    I updated my firmware body to 4.30 and I looked at the most up-to-date firmware for the 18-55, seems my camera already has it?

    Well done on getting a great bit of kit, you will find out just how great the XF 18-55mm really is and it`s a shame they call it a kit lens as it`s a cracking one to use.

    I'm in love with this camera!!!!! the 18-55 is mental took a few shots of my colleague at work today, and the detail in his face @55mm was incredible. It's almost too good to be classed as a "kit lens".

    When I had mine I thought it was the best kit lens on the market, but traded it in for and Fuji camera and lens.

    Part of me wants the kit lens as a general hiking/walk around lens because I know it would be excellent for that purpose.

    But if I’m being honest I’m REALLY enjoying the way using a 35 f/2 as a walk around is forcing me to get creative and I don’t want to go back to a zoom.

    That is why I ended up getting just three primes, if I want to zoom I move forward and the same for moving back and like you said it forces you to be more creative.

    I got the Samyang 12mm f/2 gave it its first test run last night photographing the stars and stumbling across the northern lights! I think I'm going to get the 55-200 first because while I love having a wide lens, I found with my tokina that sometimes I wanted that long focal length for the landscape compression.

    I had a 55-200 for a short while. Sold it because it wasn’t getting used enough. The 90 f/2 is long enough for most of my needs.

    I really want a 16 f/1.4 because of its reputation and the fact that it’s a prime. But I already own the 10-24 and I just can’t see the point in spending money for a focal length I already have covered.

    Another vote for the XT-2. I have shot billboards, app photos, and magazine spreads with it :)
