  • 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.

Although if you are adding the 1.4x its not to shoot wide open is it?

I am intending to shoot it wide open like my 50-140 with a 1.4x tele.

I agree its a welcome lens, although i think it should be cheaper, considering its an APS-C lens, so technically smaller then a FF one (less materials, focus motos moving smaller glass, etc...)

at $799 I am not complaining , the 100-400 is considerably more expensive and a too big for me.

  • 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.

Honestly, its always good to have more options. But there isn't a small Fuji camera WR to pair with it and go out with a small combo.

Your point is valid though I was thinking about my x-t3 when I said that, it's all relative.

  • 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!
