Fujifilm patents a 100mmF2 lens. If I deciphered correctly the google translated version, it will be a lens for a 1″ sensor camera (via egami):
“Fujifilm patent application of “corresponding to 1.2 100Mm F2 is an optical system. 1.2” I will be 270mm by 35mm Leica conversion and use a little bit in a small 1 “sensor from.”
