    Seems to be sometime this Autumn on the roadmap, so I'd guess the beginning of next year. But it's all just guessing...

    Maybe Rico knows something... Then again, if he told us, he'd probably have to kill us. :D

    Are you looking for a release date or a date when you'll actually be able to get one? ;-)

    I have no special knowledge, but if we can blindly guess, I'll go with October and a list price of $1,199.00

    I haven't heard anything concrete either.

    So far it seems Fuji has been a few months behind on their lens releases, so I'd guess sometime late this year is likely. The 18-135mm still isn't out yet and it's going to be behind that one. I'd say October/November time frame may be about right for it to actually be available, as Luke suggested.
