Pros: Value for money (in kit), more than good yield on the wide angle; stabilization; compactness and lightness

Cons: Yield from 30mm onwards; plastic bayonet; plastic construction

Opinion: A good lens-kit: it is not worth buying it new (about 300 Euro), but used or in kit can be a good choice. In fact, on the wide-angle side, the yield is surprising and just at 15mm (22.5mm equivalent on FF). There is obviously a bit of distortion, but the yield is certainly good and the sharpness is very good. Yield that instead drops after 30mm: at the end of the stroke (45mm) the lens is a bit soft and must be diaphragmated. Plastic bayonet like the rest of the lens, it is lightweight and very small. He suffers from flare. In short, a lens not to be despised if you know its limits and especially if it interests the wide-angle side more.

Pros: Easy handling, weight, sharpness, value if purchased used

Cons: Bayonet build quality, zoom.

Opinion: Although the construction material is cheap, as already mentioned by others, the glass lenses ensure good sharpness, to which is added a respectable autofocus (and in any case not inferior to other kit lenses) and a shorter focusing distance, almost to make it look like a macro. Its strong point, in addition to lightness and minimum bulk, is the aperture of 15mm (equivalent to about 24 mm on full-frame) which is much appreciated by those like me who love wide angles and try their hand at urban landscape photography. Great for travel or everyday photography, given its small size, in short, a lens not to be mistreated, just know the limits, which for me are still lower than the merits.

Pros: Small, very light, economical, very good optical yield.

Cons: Power zoom, plastic construction, accentuated flare.

Opinion: Taken in 2019 in kit with an X-T100, in the end I changed the camera body, but I was careful not to give away this light and excellent zoom that, net of an objectively economic and plastic construction, gives excellent quality images combined with a very interesting focal range, especially from the wide-angle side (equivalent to a 23-69 on the full format). As already noted by others, the main defect of the lens probably lies in its absurd, uncomfortable and inaccurate motorized movement, but fortunately the problem can be easily solved by assigning the secondary zoom function to the manual focus ring: in this way the zoom, while remaining electrically controlled, will reproduce the mechanical movement resulting much more fluid, Precise and fast. To balance its flaws, the positive side of the power zoom is certainly the fact that the extension of the lens does not vary (except when turned on), resulting in the same at all focal lengths. Small and light, it is not a pancake but little we miss. Good reactivity of focus, poor resistance to flare, especially in the presence of artificial lights. Being a lens of the economic line XC, obviously the diaphragm ring is missing. To note the fact (annoying for some, frankly not for me) that the lens does not communicate the precise focal length to which you are working (but you can easily adjust with a bar, even if not graduated, which appears in the viewfinder). Very cheap, practically given away if purchased in kit, it is an extremely underestimated goal, but at these figures a real best buy if you have the patience to get in tune with the peculiarities listed above.

Pros: Lightweight, compact, economical, excellent value for money, very good sharpness for its class.

Cons: Low light, (but one does not buy it for brightness). It must be known to take full advantage of it.

Opinion: The lens came in kit with the Fuji X-T200 that I purchased as a complement to the Canon 6D II kit. At first I was at the point of sending back both the lens and the camera several times. But rereading the manual and also some fuji posts in this forum, in the end I am very satisfied with this small but performing lens. I will briefly summarize the problems encountered. Shooting in abundant light conditions with the image stabilizer enabled I obtained unacceptable images in terms of sharpness, thinking that it was the fault of the lens; instead I discovered later that with the X-T200 (but it seems that it is the rule with Fuji mirrorless in general) you should not use the IS with very short times, like 1/500-1/1000 or shorter, especially with the electronic shutter. So I learned to disable the IS of the chamber in normal or abundant light conditions. The other problem was that I couldn't get decently sharp images at 15mm focal length at the top right of the frame, in subjects close to infinity or otherwise distant. Increasing the focal length the problem disappeared, but at 15 mm (22.5mm equivalent, which I use a lot) and only for subjects close to infinity, so especially in landscapes, the image appeared annoyingly devoid of sharpness in the upper right area from 3/4 from the center to the edges; a nice hassle. Well, in the end I discovered the cause: by making the focus in AF with the center point, the lens fails to focus endlessly at the edges, as if the focal plane were curved. But especially in the upper right corner (at least in my model) evidently that part of the frame suffers more than other areas this out of focus. So I found the solution: using manual focus with focus peaking combined with the depth of field bar, the sharpness improved significantly; decently sharp images over the entire frame, compatibly with this class of lens (at extreme angles you can not expect the sharpness of a 1500 € lens). For 15mm landscapes I'm fine with using manual focus peaking, precise and fast, so I decided to keep the lens. To conclude, it is a rather sharp lens that does not disfigure in comparison with more quoted lenses that I have in my Canon FF kit.

Pros: lightness, portability, sharpness, minimum focal length

Cons: Zoom operation, focal not adjustable

Opinion: Purchased in kit with Fuji xt30. I snubbed it for quite a while then carried around for its compactness and lightness, from this irreplaceable point of view: collapsed is practically a pankake and on the neck it is non-existent. Its strong point is sharpness. For me it is ideal for the street, used at 35 mm, where it does not weigh its low brightness, using it mostly at f 5.6.Il problem is to get the corresponding focal length right (but by eye you can easily do it). I almost did not use it in wide because I no longer do landscapes, but from some tests it looks good even on that side. The only valid alternative, for the weight and for my type of shots, is the xc 35. If you buy in kit it is practically given away. I consider it a great travel lens.
