Yeah I'm not that crazy about the wider focal lengths and really only use the 18-55 for landscape stuff. I'm trying to use the 18-55 more often, I just don't find it all that exciting... The XT2 handles high ISO remarkably well, IMO. For either of these photos I would have switched over to the 60 but it hunts in low light - it's super sharp but not super fast. Still, I think the results would have been better than with the 18-55. I don't take a ton of people photos except for family events. I need to start practicing though. While I have no interest in doing this for money, I think portraiture as art is a very interesting area and it would be nice to be able to take senior portraits for my daughter and her friends in 3 years.
