From PhotographyBlog review, conclusion :

As the first lens in the more affordable XC range, the Fujifilm XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS is a natural partner for the equally new X-M1 camera, offering good performance whilst being small and light.

Priced at £359.99, we probably wouldn’t rush out and buy one, but the Fujifilm XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS is definitely a cut above the usual kit lenses. You can buy the X-M1 body-only, but for a mere £80 / $100 more it makes sense to choose the kit option – this is one kit lens that you won’t want to throw away.
