Yes. Seriously disappointed.

Almost no f1.8 glass (couple). No f1.4 glass. Two fast primes. Where is the ultrawide prime or wide zoom?

Comparatively, Fuji has done an EXCELLENT job in the same time (3.5 years) with a very good lens selection.

Sony has supposedly sold several times over the amount of E-mount units (compared to Fujis X series) and still can't produce enough good lenses for it?
Somehow it all sounds like very forced marketing and very artificial segmentation and as a result, a silly lens roadmap.

This is why I'm seriously considering switching over from NEX to X-T1. The lens selection is just so much better.

Switch. But before you do, check the history of Fuji walking away from product categories and lens mounts.

Fuji is hemorrhaging money on its X line. It's an investment in managerial ego that could end overnight with a new CEO determined to make the company more profitable.
