Pros:The main benefits are the lightness and compact size, it is carried everywhere and its range of 16-50 makes it very versatile. It also has the OIS, which allows to use much longer shooting times than optics that lack it, partly remedying its low brightness; I don't make videos but this feature is probably very interesting even for those who start shooting. Excellent quality/price ratio. Autofocus good....
Cons:... but in non-optimal light conditions it loses shots. Not a blade, with intermediate openings is sharp enough but nothing phenomenal. I would have preferred a ring to adjust the opening on the lens. The brightness leaves something to be desired.
Opinion:Paid about 160 euros, at this price I really do not feel like complaining. The lens works well and allows you to get by a bit in all scenarios since it offers both a fairly pushed wide angle and a light canvas. However, it must be considered that we must have good light conditions because the lens is not very bright, we can earn some stops thanks to the OIS but do not expect to take photos at night. It is true then that it is built entirely of plastic but honestly it does not bother me, once mounted it remains firmly attached to the body and if this keeps low price and weight welcome. Very good in my opinion to start with, it is useful even for the most experienced with better kits thanks to its versatile focal range and great portables that always make it useful.
Pros:Lightweight, fast, crisp AF in standard light situations. Used price gifted
Cons:Made of plastic like toy cameras. Bad plastic bayonet to handle with care.
Opinion:If you overcome the rock of construction in bad plastic, for what it costs it is a real bargain. It's really sharp between f5.6 and f11. It has a very fast and quiet autofocus. It weighs so little that you feel like you haven't attached anything to the car. With light sources in the frame or just outside the edges it's bad, with crazy flares. They are so intrusive that if you want you can use them to compose surreal photos. The absence of the diaphragm ring is not a problem because you manage it with the wheel. It is fantastic to take on holiday, coupled with the 50-230 you are very light and bring home good photos. Paired with the xt-10 I also had some landscape photos selected for public exhibitions, in the middle of most of the photos taken with nikon, canon and sony flagships. This testifies that the beautiful photos are in the photographer's head and not in the metrics and cameras. Having said that, I normally prefer to go out with 18-55 because it's a little brighter and contruded well. Let's say that to take him on the exits of several days when you are already overloaded with other things I highly recommend it. I hold it tight and if it were to break I would buy it back right away
Opinion:I purchased this zoom kit lens along with my first mirrorlles, a Fuji XT-20, it's an all-plastic zoom, compact but really lightweight. I have seen, for the little I understand, that it produces good quality images with excellent levels of clarity. Being such a light and versatile lens it is great to carry around in everyday use, and quietly provides excellent performance, less suitable in the evening as it is not bright. It has fast, quiet and accurate focus, It has great sharpness for a zoom kit lens already at f/5.6, at f/6.4 you really get the best results. It pairs perfectly with the XT-20. Surely there is much better, but purchased used little by little, it is worth having it, even if you use it only occasionally, for its versatility.
Pros:Exceptional optics, plastic but very robust, precise and quiet.
Cons:No cons, apart from the brightness, but it's a little detail.
Opinion:This objective is located in the second-hand market at a very affordable price and provides respectable performance. Okay with the various cameras in the X series : I have XE1, XM1 and XT1 and I feel great with all of them. Quality is not afraid of comparisons with other cameras (not full frame of course). We must never forget to use the lampshade which is really indispensable.
Opinion:Bought bundled with the xt-20 for a palyable price. I had planned to support a fixed focal point immediately, but when I saw the first results I decided to wait. For more than a year it was my only goal. At F8 it is very sharp on all the focal points. The stabilizer works well and the AF is sufficiently accurate and fast. In short, a kit lens that made me forget the previous experiences not really exciting with this class of goals.
