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: Compact, lightweight, above-average kit optics

Cons: not WR and with some compromise to accept!

Opinion: To be an "optical kit", it is undoubtedly an above-average quality goal. The construction quality is typical of fuji... far from plastic, solid, well assembled. The optical quality is good but of course we are not at the levels of a "prime band" lens and in terms of definition and detail this 18-55 inevitably loses the comparison compared to Fuji's 16-55, but on the other hand weight, size and impact on the wallet are much smaller. Negative note the absence of tropicalization. In addition, at maximum opening something is lost in terms of sharpness. For the price, versatility and transportability, slow in my opinion very good.

Pros: Cost, lightness, quality to be a kit zoom

Cons: Lack WR

Opinion: To be a slow kit has no comparison with the competition. In relation to its cost the quality is more than good. The construction is excellent for a kit lens. Nothing plastic, nice rings. The sharpness I find more than good, perhaps at full opening it drops a little. I feel good as everything to do although obviously shooting with the fixes is another thing. The stabilization is excellent. The judgment is more than positive I gave a nice 9.

Pros: Construction, lightness, cost

Cons: Optical quality, poor AF

Opinion: It is a kit lens, well built and bright compared to the competition, but still a kit lens. On the web you can hear all the colors, such as the one that at 18mm is better than the Xf 18 f2. Do not listen to useless tests of pixelpeepers, the image that returns the zoom and flat, that of the 18 has character and three-dimensionality. As a yield it is more like fujicron, although it does not have that sharpness and not even the speed and precision in the AF, precision that indeed leaves enough to be desired. Perhaps it should be added that it is stabilized, but I do not care. Sold without regret to finance 23 1.4.

Pros: Small, light, well built.

Cons: Optical quality, autofocus.

Opinion: Small and light lens, well built. Well-clutched rings and great quality to the touch compared to the optical kits of other brands. Usually sold for free or almost with Fujifilm bodies. Stabilizer ok. Sharpness does not excel, especially at maximum opening. Overall optical quality at a minimum of disastrous focus distance. I don't know how it's possible but my copy also has a lot of maximum opening color aberrations, and that's very strange because they should be corrected in the room. Autofocus by my pretty slow standards, but it may depend on the body (X-T20). The diaphragm ring doesn't have the numbers printed on it. Generally rather disappointed.
