They are all very good, no duds. There was a rumour there will be a new 35 1.4 being released with better AF motors (its AF is limited by the type of motors which were changed on later lens releases).

The 18-55 I would consider a must have. The 14mm 2.8 is amazing and almost as good as the Nikon 14-24. I hear nothing but enthusiastic posts about the 56 1.2.

I think a good starting kit would be the 18-55, 14mm and 56 1.2. That would cover most situations. The 55-210 if you need some extra length is a nice lens as well.


Also the 27 because due to its size the xt1 ends up being quite compact.
