Just received my Fuji 18-55 from Japan in 5 days, wonders will never cease. It’s used but in pristine condition. Cant wait to put it where it should be on the front of an X Pro 1 but sadly the camera is in the UK so will have to wait.
All the report seem to be true about the build quality it is extremely good, all metal construction apart from the hood. The zoom mechanism is silky smooth with no looseness or creep. Here’s hoping the optical quality matches the solid build. More later on that when I get the 2 together.
