It is sharp with great color and contrast.

The lens is solidly built...metal casing which gives it a quality feel.

I found this to be one of the best zoom lenses I've ever used.

I am neither a techy or a pixel peeper. I have owned Canon and Nikon DSLRs with a a variety of zooms including kit zooms, Tamron 17-50 2.8, Sigma 18-50 2.8 and the Nikon 17-50 2.8. My original plan was to buy the XE1 with the kit and then accumulate the primes. Frankly, other then the 35mm 1.4, I see no reason to buy any of the other current Fuji primes on the market (that does not mean I would not consider future primes, especially any pancakes). I do want the 35mm for it's well reviewed sharpness, bokeh and speed for low light.

As far as I am concerned, the Fuji 18-55 is second to none. It is sharp with great color and contrast. It has decent bokeh (especially at 2.8 which of course is not constant). It is a fantastic walk around lens with the ability of capturing pro level images.

I am also waiting to see Fuji's WA zoom which should be released in 2013.

Do not hesitate to buy the XE1 in combination with this lens. considering the body is a $1000.00, the lens for an additional $400 is a real bargain.

I shoot weddings for a profession and use Nikon when I work (D4, 24-70mm F2.8, 70-200mm f2.8 etc etc). However, when we took the family holiday to Europe this summer, I left the D4 home and packed the X-pro 1 instead. I didn't want to change lens often (35mm 1.4, 18mm f2.0 and 60mm F2.4) and so I bought this lens 2 days before i left. I'm glad i bought it! The zoom is great for quick framing and compositions, especially when you have kids that move around (,though of course the xpro1 really isn't a kids/sports camera!). For still portraits and travel shots, this lens was sharp and focused well. I think i had lot less mis-focused shots compared to my 35mm 1.4. In the end, this lens remained on my xpro1 for about 95% of the time during my month long trip. The lens is solidly built...metal casing which gives it a quality feel. The images where sharp and i had only some out of focussed shots. The image stabilization worked and paired with the xpro1.. I was able to do well in low light situations. Although it is not a constant aperture lens, i barely felt the F4 difference. In the end, i liken this lens to my nikon 24-70 F2.8 work horse. A keeper in my books. I will probably sell the 18 F2.0 and 60mm F2.4 as they get little use. At this price, I think it makes a great addition to most photographer's line-up.

This is a fast well made lens. It's optical quality matches Fuji's primes. You loose nothing because it's a wide zoom. Pixel counting reviews are available elsewhere but in the real world of photography it won't disappoint. It's balance of contrast and sharpness is brilliant.

Fujifilm is very serious about their gear, and this zoom is a great example of how serious they are. Typical zooms these days are throwaway lenses, a placeholder until you have more money to purchase a proper lens. Not true of the Fujifilm zoom. Image results are superb on the XE1. Depth of field at f 2.8 is miniscule. This is a solid piece of gear, a pleasure to work with.

I bought a Fuji X-E1 and this lens and left for Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies. I found this to be one of the best zoom lenses I've ever used. I took a lot of photos of glacier covered mountains, frothy, turbulent rivers and beautiful Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. The images have an almost 3D quality and are incredibly sharp with beautiful accurate color throughout the full 18-55 range. If you only can buy 1 lens for your Fuji camera, you can't go wrong with this well built, metal body lens of, course, I love my 35 mm F1.4 and the Fuji 60 mm F 2.4 Macro lenses, as well.

Taking landscapes and street photos is great fun again and so easy and comfortable. All of my DSLR stuff is up for sale. I love the
X-E1 and all of the Fuji lenses and have revived my Zeiss Contax lens with an inexpensive lens adapter. I feel like I have the best of all possible worlds.

Don't pay attention to AF issues, if the review was written before July 23, 2013. Fuji releases firmware updates for camera bodies and lenses and I love the speed of all these lenses.

I swear these Fuji lenses are better than my pro Nikon and Canon lenses.
Lightweight and sharp even wide open!

I just received my fuji x-e1 three days ago. Before receiving, I was worried that I might need to carry 55-200 mm for portrait shooting because some reviews say that focal length of 55 mm is soft until f/8.

I tested it at 54mm f/4.0. The image is still very sharp and has decent DOF. This is a big bonus. 55 mm is still good enough to do portrait photo.

I do not need carry 55-200 mm for portrait shooting during travel with lots of walking.

This lens is what everyone says it is......sharp,contrasty,smooth while zooming but noisy in focusing. All that is true but I have two more adjectives to describe its functioning...whirring/grinding on start-up lasting several seconds. Bought the kit on April 22 from Amazon. Have shot a couple of thousand photos. Great results. Nice to use if a bit front heavy.
Now, the not so good. This past week I turned on my Fuji gem because it is a beautifully crafted camera and I heard an unpleasant grinding/whirring sound coming from the lens . It was very prominent and lasted several seconds and was worse when the camera was tilted to the left on start-up. Why tilt the camera? I was turning it on and preparing for a vertical shot and as I did I heard the unwelcomed grinding sound . The images after the event were fine. I suspect the gyros inside are malfunctioning even with the latest firmware. Very disappointed but things happen. This lens has been handled with respect so I really don't know what might have prompted the malfunction.

I printed a Fuji repair form from the Fuji site and sent the lens to Fuji repair in Edison ,NJ August 21,2014. They received it on August 22,2014. Now let's see how good Fuji is on warranty service on a four month old pampered lens. It would be nice if they replace it with a new one but time will tell. They offer a reconditioned replacement as an option for speeding up the process. I find that very considerate but my lens is "as new" so I declined a reconditioned one.
Basically this lens is a good image maker of quality construction compared to other kit lenses. But remember, this is no cheap lens at $599 retail an $499 currently on sale. Still ....$300 more than other kit lenses .
