Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Lens
Decide on this lens to compliment the Fuji X Pro 1 I purchased. Could not afford the primes at this time and this, by the reports, is a sharp and contrasty alternative to them.
I like primes and they will probably give the ”sharpest” results overall but the zoom will be more convenient for the kind of shots I intend to use the camera for, street and reportage.
The 24mm and 35mm positions on the lens appear to be it best focal lengths wide open with the 18 and 55 not far behind (1 stop down gives good results I believe).As I shoot a lot at f5.6 I should be getting the best from the lens under most conditions.
Will give a report on the lens when I get camera and lens together in the same country (February) when I will be preparing a ”user” report on the X Pro1 and this lens, so keep watching.
