Hi guys,

2 weeks ago I bought the XE 1 with the kit lens 18-55 - I love this camera and shoot jpegs only.IQ is head to head with my DSLR but more easy to carry around.

In the beginning I thought the slow AF is not issue but this weekend I had moving subjects indoors and I missedt some good shots - have to get used more to the camera and how it reacts.

Looking through this forum I notice that nearly nobody uses the 18 mm lens. My camera shop has a 2nd hand one for 265 $, pretty good pricing!

The reason to buy would be

a. small and pocketable

b. a bit faster.

c. fixed lenses help you to improve your photography

Any help and advice wouldl be appreciated.

I'd get it without thinking for that price if you like 28mm equivalent angle of view. It's the lens I have literally glued on the camera when on holidays, street shooting or walks.
