Very Impressed with 18-55mm zoom on my X-Pro1

WOW. Suffice it to say I was a bit impressed with my first use of the 18-55 in anger.

They don’t make zooms this sharp do they?

My son looks at a passing plane

If they are Fujifilm, yes they do. The results are beautiful.

To think it is the kit for the XE1 leaves me scratching my head in wonder. This lens is about as far from a “kit” zoom as you can manage. The closest I’ve seen to this in a APS-C lens is the constant aperture zoom for Sony A mount (the kit for the Sony A77), but that isn’t as sharp.

AF seems quick, not as fast as M43s but quicker than the primes. OIS seems to be excellent too.

More thoughts in a day or two!
