    I must hold out for the 56 first...must...must....must :)

    There were loaners of it on a Fujifilm event here in Toronto and i denied all loan requests...they must have thought i was a strange one but at least i didn't mutter, "my preciousssss" *lol*

    Picked mine up yesterday. The build quality is the usual high standard expected from the Fuji stable but then I would not expect anything less.

    I have not had much chance to play but here a few from my initial foray. I know I am going to enjoy this lens A LOT!

    p859040823-4.

    p691938774-4.

    p656461208-4.

    I think this lens is going to fit so well that I will probably sell my 35 and maybe 18 as well

    I called every store I know in the Toronto region and none of them have received their shipments.

    Very exciting - but alas I'm not in the ready position to buy...plus I don't have a Fuji X that takes different lenses... Someday, I hope.

    Looking forward to many more fine examples and thanks to you guys who've posted thus far!

    Nice photos!! The cityscape photo is awesome. A beauty!

    On a slight tangent, when pixel peeping, the photos look awfully noisy. Or maybe I just have unrealistic expectations about the X-tran sensor.

    These are 6400 (first two), 3200 and 5000 ISO, noise level is accordingly high.

    Could be PP technique easily. Over-sharpening at high ISOs, too much "clarity" button, etc. gives that look.

    Hi guys :) Thanks for the compliments and the analysis ;)
    They were shot at high ISOs but you are all correct, I do tend to add grain to my shots and for the cityscape, clarity was bumped up quite high.
    I don't mind the noise personally.

    I'll post another one with less clarity/added grain to show the original sensor shot :)

    As promised here's another version of the cityscape:

    r1kl8k.

    This one only had some slight shadows/highlights and contrast adjustments no added grain no clarity.

    Oh please note the different color area (on both shots) to the direct left of the CN tower.
    That is an OOF grill I was shooting through :p
