Re: Does Fujifilm pace their lens releases to to make us buy them all?

The first lens were small and light, 18, 35, 60, 18-55 and 14mm. Then came to big guns/primes. I suspect that if they started with big lenses the system would not have sold as well since part of the allure was small and light. Next comes the big zooms with 72 and 77mm filter sizes like the 10-24, 16-55, 50-135 w/tripod collar

Personally, i am sticking with the small and light lenses. Choice is good.

they also started out with a hybrid rangefinder style and now have a model T SLR style with big hump.
