The 16/1.4 has good AF and WR, though It doesn't need an upgrade.

You are correct. My bad for replying after a couple of whiskies. It is a great lens as it is.

The 14 would still be my priority.


WR might be nice, but the 14mm is optically excellent. AF isn't that crucial at that focal range, and the loose aperture alone probably certainly doesn't warrant an update in the near future. Especially, since the 16/2.8 WR was recently released and - although not an exact focal range match - does provide WR and silent focusing.

I agree with the majority expecting updates being a long way off. On modern cameras, AF is noisier, but overall fast. Fuji needs to focus it's (financial and human) resources on the GFX system and gaps in the lens offering - rather than lens refreshes that can probably wait a few more years.
