Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS Reviews

Photographyblog reviews the Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS and writes;
“Vignetting is practically a non-issue, and chromatic aberrations are present but very well-controlled. There is some barreling at the 18mm wide-angle focal length, but no pincushion distortion of note at the 55mm setting. The lens’ macro performance is rather unremarkable but its close-focus point of 30cm still comes in handy when including a foreground interest in the image, as you often do in landscape and architectural photography. “

Photoreview reviews the Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS and writes;
“In terms of build quality and performance, the Fujinon Super EBC XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS is decidedly superior to the average kit lens and very pleasant to use. All the common aberrations have been addressed effectively and centre sharpness is excellent, with edge softening admirably low.”
