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 build quality, sharpness, lightness, compactness

Cons: Loss of sharpness at maximum opening, not ideal for those who make videos, powder that slips into the dials

Opinion: With regard to this lens I heard so many words of praise that I influenced the purchase of my current body machine (which had it in kit, in fact). If, however, it is true that it is a kit objective with an extra gear, you should not pull the bar of expectations too high: its performance is not compatible with those of professional goals, as you often hear around. This is because its much-vaunted sharpness is higher than a normal kit lens, but fixeds of a certain level or professional zooms are another story. Moreover, at maximum opening, expect a rather marked drop of the same. Compared to its competitors, it is a classic 18-55 stabilized but offers an extra edge in the aspect of the opening (practically an extra stop) and the construction quality (entirely metal). If we exclude the MFT world, we can also add to the list the extreme compactness and lightness. Think that it manages to be perfectly balanced on an X-T20, a camera that in terms of weight and size could play in the same category (or almost) as smartphones. This compactness is paid for with a pronounced excursion to the outside of the inner barrel when used on the longer focals, but the excellent build quality makes sure that the structure remains stable and the excursion soft and without any clogging... but not exactly silent. If you find yourself making videos with this goal, remember not to zoom too fast if you don't want to hear the (albeit pleasant) whip of the barrel moving forward in the audio. And while you've avoided extreme focus changes, there's a pretty marked perspective distortion in the transaction. Another small feature is the fact that the dials have a texture of the right density to make you fit grains of dust that don't end. In general it is a product not without defects but certainly of high quality and can probably give you the best photos that you can take out from um lens belonging to the same category. Very happy with my choice to have taken it in kit, but I probably would not have bought it again separately, since it is still offered at a price that, honestly, is a bit high.

Pros: Construction, sharpness in the middle, stabilizer, size, value for money in the used.

Cons: full-opening edges.

Opinion: I have been trying this for two months, I have read a lot in this forum and also in the various reviews, I give my opinion with my example: after several tests at home and in daily use, I can say that it is a good optics at both 18 and 55 in the middle part has a good sharpness that becomes very high to diaphragms 5.6; its weak point are the edges, at full opening is nothing that, however at 5.6 recovers a lot and becomes very good, losing slightly to more closed diaphragms, excellent stabilizer, very good construction even if it is not tropicalized. The MTF data of the various American and German forums give me reason, but one thing everyone says: you have to find the good specimen, because actually there are specimens that do not have this yield and therefore the various comments of very disappointed users can find a reason, I can say that I was lucky. I highly recommend this zoom for the value for money in the used that currently twists, it's worth them all.

Pros: Light, well built

Cons: A lot...

Opinion: Let's be precise, this lens is described as one of the best targets of Fuji's X system, compared even to the various F4 of the FF, if it plays right with the 24-105/120 old canikon that... They're embarrassing of them. The 18-55 is nothing more than a kit lens, overrated, soft, without microcontrast, spherical aberration that causes Blur's problems, uncertainties of AF, someone compares it to 16-55, clash in which he comes out with broken legs... Even at surrender, despite the stoppage of advantage, it also beats the 16-50 that has the same "difficult" contrast with closed shadows, construction inlow but solves really well and has no problems of Blur, with the money saved we come out much of the 35 1.4 that could really teach what a beautiful photo is!
