Shawn - yeah I thought a lot about the 80 XL initially but it doesn't allow for enough movement (for me). I love the 72 XL though (except filters, ouch). 80 would be a perfect focal length for much of my work (pretty much exactly a 24mm lens in 35mm format). If Schneider had made a "true" wide angle design 80 XL, I probably wouldn't need the 72 or the 90. I'd go for the 80, 110 (or a 120), 150, 300 kit and be done with it.
I have a 300 Fuji C I'm excited to start using (waiting for the Walker SF to get here).
FlyingCamera - I wish I could use slower wide angle lenses, but I just find f8 too difficult in low light. I had a chance to try a 120 f8 Nikkor recently. That would have been a great lens to have, but it was just too dim off axis - and 120 isn't even that wide. Not that f5.6 is so much better, but it does help significantly in my case.
