Just sharing this as a datapoint really in case it helps anyone, but today my 18-55 died completely while I was snapping away on my X-Pro2....

Disappointing. But it went out with a bit of a bang - here’s one of the last frames (and no, it didn’t get splashed) -

Seems like it actually went out with a splash...

If you didn't love it, I wouldn't think you would care to repair it. But have you checked with Fuji about repair cost? I can't imagine it would be expensive to replace a chip or whatever this is. Definitely seems electronic.

You stopped reading the thread too soon!  I did check the cost (fixed Fuji repair price of £90), got it fixed, and it was indeed electronic.

I don’t absolutely love the lens, but it’s decent and a useful part of my kit.  And even on purely financial grounds, a £90 investment to restore the value of a used lens worth £250 or thereabouts makes sense.
