Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 Mark II and XF 56mm f/1.2 Mark II in Development

According to the latest rumors from FR,  Fujifilm is working to renew two of its popular primes. As a result Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 Mark II and XF 56mm f/1.2 Mark II lenses are in development.

The Fujifilm X-mount Lens Roadmap doesn’t show these prime models. So take it with a grain of salt.

The current Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 lens (Amazon) was released in 2013, and Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 lens (Amazon) was released in 2014.

We are wondering if the new model will be a full model change with a completely redesigned optical system or a minor change with improved AF and being sealed.
