Excerpt: It really comes down to how you're using you're mirrorless kit. But with the recent rebate making this lens 499 at the time, I couldn't pass it up. It keeps my mirrorless kit small, which is why I went with it as my second kit to begin with and gives me some really nice reach for long reach...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Fuji overdid it a bit with the stiffness of the zoom, IMO. I've tried other copies and they feel similar. So don't expect easy zooming for fast moving objects. Fortunately, the IQ makes up for this. And how. AF can however hunt at times. But all and all, for the price, this is a recommended lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Short and simple.... I am very pleased with the sharpness of this lens. Nice rubber focusing grip so feels stable in my hands.Wish it had the rotatable tripod ring but that would add weight that some people wouldn't like I suppose. Still, for the price I am VERY PLEASED.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: This is a very reasonable lens to get to pair with the XF18-55mm kit. Add an ultra wide prime or zoom, and you can have all situations covered. It may not have the widest aperture, but OIS is handy for non-moving subjects. Very respectable sharpness, and quality build.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have been using high end 70-200mm lenses for several years. They provide the "reach" I need on many occasions. In moving to the Fuji X system from DSLR I thought my mid-range zoom options would be worse than DSLR lenses. I was really surprised when I started using this lens..
