A beast, and with no OIS. Haven't they learned the lesson from XF 16-55/2.8! Many complaints about the lack of image stabilisation. Maybe it's because the rumour about a camera body with IBIS is true.

Still I think it's a bad decision not to include OIS. Fuji claimed bad influence on IQ when they defended not to add OIS to the 16-55 lens. What about pictures in poor light where ISO must be cranked up to be able to chose a safe shutter speed. Is that not bad for IQ?
