Fujinon XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS lens
The XF18-55mm is 1 of 2 new Fujinon XF lenses designed for use on the Fujifilm X-E1 and X-Pro1 mirrorless cameras. Fujinon XF lenses represent the pinnacle of Fujifilm's optical technology, with a top quality all-glass construction and a design that ensures superb sharpness and definition right across the frame. In addition to optical quality, the XF range of lenses feature fast maximum apertures to offer greater versatility in low light and beautiful out-of-focus 'bokeh' effects. The aperture can be fine-tuned thanks to the 1/3-stop settings on the aperture ring, while Fujinon's Super EBC Coating reduces reflections and boosts image quality.
First of its kind
The Fujinon XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS is the first short zoom lens in the Fujinon XF lens range. It covers a popular range of focal lengths and allows users to tackle a wide variety of subjects from landscapes with the 18mm wide-angle setting through to portraits at the 55mm telephoto end of the range. The lens structure itself is consists of 14 glass elements in 10 groups. These include 3 aspheric elements and 1 extra low dispersion element, which combine to reduce common optical faults (known as aberrations) and boost image quality. Furthermore, the 7 rounded aperture blades make for more attractive out of focus highlights (bokeh).
Fast autofocus and image stabilisation
The compact XF18-55mm lens features a linear motor driven system that helps the camera zip into focus in just 0.1 seconds. Autofocus operation is silent so the 18-55mm can be used for both stills and video shooting. The effects of camera shake are also dramatically reduced thanks to the inclusion of an OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser). This system offers the equivalent of 4 stops compensation, which gives the opportunity to continue shooting hand-held whereas you may previously have needed to resort to using a tripod.

Focus is very quick. Mechanical and body quality are outstanding. Aperture is above average for a kit lens. OIS works.
Overall the best all around lens I've ever owned. If you can only have one lens, make it this one.
The XF 18-55 is the first release in the second round of x-mount lenses from Fujifilm, and coincides with the release of the XE-1 body. It's a decently fast f2.8 (f4 @ 55) lens with image stabilisation, covering the 35mm equivalent of 27-84mm.
Included in the understated but high-quality box you have the lens of course, front & end caps, a plastic twist-on petal lens hood, a cloth pouch, manual and firmware SD update card for the X-pro 1. The lens feels like something special as soon as you hold it- it has a nice heft to it without being too heavy, and very high quality metal zoom, focus and aperture rings, which are silky smooth. Though expensive, it feels and looks like a professional manual-focus lens from film camera days, not the kind of cheap plastic feeling lenses you get with a lot of d-slrs/m4/3 etc. This is definitely a premium lens.
In operation it is straight-forward, the focus ring is furthest forward, then the zoom and aperture closest to camera. There are also the OIS (image stabilisation) and auto/manual aperture switches. As said, all controls operate very smoothly and positively, the lens is not internally zooming so extends when zoomed out, but the front element does not rotate.
Mounted on my X-pro 1 it feels nicely balanced, is reasonably compact and works nicely in all shooting modes. As the aperture ring is not marked, the selected value is shown in the lcd/viewfinder. With the OVF you get framing lines which get smaller as you zoom in, once you get to 55 it's pretty small, but still useable.
Optically it performs as I'd hoped- even better than the 18 prime at wide and sharp through the range, with excellent contrast and detail up to fully zoomed. The auto focus is fast & accurate enough, probably not quite as quick as the 18mm prime I was using before but nothing to complain about. The OIS works well allowing you more flexibility in low light. Manual focus works in the same fashion as the prime lenses, that is, much improved with the recent firmware updates.
Since it's your only option for an AF X-mount zoom at present (nov 12), £600 may seem a lot (especially if you've already shelled out for 1 or more of the primes) but I think worth it for the quality and versatility of this lens, and unless you're set on using primes this can replace all three of them and makes a great general use lens for most travel/street/portrait etc photography.
Was thinking of getting the cheaper 16-50mm lens with XT10 as kit lens. Good reviews. But went for the 18-55mm. Only had it a week but have taken many photos on holiday in London.
Very happy! Can get everything sharp, but can also play with selective focusing. f/8 seems to be a good default throughout all the zoom range for overall sharpness, but faster aperture can give nice subject isolation.
Handling quality is also outstanding – this feels so good to use, it’s very tactile with the solid build and the three adjustment rings.
This lens is sharp throughout the range, Bokeh isn't bad either. I previously owned the 35mm 1.4 and 60mm - both of which I will sell in light of this. Only negative from my point of view is the variable F stops depending on focal range - so the aperture ring is not marked. If you don't own this and it fits the bill,
The lens is beautifully small and very well built. The focusing is silent and quick (particularly on the fuji x-e2) unlike the 35mm.
The aperture is f/2.8-f/4, so this lens is pretty quick for a zoom as well.
While it doesn't hold the same sway over me as the 35mm or 14mm (I generally prefer primes) I can't fault this lens. When I go on holiday this is the one that will come with me as it's so much more versatile, without losing much at all in terms of quality.
If you are even slightly interested in this lens, you should buy it. You won't be disappointed.
This lens is very well made and is also very good optically.
The pictures that I have taken with this lens are excellent.
