Aimed at entry- and enthusiast-level photographers, the EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM is a small (1.99in/50.5mm long) and light (8.29oz/235g) lens that’s the 35mm-equivalent of a 51mm lens, which provides an angle-of-view that’s similar to the human eye.
It is the fastest lens for the system, an almost equivalent to the 50mm f/1.4 found on the EOS line. If I had an EOS-M, I’d probably get it to supplement the 22mm f/2 (pancake).
But will that system live in parallel from the EOS-R? For how long?
Fujifilm has unveiled their current lens roadmap. While the lineup is already pretty much comprehensive, a few additions are scheduled for this year, notably a 80mm f/2.8 Macro prime lens, and two X-Mount cinema lens.
2018 will see some ultra-wide and telephoto primes.
Fujifilm has announced a strange new lens over in Japan. It’s called the XM-FL, and it’s a 24mm f/8 body cap-style pancake lens that features built-in photo filters that can be accessed by turning a dial on the side.
Very light, totally “dumb” (ie no electronics), for ~$100, can make for interesting experiments on your Fuji X.
For fall 2012, a 14mm f/2.8 wide angle (equivalent to 21mm) and a “standard” 18-55mm (equivalent to 27-84mm) zoom with stabilisation and wide f/2.8-4 aperture.
For 2013, more primes and zoom: the anticipated 23mm f/1.4 (equivalent to 35mm), a 27mm f/2.8 pancake (41mm equivalent) and a 56mm f/1.4 (84mm equivalent), as well as a very wide angle 10-24mm f/4 zoom lens (15-36mm equivalent) and a 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 (83-300mm equivalent).
No detail on pricing or exact availability, but this looks to be a promising commitment from Fujifilm on the X-Pro1 system. Here is the roadmap as published by Fujifilm:
For the mess that is the Nikon F mount. Next time someone tells you Nikon never changed the mount, get them to check this one. At least Canon moved from FD to EF in a non compatible way. This does not lower the other qualities that Nikon gear have.
