New here and looking to add a fuji x system to my canon system for a small good kit. Do you guys think this lens redundant with a 23?

I feel the 18 f2 excels at being discreet and portable with very good image quality. If you don't need discretion or portability, I'd look elsewhere for increased image quality.

That said, with the price of used 18 f2's, not sure why everybody doesn't have one in their camera bag.

Its my most used lens. Def. a keeper. Optically not the best and would be great to have a 1.4 version if not too much larger, but very fun focal length and size to use.

I just ordered mine. Can't wait for it to come I really like how it draws. Artistic.

Darn it. This thread is causing my G.A.S. problem to flare up again!

More seriously, nice pics from those who submitted them, and, yes you guys have me thinking of the 18, despite me having that focal length covered by other lenses.

I had been (and still am) thinking of getting the 16mm f/1.4 as my evening walkabout lens. But it is expensive, big and heavy. The 18 is none of those, though I lose a stop. --Decisions!

The XF 18mm f2 is one of my favourites in the Fuji system. I'm not sure where its reputation of not being sharp comes from (probably a lot of it comes from people that have never used it and are just repeating what they read somewhere on the 'net...).

A couple of years ago I did a walk-around comparison with my Nikon AF-S 28mm f1.8G, and the comparison wasn't even close - the Fujinon absolutely smoked the Nikon. That's when I started selling off all of my Nikon gear...

Bought both the 27mm and the 18mm for the convenience of having a lighter and smaller kit when I need or want to. Was mostly interested on the 27mm since I'm not much a wide-angle photographer, but surprisingly I'm using the 18mm a lot.

Still didn't pixel peep the photos, but they are nice trought the EVF

The 18mm is an excellent lens. Great for walk around. Great for journalism. Smalls & stealth. It was my first Fuji lens and I still use it regularly.

I absolutely love my 18mm.
That with a Rokinon 12mm F2 and an adapted Canon FD 50mm 1.4 are a cheap fun trilogy.
