The Fuji 18mm lens, ofter overlooked as the 'worst' lens in the fuji X lineup, well let you tell you, this lens is awesome.
To test this lens out I though I'd head off and only use the 18mm all day, as such I recently headed to London for quick day trip and took with me the Fuji XE1, 18mm lens and a polarising filter. The filter was a quick addition as I enjoy being able to control reflections and also you loose 2 stops of light so it acts as a kind of ND filter, great for shooting wide open on a bright day, which is most certainly was.
Whilst in London we took in a fair number of sights as we only had the day, having one lens was great as I wasn't tempted by the usual 'I bet this will look better with this lens' thoughts that usually go through my head moments before changing to a different lens and a few moments before I miss whatever I wanted to shoot because I was changing lenses.
I can safely say that this lens has it covered if you need a lightweight, compact and simple lens for walk-around photography, it renders some nice bokeh in the right circumstances and is a very nice width, not super wide but still able to be used for a bit of street photography.
That's it for this blog post, I've kept this one nice and image heavy, so check them out and pop your thoughts down the bottom.
