I forgot to mention that, despite the strangeness of the "aperture" implementation, I think it's another example of the fresh approach which seems to be the Fuji trademark, and I (for what it's worth!) approve.

The point is, with a 1/2" sensor (actually 6.5mm), at 5 megapixels, the laws of physics imply that diffraction blurring will start to become noticeable at apertures not much smaller than f3.3. So, the last thing you want to do is stop the lens down further.

In fact, at the longer telephoto focal lengths, the aperture is small enough - as it is - for blurring to take place. And this is actually noticeable - telephoto images are slightly softer than at the wide end. (Of course, this could be the fault of the lens itself, so we can't treat this as "proof".)

A good website for more info on diffraction is cambridgeincolour.com, which covers this and more in various tutorials.
