Pros: Decent image quality. Well built. Precise mechanics.

Cons: Aperture stops are not marked. Image Stabilising is mediocre. Not wide enough on the wide end and not long enough on the long end. And too dark at the long end.

Opinion: I have this lens for a test (second hand, about EUR 250, mint condition) and I may keep it until Fuji delivers the 16-80 lens promised for next year. I would not buy this lens new though - as local shops want over EUR 600 for a new one! Way too expensive compared to equal lenses from Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Tamron, etc. Basically lack of aperture marks and price are the disappointments but the quality of the images is good. So if you can get this lens cheap and you do not need aperture stops, then this is good optics. Warning: newer samples are said to be built outside Japan. The one I have is made in Japan.

Pros: General quality, quick AF, construction (as usual of Fujifilm house!), opening from 2.8 to 4, stabilization, weight and size.

Cons: Paralight and front cap do not last over time. Since it has a diaphragm ring, it would have been appropriate to have the opening values printed on the barrel.

Opinion: The classic ultra-cheap 18-55 kit to start shooting without having to faint? Absolutely not! We are not facing the usual 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 of Nikon or Canon house. And in fact, this lens does not cost 100 euros but about three times. This Fujinon allows an opening of f/2.8 to 18mm, then close by a single stop, f/4 therefore, at 55mm. It has optical stabilization (which can be deactivated with a special button placed on the barrel) that works well, even in the video field. I started shooting with this lens almost 2 years ago, and now, now, now, now to the transition to older brother Fujinon 16-55 f/2.8, I still feel not to sell this optics, to keep it as a "reserve" or, why not, to prefer to the heavy and bulky 16-55 in all those situations in which the latter should prove too uncomfortable and uncompact. There is no tropicalization, but for the price range I do not feel like I consider it a defect. That said, if you have a tropicalized machine and you intend to take advantage of this feature, look for something else, such as the 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 or the new 16-80 f/4, although the latter, in my opinion is too expensive for what it really offers and, at that price or just over is located on 16-55 f/2.8. In conclusion, this 18-55 is a widely recommended optics, especially to those who want quality in a small body well built and at a fair price!

Pros: Sharpness, Brightness, Zoom, Stabilization, Build Quality, Used Price

Cons: f4 at 55mm, Lamplight

Opinion: I had taken it used 4 years ago with an X-E1 to enter the world fujifilm mirrorless and immediately left me speechless even as a non-lover of zoom all-rounder. Forced to use at least one zoom all do for photos in disco bars and events, I had tried quite a bit between canon and tamron but the price quality of this lens is unparalleled. The only "sin" is the f4 at 55mm which for low light work is a bit dark and you would certainly prefer a f2.8 but sincerely with the iso yield of the fujifilm bodies and the stabilizer is compensated quietly. P.S. broke me because of me a year ago, bought back immediately !!!

Pros: Lightness, brightness, construction, AF, diaphragm diaphragm diaphragm diaphragm, stabilization, optical and chromatic rendering, good sharpness even at T.A.

Cons: To find the fur in the egg the lampshade that is annoying to assemble and disassemble, a little vignette (but not always) to T.A. (but just close by half a stop.

Opinion: Target of the X-T1 kit that took my son who very kindly makes me use it. It is a very good "all-rounder" lens and - I agree with other users! - this is not the usual "plastic" lens of the other kits. It's all metal (yet it's light), very bright, very handy and well stabilized. Excellent optical and chromatic rendering. Great microcontrast. To keep and use, above all.

Pros: Solidity and construction, autofocus, sharpness, value for money

Cons: Nothing particularly relevant

Opinion: Very solid and robust lens, with impeccable construction. It has absolutely nothing to do with the classic plastic kit lenses from the brightness, from 2.8 to the minimum focal to 4 to the maximum focal. The image quality is very high, the autofocus more than good (probably also of the X-T3). Too bad the lack of references on the diaphragm diaphragm dial, motivated by the maximum opening not fixed on the entire focal excursion. The images produced by this lens in my opinion are more than good, even the sharpness is great at all focal points (clearly loses something at full opening but nothing too relevant). In conclusion, given the numerous pros, the absence of major defects and given the price at which it is offered in kit, I consider this 18-55 a really good lens and I do not feel the need to make an upgrade at all.
