I'm curious about the focus smoothness and action.
Is it loud and searching like the 35 or super smooth and silent like the 18-55 zoom ?
It's very good on the X-Pro1 for me. The EVF is brought up when the lens is mounted. It may be a little loud and searching at times, but I never would have noticed if I hadn't read about it in advance. I also read that, when shaken, the lens makes a clunking noise until the camera is powered on. That's also true, but who goes around shaking their camera lens? The images produced are great — also as advertised. I guess you could say everything you've read about the lens is true!
