Btw, do you have idea how the OVF of X-Pro would cope with this zoom lens?


The XP1 OVF frame lines will change as one zooms. I'm not so sure whether the same will be true of the wide angle zoom.

Personally, I will use the 18-55mm mainly as my walkabout lens (i.e. when on holiday with the wife and I'm reluctant to stop to change lenses). However, if it is as sharp as I believe it to be it will get more use than just as a walkabout. I expect to buy the 14mm and I have the 35mm f1.4 and short tele legacy lenses so the 18mm end of the zoom at f2.8 is a fairly generous aperture for low light work sans tripod.
