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: Excellent "gem" usually in kit

Cons: It's not like a fixed

Opinion: It is the first fuji lens that has accompanied me since its purchase in kit with the xt1 camera body. Since 2012 it is still in production and if we read everywhere it is a super estimated goal. Fuji gave us an exceptional gift, just compare it with the plastic counterparts of other famous brands.... better not to say anything else. It is in my opinion one of the most successful zooms ever, especially when compared to the price although constantly increasing. The range 27 - 80 mm equivalent is one of the most suitable for any type of photography except macro or super zoom niches. It can give wonderful shots, especially at apertures between 5 .6 and 11 mm and in the intermediate range of the zoom. For the rest, everything has been said, including one of the "few" defects or the low light. But in the face of such a "gift", everything cannot be wanted. Soon I will try his direct antagonist 16 55 2.8 fixed , whose yield I am certainly superior. But the weight....... ?! When it will be I will be able to tell you ....

Pros: Quality of materials, sharpness, excellent brightness for a kit lens

Cons: None for the cost and type of goal

Opinion: Excellent goal, in my opinion the best among those supplied in kits by the various brands. It is sharp and allows you to take home great shots. Also perfect for getting around with a single lens. AF more than good, always accurate in the single with X-T1. I've never tried it all the time. Taken used at 270€, it is very good value for money. Advised!

Pros: Excellent mechanical build quality, feeling of robustness. Beautiful photos, sharp and very vivid colors. The excellent stabilization makes this lens very valid in the realization of the movies.

Cons: I did not find any faults but only some compromises.

Opinion: Excellent speed in focusing, the sharpness is excellent in the center and good at the edges and the photos it makes are really nice. The lens is very light beautiful and comfortable. For the rest I have not found obvious defects for this reason my overall judgment is more than good. It will not be a professional lens but not even kit because it is really good. I would be curious to compare it with the 16 55 to see the differences not going to enlarge the image to 300% but looking at it on a 100% monitor without thinking about it for an hour. I think many would not notice the difference.

Pros: construction, size and lightness; optical rendering

Cons: for now none

Opinion: I have this lens for a few months and replaced the fuji 23 mm without any regret. I am not interested in the in-depth technical characteristics and therefore I am content to evaluate positively the set of pros that I have indicated; it is an extremely useful perspective in many situations and currently the one I use the most. Street and landscape, of course are the fields where it excels. I do not think it is a travel lens if alone (more suitable the 16-80) but it is still very versatile. The ability to deactivate OIS with a key is very useful.
