First impressions...


Very high IQ 5*

Compactness 5*

Excellent OIS allowing 1/10sec shoot at 200mm !!

Build 4* : the aperture ring is much too easy to move and change like the 18-55mm (see cons)

Reasonable price tag given the global quality of the product 3.5*


Little play on the Xf bayonet that exists with others but which is detectable with this one due to a too tighten focal length ring, a bit unpleasant

AF might be slow in dim light

Fixation of the hood for transport is uneasy like with the 60mm and there is a risk of fall The 18-55mm is easier in that respect

Focal length ring too firm

No weather sealing
