So torn right now...

12mm F2 vs 8mm F2.8 Fisheye.

I have the 12mm F2.

I'm wanting... wider. I have that sickness.

Sigh, what do? :cry:

Very best,

The 8-16 and 9mm are great suggestions if you want rectilinear.

The samyang/Rokinon/etc fisheye is substantially wider than any rectilinear lens and the projection is pretty good. It still is somewhat curved, to be sure, but it isn't as fishy as many of the fisheye lenses out there.

A few examples:

There are a number of others on the same account.

Samyang 8mm Fisheye has a 180º angle and is not that fishy. Fuji's 8-16mm is rectilinear but 'only' 122º I doubt you'll get a better option if you want really wide & you can easily correct the little bit of fish in Photoshop or even Lightroom if you use that has a profile to straighten it out. I use mine a little bit but it's gone once the Fuji zoom arrives.

I am not looking forward to seeing images from the 8-16. My Fuji GAS is under control. For now.

If they add focus stacking in an Xpro firmware upgrade, the 80mm becomes a serious risk.

And if the images from the 8-16 are as good as I expect they will be...

Half of me thinks I should stop adding gear at all and eventually get a GFX.

Aren't we about do for an Xpro 3?

Either way if you have a use for a macro get the 80. It is amazing.

didnt the Xpro2 get focus stacking like the XT2 did with the most recent firmware update?

Don't hold your breath...

MY 8mm 12mm and 10-24 are on the block soon awaiting the 8-16 - despite the sticker shock of the price I know I'll use it for a few shots at weddings and plenty otherwise. The optical correction is amazing on it right out to the corners.

If you shoot portraits or landscape or editorial then the GFX is a win win, still trying to justify it for myself but I can't quite to seem to get there, maybe the GFX***R will land on my lap next year and keep the rangefinder theme going.

Im thinking that way also! ...Not only am I thinking about not buying anymore Canon full frame or Fuji cropped gear but Im also seriously thinking of having a partial collection sale in order to get the next gen GFX with some decent lens as it will surely cost and arm and a leg to get more than one lens for this system ...

The moment they announce the new GFX within a couple of weeks regrettably one of 2 camera storage bookcases will be empty (:.....Although my wife will be certainly happy given the gear on 2 bookshelves is stored in her office :). ( and happy assuming she doesnt find out its been replaced with something at higher cost )
