It's my favorite XF lens!

And my most used one, too. The XF 35mm f1.4 is extremely sharp wide open but the XF 18mm is very good for a wide angle lens!

It is light, compact and I take about 70% of my X-Pro 1 photos with this lens. The AF feels faster than the XF 35mm lens to me. And you get good sharpnes even at f2 if you focus correctly. Moving the focus point to the right spot in your frame will yield better results than to focus and recompose:

And here is a good selection of photos I took with this lens in the past 12 month:
