confident about investing in the system.

Why are lens roadmaps hard?
