Shots taken with 18-55 Zoom on Fuji XE1. Some shots taken at the Alameda County Fair the other day. Been a while since I used my Fuji...

What's the general consensus on this lens from those of you that have one?

I have the 35 f/1.4 and 18 f/2 which work very well for my general purposes, I don't like to carry around too many lenses and these work best for my eye. However, it would be useful to have something with a little longer focal length and the thought of a little kit zoom as part of a travel set sounds like a good idea.

I have heard some say at 18mm it out performs the 18mm f/2, which would surprise me but hey, Fuji are full of surprises.

I use the 35 much more then any other lens on the Fuji.. The 18-55 zoom is sooo much better than your standard kit zooms from Sony, Nikon or Canon. I really don't use the zoom that much, I prefer to use two bodies and two lenses, but since I was w/ my wife at the fair, I decided to use the zoom.

the 18-55 is an excellent lens and if i liked to use zooms i would have kept mine.
it's a great lens for a one lens kit, walkaround lens...

Fantastic lens. I have preferred primes to zooms in the past, but the flexibility of this lens, including the image stabilization, make it a no-brainer. I may add the upcoming 27mm to my kit for ultimate portability, but you won't go wrong with the 18-55 if you pick it up.

Shame, I'd have preferred (well my wallet would have preferred) to hear that it was a little bit ropey.

I'm thinking the zoom, a 35mm equivalent and I'm done...though a spare body will be on the cards at some point, perhaps the XP1 will be my spare and a new XP2(?) will be my main camera.

Europe 2013

Been away from RFF for far too long. Went to Europe this summer to celebrate my daughter's quince (sweet 15) - she wisely chose a 3 week trip abroad over a massive party. I shot the entire trip with a Fuji X-E1 + 18-55mm kit lens (stellar combo!).

Here's the tool of choice:

and a couple of my favorites:

Liechtenstein by Carlos Echenique, on Flickr


Neuschwanstein Castle by Carlos Echenique, on Flickr

and here is the link to the set:

X-E1 in the studio: A great time shooting with the X-E1 with tungsten. Shot between 1/15 and 1/30, ISO 800, around f5 with 18-55mm, with tripod and cable release! Some grain and glow added post production. A refreshing backward journey to days before digital.

First post. First pic with the X.
New owner of an X-E1. Learning as I go.
The kit zoom to my learning eyes is a beauty.
Tough bullrush.

This is the first "kit" Focal range zoom I actually really like.
It gives surprisingly nice results and the IS works wonderfully!

at 27mm and f3.2

Capitol Hill with Rain



These women materialized while I was enjoying a burrito up on Capitol Hill in Seattle. I have never been a fan of zooms but I like this one! I just found this used 18-55 "kit" lens this afternoon and couldn't resist picking it up.

Beautiful shots! It's by far the best zoom I've used on any camera.

Thank you Dirk,

It's funny, I haven't looked at this thread in some time although I still love and use my 18-55.....wonderful lens! Just this weekend, I saw one in Glazers in Seattle selling used and called the friend who pointed me to my copy a couple of years ago (the day I clicked that pic) and so I was thinking of him as I opened the thread here.

I was enjoying many of the images on this page and especially stopped at the one from jsrockit of Sal in Harlem and then Steve's of the nicely lit lady in white. Several others earlier in the thread grabbed my attention too. I will for sure post here again and hope we can make a page two happen before long!

David
