  • 70-300 f4-5.6: Considerably smaller than the 100-400 and takes teleconverters, what's not to like. With a 1.4x teleconverter I am only at 5.6 at the wide end.
  • 27 f2.8 MKII: The aperture ring brings some welcome operational consistency to the XF line-up, with this I can carry around a fully weather resistant camera system without suffering stressing when there are light rain showers.
  • 18 f1.4: Smaller than the 16f1.4, the additional stop of light over the 18f2 is appreciated.

I am looking forward to all three!

have pictures or specifications been released of 18 1.4? how do you know it's smaller than 16?

Here is a link to an old thread with images of the 18f1.4 and the 16f1.4.

awesome bud, cheers!

Having looked at it, it does look pretty dinky - good news! I'm looking for a wide-angle for shooting at night time and this could be the one- although I don't exactly think the 16 looks massive. I mean, it's less than 400 grams. I don't think 18 has focus clutch as well, which I like as a feature, and the close-focusing of 16 (not to mention image quality) means that it'll have to be pretty good  - but definitely the lens I'm most interested in out of these three.
