  • what the heck is “normal lens max. aperture”?

    • Dan

      I think that they’re probably referring to other typical lenses in the class, such as the Nikkor 55-200 f/4-5.6, Canon 55-250 f/4-5.6, or Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6.

      That would be a ‘full frame’ lens aperture equivalent.

    i worry it is too small for my masculine hands. i will never be able to find it in my purse or my pocket.

      I hope you’re jesting…
      The lens is a thumping 118mm L x 75mm W dimensions.
      You’ll definitelly know it’s there, believe you me.

        …is that a lens in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me! 🙂

    I wish it had a bigger aperture but this seems nice.
    I’d also like to see 85mm and 135mm primes.

    “Top Class” Optical image stabilization? What a marketing BS!

    • Panda Mirko

      Feel bad for those who bought already into Fujifilm’s existing ‘standard class’ IS.
      Agree, load of bollix.

  • Nawksi

    Did they make it a third of a stop faster for the sake of making it faster than the standard cheap zoom?

    It’ll make so little difference that nobody should care. Just make an optically good. That’ll be what justifies charging $600-700 for it, not the extra fraction of a stop.

  • Drazen B.

    Anyone noticed the external dimensions ?!
    It’s either a typo or we’re looking at a friggin’ monster at being 118mm wide.

    • Drazen B.

      Meant to say 75mm wide…sorry.

      • Dan

        I think that spec probably refers to the length of the lens at its widest angle of view, so it is probably a retractable design. The two dimensions on that line are noted as (W) and (T), for wide and telephoto. As you point out, the 75mm refers to the lens diameter.

        • Drazen B.

          I was refering to the lens diameter being 75mm, not the lens length at widest setting.

    This looks like a specs sheet for a Fuji salesperson. I doubt anyone intended for this to be seen by us bozos on photorumors.
