If it ever comes it'll certainly be amazing, but also one big-ass lens with a filter size of at least 82mm.

Nice lens but wrong system. I would prefer to see some small primes. Where is the sense in putting a large lens on a small camera that can't capture action. If I want that I would use a DSLR.

Well, the point is for wildlife (among other things). Also, the X-T1 can capture action, it's just not as fully-featured as a pro DLSR. Anyway, Fujifilm already has a "super telephoto zoom lens" on their XF lens roadmap. Whether or not it's this design remains to be seen.

There is a long way to go before the X system (or any mirrorless for that matter) is up to catching action. My X-T1 can now sort of focus on a moving subject, however, the lag (when shooting) makes it impossible to follow anything that isn't moving in a totally predictable way. With something moving erratically, forget it.
