Fuji XF 18-120 Lens (and 18-55 too)
1

I watched the video from DP Review this morning of the best and worst camera and lenses for 2022. They gave the Fuji 18-120 lens as one of this years worst lenses. I looked to find a more indepth review from them on this lens, but couldn't find one. Other reviewers did test this lens and some say it's soft in the corners at 18mm and quite soft at 120mm. Yet this is one of Fujis recommended lenses for the XH2 for it rez capabilities. And the 18-55 was not on that list, yet very few people complain about that lens' rez. And the 18-55 is sold as a kit option for the XT5, which is the same sensor as the XH2. I have the 18-120 lens, but I wouldn't say it's any better than the 18-55. But I did sell the 18-55, so I can't do a direct comparison today.

So people who own both or have had both, what would you say about these two lenses in comparison? And why was DP Review so down on the 18-120 lens?

Has anyone used the 18-55 on either a XH2 oR the XT5?
