So other than the aperture ring how is it better than the XC18-55? The most significant (to me) is is the larger maximum aperture which helps i n low light not just allow a lower ISO and or faster shutter speed but more light reaching the sensor seems to make the AF a little more accurate. lso, the larger aperture aids in reducing DoF when I want to isolate the subject. I suppose it is sharper as well but that's only comes into play if you want a really big print. No one benefit is enough to make be prefer this over the XC, but rather it is the combination of lots of small advantages that make the difference.
However, there continue to be times when the noticeably lighter weight and smaller size of the X-E2 + XC16-50mm are preferred, so I hang on to both.
The build quality of the lens is not plasticky in any way. The feel is solid, with substance in the sheer heft. It is smallish, with easy balance when mounted on Fujifilm's X bodies. None of this says anything about the images it is capable of producing -- that's where this lens excels. Image quality is such that some would think that this lens should cost substantially more were it one of the more popular brands.
OIS works as advertised. The only draw back is the unmarked aperture ring, which seems unusual for Fuji.
It is a really good lens value, especially if bought used on Amazon. Fujifilm X bodies are justifiably getting buzz on their ability to produce great images, and this lens belongs on them.
This lens is sharp, just as sharp as the 35 1.4, sharper than the 18, and the optical stabalizer works very well.
This may seam weird, but i feel like the price is very reasonable
As expected this lens is much bigger than the primes, and it was unsetling when first shooting about the weight and size. I also found the zoom to be a blit loose, just a tab to easy to move, though this might be personal preference.
While i almost always shoot with the optical viewfinder in my xp1, i found the overlay box a bit gimmicky and not very accurate. I found my self using the eletronic view finder a lot more ( 75% of the time?) with this lens. It is hard to judge accurate framing even with the camera making approximate parallax and zoom estimates.
