Buy the Fujinon XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II

(From Fujifilm lens literature) The perfect standard zoom "XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II" employs 12 all-glass elements in 10 groups, including 3 aspherical lens elements and 1 ED lens element. The lens uses seven rounded diaphragm blades to enable fine 1/3-step (17 steps in total) exposure control. Its lightweight focusing lens and high-precision motor achieve quick and silent autofocusing, while the minimum working distance of 15cm enables macro photography. The optical image stabilization function reduces camera shake in still images and videos taken hand-held.

For FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 customers:
The FUJINON XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II lens does not feature an aperture ring in order to make it compact and lightweight. When using this lens, please update your camera body's firmware to enable aperture adjustment via the camera's command dial.

    Cheap (just 50 euro)
    Much worse then the 18-55 in: - operation - photo quality

    At first, I was used to the E1+18-55 lens, but they were stolen. But I liked the Fujifilm-camera, so I bought a T10+16-50 lens. It was a disapointment to me, camera allright but not this 16-50 lens. Never got to the quality photo's I wanted, so I bought a new 18-55 lens later on. Sorry, but it is average on everything.
    Only if you are on a budget you should buy it, nothing good but also nothing bad!
    I am an amateur with lots of quality stuff (Fujifilm and Nikon)

    Nice IQ. Very light. Quick to AF. Hood includen. 24-75 mm.
    Not hing for this price.

    For the 50 euro as a kitlens with the XT10 it is a bargain. It is extremely light and at the same time it doesn 't feel too shabby. The IQ is very nice.
