Three more XF lenses are due this year along (bringing the total to 38), with two more lenses for the GF lens line-up - the GF 30mm f/3.5 and the GF 80mm f/1.7. The GF 30mm f/3.5 is a compact wide-angle prime lens designed to be used for street as well as landscape photography while the GF 80mm f/1.7 is the fastest lens available for the large-format camera system and it's ideal for shooting portraits.
