Hi,

Thx for posting. Interesting. Some people will enjoy such a long range zoom.

I wonder whether the advent of this lens signifies that Fujifilm are now licensing their protocols for AF, aperture control and exif to the independents and if so, whether that's a symptom of their recently publicized shift toward medical products and services. Ie if they want less pressure to develop new X and G products themselves, maybe they achieve expansion of the lens range via the independents. Just a thought......

They already said they licensed to Tokina awhile ago.
