Man, writing a blog means never getting to rest on your laurels. I worked the whole weekend on that 17mm Crowdsourced lens review, and it's already many posts down, and one friend wrote to ask why it hadn't been posted yet! He missed it.
But whatcha gonna do? News keeps coming:
Seven Fuji lenses are on sale at B&H Photo with some pretty hefty discounts. Note that, as of this writing, there's a mistake on the landing page—the black 27mm (40.5mm-e) pancake lens is $150 off, not $250. There's a mistake on the 60mm as well. So it should say "Save up to $200 on Fujifilm lenses," not $250.
Otherwise, you'll see that the savings on these lenses are pretty significant, making this the time to jump in if you've been planning to get one of these seven. This is the cheapest that 27mm has ever been, I believe, for one thing.
And soon, this post will be many posts down—but it won't matter, because by then this sale will be over.
So tell me, did you like the crowdsourced lens review? Should we do it again? And if yes and yes, which lens should we do next time? A lot of people will miss that question, because they won't read down this far. Blogs....

ginsbu: "I was also waiting on the 17mm review: I saw the original post calling for comments, but didn't realize you'd be adding the reviews back to that post; for some reason I was expecting the review in a new post. It might be worthwhile to pull the 17mm review up to the top!"
Mike replies: But I did put it back on the top—on Monday, after calling for the contributions the previous week. The post was pulled for the weekend and then put up in complete form on Monday. Were you reading the actual site, or depending on a feed reader, or not paying attention, or was it just not displayed at the top of the site for long enough and you missed it?
I'd be interested in feedback on this, because I'm not sure how the system works for everyone. All I really see is the actual site, not the feed readers that many people use to read our content.
By the way, the reason I added the reviews to that actual post is to preserve all the comments. Porting all the comments to a new post would be way too much work—there's no easy way to do that.
