Re: First camera ever! (X-T200 w/XC 15-45) Wondering about next lenses

I have the 15-45, 18-55, and 16-80.

Of the three, the 15-45 gets the most use because: 1) it's spectacularly sharp at 15mm;

2) of its small size and light weight;

3) the power zoom can be over-ridden to give a zoom that operates more like other Fuji zooms;

4) of how wide the zoom goes -- 15mm is much wider than the 18mm of the 18-55

The 15-45 is one of the most underrated Fuji lenses. It's one sharp, small and convenient lens!

Complement it with the 35/1.4, 35/2, 50/2, or 50-230 zoom.  But don't think you need to abandon it for something better. Like I said, I have several zooms and use the 15-45 more than a couple of the others that you mention.
