Re: XA1 arriving soon..............


SLR Gear rates the Fuji 16-50 significantly better than the Canon M`s 18-55 in every aspect as well as most other reviews and opinions. SLR`s tests show the M`s 18-55 to be no more than a typical kit lens . They felt the Fuji 16-50 is " impressive" for a kit lens.

I can only go by my own testing and the M 18-55 is as good as Fuji`s fast kit 18-55, SLR gear must have had a dud . it slays the DSLR 18-55 STM & the Nikon 18-55VR let alone the junky DSLR and mirrorless kits - just a shame the bodies are lame, the Fuji XA1 looks a killer for the money !!   ...

I recommended the Fuji 18-55 because of the aperture speed and reputation for optical quality , it should cost you nothing like 600 bucks, Euros, Pounds or whatever to upgrade if you find a used one and sell the 16-50 ...
