As promised, Paul of CameraDiner printed the questions you posted at Fujirumors here and asked some of them to Theo from Fujifilm UK. Take a look at the video to see if Theo answered to your question.
One of your questions was also chosen the “question of the week“. This means that Amnon won the VisibleDust prize asking:
“What happened to the 18-72 lens that initially appeared in the lens road-map and replaced with the 18-55? Were there technical issues, cost issues, weight issues that led to the scale-back?”[Update: Thanks for contacting me via email Amnon… your email wasn’t a fake]
That’s all… look at the video, and see if your question is one of those chosen by Paul from CameraDiner (youtube channel)!
