Chromatic Abberation, not cool.

S. Kowalski, Amazon
6 February 2016
  • Summary: I bought this lens to travel the world with, however I'm a little disappointed in it and I can't go back and take photos of all those awesome locations again. There is chromatic aberration on photos especially with trees and sunsets.

The auto focusing hunt put me off

C Rogers, Amazon
29 December 2015
  • Summary: Purchased the 18mm as my first prime for my XT-1. As soon as I switched it on the camera started hunting for a focus point. Looking through the viewfinder the green focus points were 'twinkling'. It sounded like the XT-1 was having a fit.

Cheap accessories and no DOF scale on the lens body...

K. Foust "KFo", Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: The performance and quality of this lens is good albeit with two issues that really irritate me. The first is the quality of the lens cap and the cap that comes with the lens hood. These two accessories are like "copy exact" cheap almost non-functional replicas of good quality pieces.

A good lens if you can get past Fuji X system limitations

JB123, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The small size and light weight of this lens were what first attracted me to it. Along with the fact that it was the widest X lens available for the original X system when released. It does make a very easy to carry package even on the heavy X-Pro1 body. Focusing is a mixed bag.

Not too good, I'm sorry to say.

Gary Quick, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The lens focus seems a little softer than the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 Lens which is the kit lens that comes with the Fujifilm XT1. Also I was surprised by how loud the lens was when focusing. Overall disappointing.

Great little lens

John, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: Delivers great quality and is very quick. My only gripe is that there is no focal plane window on the lens. Seeing as how I use this lens for a lot of street photography using zone focusing it makes it hard to know where I am at.

Sharp lens with punchy color--but......

Douglas Henderson, Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: This is my only Fuji higher-end quality lens (bought used on Ebay for $400.00) and I'm a curious why this lens design has as many optical negatives as it does for all of Fujifilm's lens manufacturing clout--together with its high price.

Just okay

Tim G., Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this lens to use at night around town and to allow me to stuff my XE1 into my pocket. It worked okay. Not nearly as crisp as the Fuji 35mm. It was only slightly crisper than the 18-55mm kit zoom. It does allow a very tight macro focus. I sold it and will likely replace it with the 23mm.
