Re: XF 90mm f/2 R is on the roadmap


I'm really interested in the 90/2, but obviously the devil is in the detail - how big, how heavy, how close it focuses, and its performance.  It would be great if it's sealed too...... Pity it's a year away but I'm pleased that Fuji has listened.

The specs haven't been announced yet.  There are plenty of legacy full frame 85mm and 100mm f2's with 52mm filters.  The body of the lens will no doubt be a larger diameter than the old FF lenses to accommodate the AF motor.  OTOH, if it covers APSC only, that would act against a larger size.  I'm hoping it will have a 58mm filter to match the 14mm and 18-55, but no doubt others would like consistency with the 23mm and 56mm.

I guess we'll all know more this time next year.

Cheers, Rod
