Get the 18mm prime if you:

  • absolutely need f2
  • want the smallest and lightest lens
  • want explicit aperture markings

I sold my 18mm after buying the zoom. I bought the 18mm back in April knowing that I would be selling it down the line as I saw the zoom on Fuji's lens roadmap. My ideal (personal shooting style) camera kit consists of a standard zoom, a fast prime (I have the 35mm, but is likely to be superseeded by the 23mm when it comes out) and a macro (I have the 60mm). The other two Fuji zooms are looking very tempting though. The 35mm is so nice I may keep it even after buying the 23mm.
