Yes, finally - a pending 24-120 equivalent higher-end...
23

zoom lens!!!  Seeing the new Fuji announcements, the 16-80 F4 OIS stuck out like a sore thumb.  Been waiting for a lens like this for a long time.  Can't wait to get my paws on this one and that 24-120 MM equivalent is the ideal "take everywhere" lens that gets most scenes covered.  Glad to see that it appears as though it's a higher-end lens and bammmmmmm...it has OIS too !!! 

Of course, some Fuji Homies will "b_tch and moan" that it's not an F2.8 lens - geeezzzz, c'mon already.  There are some outstanding upper end zoom lenses out there from various brands that have a constant F4, are superb optically, and they are selling well.

I just hope it's not too expensive.  Having something like this go off the charts price-wise would "probably" dissuade some from getting it.

But just glad that finally (other than their lower end XC series lenses) Fuji is now releasing a zoom lens that gives a 24 MM wide end equivalent in its XF line.

OK, e'nuff for now - I'm done.
