    Hello everyone, as in the topic - I am about to buy a photo camera and considering these two. The lens for the Olympus is 14/42, pretty dark one, and for Fuji I was proposed 18-55 f. 2,8-4. Could anyone give me any constructive feedback? To add, I am intested in the street photography and portraits.
    Thanks up front!

    The kits you describe give the Fuji a definite advantage in performance due it's larger sensor and better specced lens.

    Olympus and Fuji make lovely cameras, both will give great photos. The olly will have a larger selection of nice small lenses, the Fuji had nice lenses but they are bigger.

    If it's ultimate image quality you need the Fuji should be a little better, but the Olympus won't be far behind but it's lenses are smaller. The particular lens you are looking at with the Olympus is nice but has a slow aperture, there are better options available

    The fujifilm 18-55 is not your typical kit lens. It has wonderful micro contrast, color saturation, and sharpness. I am always pleased by the results when I use it. Very handy for street and the OIS works very well in low light. Can't speak for the Oly.
