18-55 DOES work with the X-P1 OVF!

Confirmed. The 18-55 does work with X-P1's OVF. It apparently works exactly like DP reported earlier. I had read another post from someone at Photokina that indicated that it only worked with the EVF.

BUT - When the lens is zoomed to 35mm or longer the OVF has to be manually switched over to magnified view. Shouldn't the OVF switch over automatically when the lens is zoomed out?? Come on Fuji! We need a FW update 2.1 by the time the lens goes on sale.

(Jeez, I haven't gotten my hands on the lens yet and I'm already frustrated )
