The optics and quantity of lenses is awesome. But I wish Fuji would concentrate on making modern mechanics...ultrasonic focus motors and image stabilization...both which this 90 should have. Optical stabilization doesn't add that much size and cost, just take a look at Canon's inexpensive, lightweight kit zooms.

Ya, but you might as well use a stove lid for a lens. Canon makes crappy kit lenses. I decided on the old Olympus E system (in the dark ages), because I hated the Canikon kit zooms so much.

I'm not big on OIS. Just give me a clean sensor at high ISOs.

Canon's kit lenses were not particularly good but their IS was OK.
Moreover, OIS at longer focal lengths isn't only beneficial to get a sharp image but also a nice help composing. I have an adapted 100mm lens (Canon FD) and I sorely miss the IBIS my Olympus used to offer as the image in the finder can get jittery.
