Is the Fujifilm XF 18mm Lens that bad?
Jan 13, 2014

Looking at purchasing a Fujifilm X-E2 and moving towards the X standard of lenses, but would like a compact 35mm lens to make it portable (pocket-able) for travel, and the range isn't huge.

I've never owned any Fuji lenses before, and from what I can tell the newer prime lenses are fantastic, but getting conflicting views of the 18mm. Ideally I'd go with the 27mm pancake for its small size, but worries the FOV will be a little to narrow for photographing scenery.

Any opinions, recommendations? I'm tempted to go with one of the 4/3 format cameras instead due to what seems to be a wider selection of glass, but then most reviews of 4/3 format glass are less critical because of the lower prices.
