OK the new macro lens will be 80mm - its in Fuji's Road Map as a further feature it will be compatible with the 1.4 and 2x converters. I was able to get a  2x converter at a very good price, works very well with the 100-400 zoom.   My question is does anyone have any idea when we might be able to buy the new 80mm Macro Lens?

My guess is that it would be presented during some major event like photo or consumer electronics show.

I am guessing all optical production is being taken up with all the new Fuji glass including the video specific lens - ugh. The humble macro might be seen as not quite so main stream. As an  interim solution I have ordered  fully auto extension tubesx2 for the incredible price of $12.  Some comments have not been so good, ie poor contacts and build quality not so hot  but at that price whats to worry.  As long as it does not require great effort to mount.  The combinations I plan is 55-140mm zoom 1  1+2 and the 2x converter agh might be completely unusable but fun trying.  Better dust off the tripod.

The new macro now promised is good, I had the 60mm macro with my X-Pro1 Version 1 firmware had I hung-on maybe with firmware updates it might have improved my experience - alas just to hasty. They problem was I was spoilt , I had the Nikon 105Macro many consider this to be Nikon's best lens.   From time to time I will spend a day working with a macro lens, natural sunlight shafting through the window, 10 different orchids from the garden. Then there is portrait it has been a long time coming but to connect/synchronize  a number of flash heads with easy (thank you Mr Godox).  cheap stands and willing bodies make for a interesting experience.  I don't have studio flash heads no justification, but with the new XIT I can resort to hand held flash.
