Re: I'm excited. But I'd be more excited if it was faster


I agree. I think Fuji have steered a very fine balance between the 'fast' camp and the 'small and light' camp with an f2 lens. I know the specs aren't out, but I suspect that it'll be small enough to please those who don't want to carry a telephoto zoom, and fast enough to offer decent subject isolation.

This is business.  If it was any faster, I almost certainly wouldn't buy it because of the size and weight, and there would be others with the same view. If it were any slower, they'd lose a different set of customers.

I'm looking forward to seeing it - when it's released......

Cheers, Rod
