The Fuji 8-11 f/2.8 - wider and longer, thus not quite apples-to-apples but at least it's an APS-C lens - was announced for $2000. That's $600 more than the Pentax.



Not to be a nitpicker, but the new Fuji Ultrawide f2.8 zoom actually covers 8-16mm, not 8-11mm. It's also on sale for $1500 at present.

I just bought one and found in testing that it is a superb performer across the full aperture and zoom ranges. Well worth its cost, IMO!

Are you even going to use it? You have nearly 140 cameras/lenses listed that you own!!!!!!!!????!

LOL! Yes I do plan to use it because it is unique, but it is part of my larger collection of old and new lenses. I actually have more than 500 at present, but i only use a very few of them. I've been collecting photo gear for almost 20 years now.

The beneficiaries of your inheritance better be photographers then 😁

Unfortunately, no.  They plan to liquidate it when the time comes.  I hope that's a long time in the future!
