The first patents for the much-anticipated update to the Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 R surfaced and a lot of Fujifilm fans should be excited. The XF35mm f/1.4 was the reason to buy into X Mount early and it looks like the updated lens will be a little larger and higher quality than the original. This update should be weather resistant and dustproof with faster internal AF moving 5 elements in 3 groups, but it likely won’t be super fast.
