    I was in Edinburgh this weekend (more photos coming) and visited a local bar.
    The X-e1 with 35mm (the only lens i had with me on the trip) took some great shots imo

    I hope it AF's better than the 60/2.4!

    The 56 should focus more reliably and faster. The x-e1's focusing seems to be dependent upon the lens' maximum aperture. The zoom focuses better at 18mm (it's max aperture is 2.8) than at 55mm (max ap is 4). Can't wait for the 56 myself.

    I think the 18-55 is motorized, no?

    yea but the 35mm is a 1.4 prime too , but maybe the new lenses will have a better design for AF ?
