Please please please make it 8-16mm f/2.8 WR and most importantly compact. Not like as compact as 35mm f/2.0 WR because that's pretty impossible but just compact enough so we can walkaround with it.

 

Just imagine all the possibilities with a 8-16mm lens :) :)

 

The same is for me.  I tried 3 different 10-24, all were blurred at the left side. Don't want to try a 4th or 5th one.

So please give us this lens.  B)  ;)

Do you guys think it will be smaller or bigger or about the same size as the 10-24?

A 2.8 lens should be huuuge :-)

It would definitely be bigger, just compare any F4 to F2.8 lenses that are the same focal length.

But that being said ... if they released a 2.8 version and did not put IS in the lens ... it may not be too much larger than the current which has IS.

Good! Then I'm still at the dilemma between chosing between just the 16 and 10-24

Get both ... I did!

 

Got the 10-24 first, then 12 months later I got the 16.

 

I use them at totally different times, so having both is ideal

I use the 10-24 when outside in adequate light or when I want (or need) hand held slow shutter as the IS is quite good.  I can shoot @ 1/4 second easily with that lens and get a nice sharp image.

 

I use the 16 when I go indoors and set the aperture to 1.4 and don't touch it.  That is where that lens shines.   :)

Too much $ to justify both for a simple hobby photographer like me :)

I'm actually thinking of selling the 18-55 so I can purchase either 16 or 10-24 with a good conscience :)

If it were me, and just for hobby, I'd get the 10-24 because I find it to be quite a versatile lens.  Excellent for ultra wide angle landscape and architecture stuff ... great IS ... and zoom to 24mm to get that coveted 35mm full frame equivalent for casual street type photography.  I use and enjoy that lens much more than the 16/1.4.  

 

The 16/1.4 only comes out (for me) when I'm doing paid gigs and I require F1.4.

And now I'm also thinking about the rumored 18 f/2 MK II  :o

Wow....I kinda prefer the uncorrected version. The corrected one just makes me dizzy! :D

I have an X-T2...shooting in RAW....sorry I am not understanding since not technically knowledgable - "Adobe Camera RAW has a profile for it on an X-camera"....are you referring to Lightroom or Photoshop or in-Camera?

ACR is in both Lightroom and Photoshop.To the best of my knowledge, they function identically. They function as a RAW to bitmap converter with a rich feature set.

Their premium zoom trinity is about to be complete!

8-16 f/2.8
16-55 f/2.8
50-140 f/2.8

Zoom? What's a zoom?

So why a zoom, and why 2.8? Given the sort of shots they're almost always used for, does anybody really use UWs at their long end? And does anybody really need them to be 2.8? In my DSLR days I used the (lovely) Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6. But shot almost everything around 10mm and f/8. And I think most people I know who use UWs do pretty much the same. So, why not develop a nice, compact 10mm f/4?

You are right Qiki. These are the mysteries of human mind.

 

Despite the way real people use real things in real life, they still want anything which they buy to “ go up to 11” ( quote from  “ a spinal tap”) and they want it regardless, even if they never go “ up to 11” themselves.

I do. 
Both ends, and all in the middle of my 10-24.
Really great range for walking through urban jungles.

The needs of the working pro differ from the needs of the enthusiast.

 

Since my photography is almost 100% professional as I have other hobbies I spend my time at .... I can comment that I use the 10-24/F4 a lot when shooting a wedding ceremony to fly between the ultra wide angle for the entire scene and then back to fully zoomed in for the candid shots as I walk around perimeter of the ceremony.  I also use that lens a lot for the first dances at the reception to get the awesome ultra wide angle of the decorations and guests as they have their first dance, then I zoom in all the way to get a waste-up shot of them with a little of the background.

 

When I shot Nikon I had the same lens but it was F2.8.  I noticed the extra stop loss of F4 when I got the Fuji during the darker dance times.  To try to keep the background similar, I had to now go higher ISO or slower shutter speed (would prefer the slower shutter speed) ... it depends on the scenario.  But for the most part, it made no difference for the ceremony's having to go F4.  But that zoom range is very handy to have when doing closer, more intimate photojournalism style of work.
