Well, 1:2 certainly qualifies as macro (and btw, to be fair one could/should even incorporate the crop factor), and the XF Touit is built by Fujinon, too. A third macro lens might be in the cards for 2016 or 2017 maybe?Yeah, sort of... One of them is not a real macro though... The other is not made by Fuji.
I guess nobody knows - or if they know, they are not allowed to talk about it - how the 18-55 performs with the new Fuji Sensor. Also nobody knows how the 16-55 performs with or without OIS. I guess if you like OIS the 18-55 is plenty fast enough, isn't it?While the 16-55 is a constant 2.8, it's the same a aperture at the wide end and only 1 stop faster than the 18-55 at the tele end. If the 18-55 is supposed to offer 4 stops worth of OIS, that's a 4-stop advantage on the wide end and a 3-stop advantage on the tele end. Not to mention that the 16-55 is rather hefty. To me, OIS should be a no-brainier.
A MAJOR FAIL on Fuji's part IMO.
Could be your X-Mas present.I wish Fuji would release a set of extension rings which maintain the electronic connection to allow for focus, aperture control and greater magnification. There have been reports of damage from third-party solutions. If Fuji did it, it would be reliable.
