Given the recent reviews/tests of the 18-55 appearing recently on this forum, I am wondering which lens makes the most sense as a next lens in addition to the zoom.

Although the 35 get phenomenal raves, it appears as though the 18-55 is quite sharp wide open at 35, just a stop or two slower, so one loses some subject isolation, but still has good capabilities.

The 18's seem matches except for a stop.

It would seem the 60 makes the most sense. The 18-55 is appearing soft wide open per recent comments/test and as such for portraits with good subject isolation, the 60 makes a lot of sense. Also, the 60 gives me macro capability which the 18-55 does not have.

Thoughts?

Hmm... I still would go for 35mm 1.4 and wait for 14mm (or 12mm zeiss) I don't have any experience with 60mm at all so I can't comment there. I am hoping that fuji will relese longer telephoto like 70-200 some day (or 55-200) but I really wish to see 70-200 2.8

Take care
