    For me this lens does it all! Superb value for money, it stays on my X-T2 90% of the time. Its the ideal travel/street photography lens, period.

    I like, maybe even love, this lens. It’s a Swiss army knife, do-it-all and do it well sort of fellow. Even if it’s not a Michelangelo, it’s at least a Leonardo DaVinci.

    It’s a single tool for most situations and an excellent companion for agile globe trotters.

    In daylight, autofocus is peppy, and though focus tracking can be tricky, once you learn to work with it, you can still get the shot.

    When the sun comes down is when the trouble starts. Fact is, it does get dark and you have to be extra clever to land the shot. This is especially problematic indoors but use of a flash might help somewhat. Then again, you’re out traveling the world, the museums are closed, do you really need a shot of a dark restaurant scene?

    Other than that, image brightness, sharpness, and contrast, not to mention chromatic aberration, are all well handled.

    This is no crappy kit lens.

    It’s a gift to find this kind of performance in an ultra zoom and though Fuji can’t defy physics, they tried, and did a nice job.
