Incredible stuff, someone should try it with a landing plane at a major airport.

Incredible. What an achievement to build such a machine and navigate it all that way and get results like this!

Not too shabby. I doubt anyone will find much to complain about here. Maybe....

Adam Sharp: Lovely lens . But Fuji prices now pushing people away including myself . I'm sure it will be great .

"I'm sure it will be great" This is another thing that worries me, due to poor quality control at Fuji I had to buy three different samples of two zooms before I got one that worked properly and the difference in IQ between them was astonishing. Wouldn't it be a pisser to get a mediocre copy of a £1200 lens!

Apart from the size of the files they look like pictures from every other modern camera (except mine). Could it be we've reached the point of peak IQ?

Manufacturers must be scared of what they can use to tempt us in future....

I think you should give away a DPReview mug for the comment with the most likes.

Terrible Photographer: This is dumb. If you do this, why not just shoot JPEG? It's not like you can make meaningful adjustments after the fact anyway.. SAD!

And if it's got graduated and radial filters it'll be awesome.

zakaria: Weight and price are the weakest area for this aps/c lens.my dfa pentax 100mm is ff lens and almost half of the price and half the weight.

£500 more than expected - using the rest of their range as examples - is not "creeping up" as far as I'm concerned. My bet is that so few people order it that the price drops dramatically before release date.

You forgot one "If you want it but can't afford it". And yes, I think Fuji prices are creeping ever higher for what it is. If the price of their stuff becomes ever more exclusive it'll be back to Nikon for many I suspect.

Ah Jadot, you are a true believer. So what if it costs loads more than expected, it's got stuff in it! Fuji are clearly on a scalping mission with the latest releases but they've priced themselves out of the market.

In fact, I predict sales of this lens will be so slow that the price drops almost immediately - it's happened before.

That's a shame, I was looking forward to this lens but it's twice the price I was expecting and so I shall have to do without.

30 and 45mm seem a bit close to me. I'll wait until the 20mm comes out, or I win the lottery...

Hugo808: Small, light, easy to use, good IQ, can't see what the whining is all about.

To see if they can pick a winner maybe? Things evolve but I suspect that if they'd thrown some R&D at the M series straight away I would probably have one and be happy with it.
