I jumped on the X-Pro 1 early after release, and wasn't able to get a hold of the 35/1.4 straight away, so I grabbed the 18 and 60. Because I'm more of a wide or normal shooter than tele, I used the 18 as my primary lens for quite some time. I'm really glad I did, as it forced me to get to know the lens well, and form my own opinion. I'm convinced this lens is severely underrated.

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 purchased my Fuji XP1, 35mm, 60mm lenses from Japan in March and additionally purchased the 18mm lens from Amazon in May.
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.

The smallest fast lens for your Fuji. It's got a brilliantly fast f/2 aperture that helps it work in very low light conditions. I love that it's so small. It's basically a pancake. I have no issues with the lenses sharpness or performance at all, it's downright awesome. My biggest issue is with its sealing. The lens racks the elements back and forth during focusing and the front barrel moves in and out which causes the lens to suck in dust. After only two weeks, the lens started showing signs of dust inside the front element with no way to clean it. moreover, one of the dust pieces inhaled was HUGE and created a terrible looking flare spot in harsh light. I send the lens back to Fuji and they promptly replaced it but now, even the new unit is showing signs of dust inhalation. This is unfortunate because the lens is otherwise spectacular. Well, except for the hood. It's a retro looking rectangle hood that looks great but that's about it. The hood is finished in a thin anodize that wears off the corners quickly. The design of the hood also makes it impossible to use a normal lens cap and so Fuji provided this rubber cover for the hood that just falls off with the slightest bump. I'm honestly surprised I have not lost it yet.

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.

Very compact foot print, though it does not make my Fuji XA-1 pocketable, but definitely more portable than most fuji lens, except perhaps the f2.8 pancake. However, this is a much brighter lens than the pancake and just a little thicker. Despite some poor reviews, I've taken fantastically sharp photos and its great in low light with the low noise nature of the fuji system to begin with! Overall, I love this lens.
