    Cons: It’s not the sharpest lens, but it’s still pretty sharp.

    Pros: Fun to use, very useful for travel, great close focus. Rendering

    Summary: The rendering is brilliant, it produces great results, some of my best photos are with the 18. Although its sometimes not the sharpest in some situations the rendering more than makes up for this, one of the best rendering lenses out there

    Cons: Distortion not removed prior to post processing on raw files, although the overall effect is simply to add a tiny amount of width to frame. Really not much of a problem. Edge of frame sharpness pretty good but not outstanding. Minor colour fringing occasionally evident at frame edges in Lightroom, but easily corrected. No lens bag included for storage off the camera. Perhaps slightly overpriced, but no more so than similar premium offerings from Pentax, for example.

    Pros: Fast and reliable auto-focus on X-Pro1. Very good to excellent image quality throughout in mid-aperture settings, in terms of sharpness, colour and contrast. Good performance in bright light, no doubt helped by a perfectly formed lens hood. Useful compact size, enabling a few primes to be comfortably carried at once, if desired. Very reassuring build quality.

    Summary: I don't really understand the somewhat lukewarm reception to this lens. Maximum aperture not quite as large as others in the Fujinon range, but for my own (mostly landscape and seascape) purposes, that is totally irrelevant. What counts is that when tested in highly contrasting light conditions it was found to perform perfectly well. In real life shooting situations, the distortion effects you may read about elsewhere are minor and barely visible unless you directly compare jpegs with raw files.
