ONE VERY FINE LENS!!
1 week ago
Excerpt: Please don't confuse this lens with a kit lens - it's far, far better than any kit lens by any other manufacturer. This lens is very sharp and produces excellent shadow detail. When used on the X t1, in Velvia film mode, the color is beyond Leica quality. That Fuji glass is exceptional has long been an accepted fact; that this relatively inexpensive mid-range zoom is so very, very good makes it a value indeed.
Excerpt: I bought this as a kit with XE-1. really impressed with the built quality of this lens, considering the super value when you purchase it as a kit. It is built with the same attention to details as the Zeiss Touit series. The sharpness and contrast are superior.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: ...but...I kept looking at the 18 to 55 focal length for an all-around lens... the f/2.8 -4 aperture is a little faster than many other-brand kit lenses. This is a solid performer... Feels good to handle.. Images are great. I use this with the x-T1 and keep the setup on auto ISO. There is almost always enough light to get good images.
A great lens but the price is high (as are all Fuji lenses).

Summary: This is my preferred lens. Although I did get the kit lens with the camera, I use this lens instead. I recently took it on a trip to Arizona where it performed flawlessly. I recommend it if you can afford it.
Summary: I'm more of a prime lens shooter but this is great for when traveling with one lens to cover slightly wide to normal views; well made,responsive, solid design works fine on X-E1. Would like to see Fuji come out with a wider range ie: 14 -85+ and with click stops.
Excerpt: The Fujifilm xf 18-55mm is an excellent all purpose lens. This lens covers the range from medium wideangle to short telephoto. With a maximum apeture of f2.8 it is bright, very sharp, and exhibits excellent build quality. I use the lens on my Fufi X Pro 1 and X T1 with outstanding results. The autofocus with this lens is fast and accurate on both cameras, but extremely fast on the X T 1.
Excerpt: I recently picked up an X-E1 along with the 18-55mm.All i can simply say is that this lens competes with the best of them.There is nothing negative to say about this lens, and since i bought a "demo package" X-E1 and 18-55 at a very low price, nothing beats it. It's fast, tack sharp and easy to handle. And it's focal range is perfect for what i do. I do most kinds of photography except for action and sports and this lens is superb!
Summary: Very nice and useful lens, good autofocus, nice flares and compact design. Metal body, very good picture quality! Price wise affordable... What else to say, I buy it for my x e-1 camera and I'm wiry happy how everything work.
