Re: 18-55 - IQ enough? If so your best option if not need extra telephoto

$400?

I got mine for £238 white box.

I'd shop around.

But do buy new for sure, I'm a buyer and seller on ebay and FBMP and know there are some dogs going round the used market well used and worn touted as 'new' or 'opened never used' etc.

$400 ain't bad though. Just I know you can get it cheaper

not sure if they sell USA

If you're willing to wait a few weeks from HK you can get the price I paid but hassle with warranty so a small gamble  I'm hoping such a well built lens will never go wrong, has never happened to me before with other brands even cheap kit lenses so I hope unlikely.

The link I posted for e-infin is legit.  I cannot speak for other than their UK service but I get a lot of gear there and Fujifilm UK have twice honoured repairs under warranty on Fuji gear I bought from e-infinity to date
