NOT your Nikons "Kit Lens"

Rob Smith, B&H Photo
22 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I picked up this "kit lens" with my Fuji X-T1 when I switched from my old Nikon D90 to mirrorless. Let me just say the build quality and output from this lens is wonderful. The f/2.8-4 range is very usable.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Cost, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Variable Aperture

Not a "Kit Lens"

  • Excerpt: 18-55mm is the lens many cameras come bundled with and it's usually not their best effort. Not the case here.This is a great lens. In fact I believe every lens Fujinon makes is a winner. They simply don't make 'budget' lenses.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Wonderful

  • Excerpt: This "kit" lens for the Fuji line of X mount cameras is anything but a kit lens. The quality of images it produces on my XE1 are amazing. I rarely have to do much in post on these shots. Contrast is great. Sharpness is great. Colors are usually right on the money.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, TACK SHARP
  • Cons: Slow Focus

I was avoiding zoom lenses

10 June 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Great glass for a zoom

  • Excerpt: It is best used in decent light. When the light gets lower I would go with the 56 1.2 or another prime.

Good General-purpose lens

  • 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.

Not your garden variety kit lens

Jazzyag, Adorama
22 April 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Exellent Build Quality, Sharp

Better than expected

Dave R, B&H Photo
21 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this lens for most of my photography, I also have the 18, 35 and 60mm lenses. I use those lens when I want faster speed or the best resolution I can get but the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom is sharper than I thought it would be. Solid build, smooth action, small and light weight.
