Westmill: The new Sony a7iii is going make this one hard sell for Fuji.

Lens size is Fuji’s saving grace to my way of thinking. Perhaps being a joy to use has to be a big plus too. I could end up with hx1 myself. I hate the look of the Sony cameras, and I just do not get using big ff lenses on such a small body. Can’t help but think I will be part of the minority section here lol and there is no doubt in my mind that the new Sony is going to hurt Fuji sales badly.

I shall be keeping NX2 !!!! Its hard to take this seriously !
Not even a healing brush and no U points !
My verdict is they should supply it for free with the cameras.
It does not come even close as any kind of alternative for NX2
Time to uninstall ! Not even worth taking up the space on my PC.

Also ordered the 18-140 as a walkabout for when I am not in the mood for carrying a lot of weight :)
Still waiting for the D400 though... grrrrrr Please wake up NIKON !!!!!!!

In reply to:

Snaposaur: Is this worth getting on the 7100? Need a general zoom lens for my 7100 before I get some of the single focal prime lens.

Was debating between this, the 16-85 or the 18-140.

The 18-35 is an outstanding lens. However, unless you know exactly what you want, I believe this lenses short zoom range would frustrate most folk. Either the 16-85 or 18-140 would be a better option for most. Even the sheer size and weight can be a drag. For those like me that need it, then the 18-35 is worth its weight in gold :)

I have been using this lens for a while on a D7100.
Its focus has been very accurate even at F1.8.
I have used it in the studio and out in the field. As the DOF is so shallow at F1.8 it works far better in continuous focus mode when anything like close. As even the slightest movement will throw it out of focus !
You do need to check carefully if shooting a landscape etc at F1.8.
This is true of any fast lens. You simply just need to look at that tiny focus square and see what you are asking it to focus on !
Slower lenses are fine because you are covering this with more DOF.
Something to consider with this lens is that F1.8 is there if you need it and it is certainly usable ! Like any lens... it performs better when stopped down.
I use this lens mostly at F2.8. The difference being is that at F2.8 the image quality is stunning already ! For low light and or people such as weddings this lens is simply unbeatable for APSC period !
