I shot these portraits using the Fuji XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS Lens. I chopped in my 18mm prime to get this zoom lens and I have never regretted the decision. Don’t think of this lens as a ‘kit lens’, it is way better than that. The 18-55mm zoom is better than the 18mm prime at the corners at f/2.8 so there is no optical compromise here. My wife Julie has this lens in her X-E2 kit now as I have both the 23mm and 35mm primes. I don’t expect to be using this lens again for a while but I am really happy with the shots here and I can say I will never regret owning this lens. It is stellar. (updated January 2015)
