Excerpt: I use this lens with my X-E1 for keeping with me at all times for those shots "I wish I had my camera". to capture. Also, for street photography and landscape. It is not the fastest lens for focusing, but overall, I am very pleased with the performance of this lens.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is not the 3.5-5.6 cheaper alternative kit lens. This lens is solid and the image quality is excellent. It has Optical Image Stabilization. I'm not too crazy about the protruding zoom element though. Size wise, this lens is a darling to the point you'd want to hug it!
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
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
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.
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.
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.
