Tack sharp in a wide central sweet spot wide open, excellent macro and microcontrast, fantastic color reproduction, small and light, with a wonderful manner of drawing... Every bit as good as some of the Leicas I own. What's the negative? Reviews are right about one thing--the corners are never as superlative as the center. The lens is clearly optimized for shooting people, not landscape. I imagine the forthcoming 14mm will suffice for the latter, and have edge to edge sharpness and a perfectly flat field.
Flatness of field, really, is the bugaboo of this lens. If you use center point AF and shoot wide open using a focus-and-recompose technique, I guarantee you will be disappointed. The XF 18/2 exhibits fairly pronounced field curvature, so much so that your subject will now be well out of focus. It's critical when shooting the 18 wide open to choose the focus point manually or use the "multi AF" mode which chooses the focus point for you.
With that in mind, get close to your subjects, open the aperture, mind the focus point, and enjoy the wonderful manner of drawing this lens provides. A real winner in capable hands!
I use to have Nikon D7000 DSLR, but high quality pro lenses were too pricey and heavy.
I thought carefully of what I wanted. Since I'm not a pro and wanted something light for travel and high image quality is one of my top priority, I ultimately decided to switch to Fuji X Pro 1.
Today, I'll be sharing my experience with 18mm f/2 lens, 35mm f/1.4, and the 60mm f/2.4 macro.
-Fujifilm X-Pro1 18mm F2.0 Lens-
This lens is the smallest, lightest, and the cheapest feeling lens out of the three primes that are released.
Auto-focus seems faster or equal to Fuji's 35mm lens.
Manual and aperture ring feels "disconnected" do to it being focus by wire design and not mechanical.
The rubber lens hood cap, lens hood, and lens cap are poorly made. Long explanation short: it easily comes off.
So I purchased the EzFoto 52mm Tilted Vented Metal Lens Hood and now it feels better (both now metal finish), looks better, and securely fits on to the lens.
I purchased this lens primarily to cover my wide angle needs until Fujifilm releases their 10-24mm f/4 lens (planned for 2013).
After using the lens though, I may keep this lens even after 10-24mm lens becomes released.
The reason is because you can get really close with this lens (.18m) and at f/2.0, you can have the subject separated from the background even at this wide angle; furthermore, the bokeh is creamy and pleasant when you get it right. When focusing very close, slight change in angle would create an interesting composition/perspective for your photos. I think I would be keeping this lens for those creative shots.

This lens could be perfect but Fuji should address the dust issue and give us a better hood that allows the use of the normal pinch cap. In the meanwhile, I'd recommend grabbing a cheap metal vented 52mm threaded hood.

I do like this lens for its sharpness and moderate wide view - I always had a 28mm 2.8 back in my film days. I am cautious about recommending it for X-E2 shooters though. Read morePublished 9 months ago by StuE
