What I would really like to see is some zooms with focal ranges you don't see everywhere else, and which really target some specific, common user groups.

1: 23-60mm f/2
Covering the 35mm-90mm equivalent focal lengths, it would be ideal for shooting events where the 35mm - 85mm combination is popular.
f/2 should be doable without getting too big thanks to the modest zoom ratio of just 2.5:1. It covers all the most popular focal lengths for photographing people in motion, so this is the perfect range for Fuji to fulfill the wishes of those who want an f/2 zoom. ~Equivalent to their highly praised GF 45-100mm.

2: 12-35mm f/4
Who actually wants to lug around a 'holy trinity' of three big zooms up a mountain for landscape photography? Combine this with the 55-200mm or similar, and you have the vast majority of the range in just two lenses. One on the camera and one at your side, no backpack excavation required.

I'd love those two options. I've wondered on this forum before how manufacturers choose their FL....they certainly don't get creative in their choices!

I'm guessing if they build a couple lenses that fit the majority of needs for a photographer...they wouldn't sell many of their other lenses tho!? "always keep them wanting"
