Fellow Board Members,

I have confirmed the rumor with the Fuji CEO. He said this morning from Japan:

"Greg, we were tired of you begging us for the past three years for a fast wide prime. We knew we had to produce some results for you. We know that you consider the 14 to be not wide enough and old-generation clunky. We will announce your new XF 10 F1.4 soon. Release is delayed a bit because I directed our engineers to remove the OIS at your request, which we had added a year ago in the design phase as per your previous request. You had demanded OIS for years on all our primes and the Brick, but when we finally gave you the XH-1 and IBIS, also at your request, we realized that OIS was redundant since all future Fuji cameras will, of course, have IBIS. Thank you Greg. Sorry, I have to go now. The Sony CEO is calling for our daily strategic planning session. We agreed to allow them to produce the a73, which took some of the shine off the great new XH-1, but just you wait for what we are coming with next here at Fuji. I'll tell you more about it next week on our scheduled call. My Cousins are freaking out over there at CaNikon. Known them since we were kids. They are desperately trying to switch to mirrorless and it is hilarious.."

Looks like the Fuji CEO may have one for the rest of us who want a little more versatility. Rumor has it there will be a XF 8-16mm f/2.8 announced soon
