WOW. They don’t make zooms this sharp do they? The results are beautiful.
If they are Fujifilm, yes they do. This seems to be a stunning zoom.
To think it is the kit for the XE1 leaves me scratching my head in wonder. This lens is about as far from a “kit” zoom as you can manage. The closest I’ve seen to this in a APS-C lens is the constant aperture zoom for Sony A mount APS-C (the kit for the Sony A77), but that isn’t as sharp.
More thoughts tomorrow once I’ve had a chance to properly road test this lens!
Taken with my X-Pro1 and Fujifilm XF 18-55mm lens
