I'm not interested enough in that focal length to buy the XF version.

Do you think Fuji will consider another XC prime at some point? If so, is the 23mm f/2 the most likely next XC prime?

XC will be the same as XF version without the weather seal.

IMO the 23mm f2 isn't a great lens, the haziness in min focus distance bothered me a lot and f2 isn't all that bright for a prime. (The size and AF speed are good).

Why don't you consider third party of the same focal length? Viltrox or Tokina has 23mm AF f1.4 STM you may look into.

Because of corner sharpness, fringing wide open and more optical distortion than the 23mm f/2.

Haziness in min focus goes away when closed to f/4 and I have IBIS in the X-S10 to compensate.

The 23mm f/2 at f/4 is awesome for some street photography, and with the weight reduction of the XC treatment it would be awesome.
