If all of Fujifilm’s roadmap of prime lenses were available for X Pro1, which lens(es) would you get and in what order?

FLact…..FLeq…....fmax.....….Mag
60..........91..........2.4..........50%
56..........84..........1.4
35..........53..........1.4..........17%
27..........41..........2.8
23..........35..........1.4
18..........27..........2.0..........14%
14..........21..........2.8

35mm, 23mm, 14mm, 18mm, 56mm.

I have the 18, 35 and 60 now, but the above is going to be my complete kit once all of the lenses are available. I might let go of the 18mm as well, but as of right now I love it for it's size, weight and f/2.0. Great wide angle for street shots at night.

Is that the full immediate roadmap? Seems very limited at long end!

I have the 35 mm and the 60 mm.

Likely will get the 14mm and the 56 mm when available.

Remember we will be getting X Mount lenses from other sources. I won't get the 8mm fisheye that was just announced but there will be others.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I have the 18/35/60 right now, but plan to sell both 18 and 60, and get the 14/2.8, 23/1.4 and 56/1.4 to have the 14/23/35 and 56. A perfect kit IMHO.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I have all three now. Will add 14 and 23, probably not the 56: kind of redundant IMO, unless I can sell the 60.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

if all the lens are priced in the same range $600 + - , i would get them in this order

23 f/1.4 (35mm) for general walkaround, one-lens travel
56mm f1/4 (85mm) for portrait with shallow DOF
14mm f/2.8 (21mm) for wider angle than the first one

that should be enough for me

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

Thanks for your replies.

I was leaning toward an 18-23-35 set, but maybe a 14-23-56 would be more versatile, of course, none of the latter exists at the moment...

Here's a horizontal FOV map of these lenses:

That's actually an extremely helpful/intuitive graphic, thanks!

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

Depends on the quality of the new lenses.

Already have 18, 35 and 60. Will also get 18-55 zoom as well, so 14 makes sense. May sell 18 at that point. Waiting now for something longer as well, a 90mm F1.8 would be lovely, but will probably settle for the long zoom when it arrives.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I've been debating this. Most of my choice debates around the 18. I will get the 18-55 for when I can't 'zoom with my feet'. 14 seems very wide to me but will probably get it. So my decision revolves around whether I need the 1.5 stops the 18 gives me worth another lens. 56 is a definite.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I reckon the 23mm, the 60mm macro and the 55-200mm zoom would do for me. If I had it right now, I would only need to take one camera on holiday instead of a DSLR and the X100 that I will be taking.

Have 18 and 35. Next is 14. hoping the corners are better than the 18. All the rest (macro, teles) will stay Nikon AI.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I notice some prefer a 14mm to an 18mm. Do you think a 14mm (21mm eq.) lens provides the weirdness of ultra-wide angle lenses, e.g. , exaggeration of perspective, distortion of dimensions and curvature of straight lines? In other words, is a 21mm eq. lens more of an artistic lens than a standard?

Since narrow DOF photography isn't really the strong point of wide angle lenses, I would take the IS over the extra stops and get extra versatility into the bargain. Would make for a great travel camera. The 18 us probably the easiest to give up being a little weak corner wise.

Re: If all Fuji’s roadmap of prime lens were available...

I have the 18, 35, and 60. I will buy the 56 and the 23. No interest in the zooms or anything longer than 60. I might consider the 14 at some point but I'm more likely to use my Nikon + 24mm F1.4 if I want to go that wide. I will be completely set with the 18, 23, 35, 56, and 60. I never use anything longer than the Nikon 135mm anyway and I don't use that very often. The X Pro is my main camera, the Nikon I use 2 or 3 times a month.

The 23 is the lens I'm most interested in. That said I wouldn't sell my X100.
