Re: How much is the XF 16-80mm f/4 going to cost?

I sure hope the 16-80 launches with a price point well below $1000US as some here have predicted, though my own prediction is that it will be $999 street at first. It's definitely a lens I'm interested in... though if it's $1k I might have to figure out how to do without it.

Some people ask what's the point of the extra 25mm reach from 55-80. I thought the same when I first bought the Nikon 16-85 for my DX camera years ago. I quickly discovered that the short telephoto range was pretty useful. It covered most of what I needed to go past mid-range for. With an 80/85 long end on my main lens I only needed to use/carry my longer telephoto lens for special purpose trips like shooting wildlife.
