Fuji Patents 20mm F/1.8 Lens

Fuji has patented a new 20mm f/1.8 lens. Although details aren’t specifically listed I assume, given its focal length and fast aperture that this is destined to be an X-mount lens for use on cameras like the X-Pro 2 of the X-T1. The timing of the publication of the patent would suggest that if an XF20mm f/1.8 is indeed on the way that it could be with us by Photokina in September this year.
