Tested the 18-55 around the garden around the long end on a tripod, to be honest for a zoom it isn`t bad at all. Having said that I did notice it wasn`t totally consistent shooting the same subject a few times but certainly not on par with my 35 1.4 but it is a keeper for those times when you might be at a function and then one lens more or less does it all.

I traded my mint used twice 18 f2 that was part of the deal when I purchased the Xpro1 when they first came out.

Anyway, I picked up the 50 f2, what a cracking lens for size and smooth operation with Auto focus swift and more or less on the ball although I`m loving the MF with this lens. It might (might) have the edge on my 35 1.4 for IQ but time will tell on that but certainly that extra reach is very nice to have.

It reminds me a lot of my long gone Canon 85 1.8 which was a stellar copy and as I remember my Leica 90mm f2 Apo.(that will start a few minds boggling

Thanks for all your help.
