One of the first three original FX lenses, the 18mm f/2 R can be said to be one of Fujifilm’s modern classics. It was originally released with the 35mm f/1.4 R and the 60mm f/2.4 macro lenses for the X-Pro1 back in 2012.

The 18mm on the Fujifilm APS-C cameras equals 27mm, or 76.5 degrees angle of view. It is a compact lens, which makes it great for those, who just want to put their camera in the pockets and go out to shoot. This obviously makes it a natural for many street photographers, though the new lineup of the fast f/2 (and f/2.8) lenses, the 16mm, 23mm, 35mm, and 50mm, challenge the 18mm f/2’s status as the compact go to choice for street photographers. Still, for certain cameras, such as the X-E series, this is still a good choice.

Though one of the older lenses, it is still a great lens for a good price for most people, who like to shoot at the more wide end. And with the f/2 aperture it allows just a little more light than the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 kit lens, even at the widest end.
