Hi gang,

I just had a meeting with Fujifilm Japan this afternoon. There was the X team and they showcased the X-Pro1 as well as the X100 Black premium edition. They finaly gave me the lens roadmap, of course, the Fujinon XF roadmap for 2012 and 2013.

Here it is :

2012 :

  •   14mm wide
  •   18-72mm F4.0 IS

2013 :

  •  28mm F2.8 pancake lens
  • 23mm F2.0 standard lens
  • 70-200mm F4.0 OIS Telephoto lens
  • 12-24mm F4.0 OIS Wide Zoom lens

Note that they really emphasize the fact that this is a PLAN, not what we are 100% sure to see one day on the market to mount on our X-Pro1.

I also had an other piece of information by Franck Bernard, Fujifilm France marketing director : it is not sure the 18-72mm zoom lens will be optically stabilized for price reasons. They can do it, but this would lead to an hardly affordable lens. Instead, we could see a 18-72mm F2.8 coming to the market. Could be a killer as well. He told me they are still discussing it in between all country managers.
