I got this lens for free with the X-E1 and overall I would say it offers excellent value. The build quality is generally very good, the lens is quite solid without being excessively front heavy. The zoom action is very smooth; unfortunately the same can't be said for the manual focus ring which has a dreadful throw. The aperture ring is a bit loose and can be turned by accident: for this reason I always turn the camera off when it goes in my bag. Image quality is fairly consistent across most ...

One of the best zooms i've every used, focus is super quick & silent, image stability is second to none. Nice metal & solid feel, aperture ring is awesome to use. This is no "kit lens" its quality plus!! Comes with decent shaped plastic hood, would prefer a nice metal one but cant complain. Does zoom creep a tiny bit when carrying over your shoulder. This has been a work horse already, so nice that its hard to take off even for the stunning fuji primes. Very Versatile!! for landscapes to ...

I shoot with the big guns for clients, but for my personal projects and street work, I'm now using the Fuji X system. I am very impressed with the 18-55 Fuji zoom.

I have owned the Canon 7d and 17-55 2.8 combo twice.  Both times the 17-55 2.8 was stellar and did not disappoint.  But at more then $1000 for just the lens, I would have been very angry if it was anything less.  The Fuji 18-55 lacks the constant aperture of 2.8, but it is less then half the size and close FAR less money.  However, as sharp as the Canon 17-55 was, I think that the Fuji is just a little sharper.  I loved the Bokeh that the Canon lens gives, not as nice as a FF but pretty good ...

I love this lens. Sharp, optical stabillisation and relatively fast compared to most other kit zooms, the main reason I bought the XE1. If you can only have one lens for all occasions, this should be it. Problems: A bit wider and longer would be great.
