    Future Roadmap for XPro1 lenses

    The most common question that I am asked about the XPro1 is what and when new lenses will be released, so this might help a few folk:

    Autumn (Fall) 2012:

    14mm f/2.8
    18-72mm f/4.0 with Image Stabilisation

    2013:

    28mm f/2.8 pancake
    23mm f/2.0
    72-200mm f/4.0 Image Stabilisation
    12-24mm f/4.0 Image Stabilisation
    Cheers, Dave

    Thanks Dave
    It's a really intelligent lineup I reckon. Although it does rather indicate that they're expecting you to use the EVF rather than the OVF for most of these.
    I think that the zoom is going to make it harder for me to resist!

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks Dave,
    I'm a bit surprised by the image stabilization on the 12-24, it doesn't hurt but is it really necessary?

    Yes, I thought along the same lines. It is not as if it is likely to be a heavy lens at F4.0! Perhaps they have just decided to make it a "standard" for their zoom line up.

    I suspect a bit of 'standardisation' going on here!

    2 lenses over 6 or better over 9 including the 18/35/60

    need the EVF or LCD
