DPReview: What are your priorities for new lenses in the APS-C X-series line?

Shinichiro 'Shin' Udono:

"In terms of focal lengths, we’re missing super telephoto. The maximum focal length now is 400mm. So we’re missing 500mm, 600mm [etc.]. And because we started the system almost ten years ago, the first generation lenses have slow autofocus, and don’t have weather-resistance. We need to refresh those designs."

What Supertelephoto lens designs above 400mm do you most want Fujifilm to produce?
