Awesome News: Fujifilm adds Telephoto Prime Lens onto its roadmap!

In the first part of my Bird Photography Review of the Fujifilm X-T2, I highlighted the lack of a fast telephoto lens as one of the key improvements that Fujifilm needs to make to its X system if it wants to be taken seriously in the bird photography world. 

It seems like they've taken that feedback (I wish) and have started development on it!

I'm hoping that this will be a 300mm F2.8 for a start. Combined with the XF 2x TC, it will provide a 600mm F5.6 lens with a full frame equivalent of 900mm!
