looks like its on the x-t3 to.
Just to say I bought this camera with this lens in silver recently and love it, my first Fuji camera, I heartily recommend it!
Not a great vlogging camera as the screen doesn't flip out for a front view, and that lenses is probably not wide enought for vlogging anyway.

BUT this is a fantastic camera, I love mine for photography.

It depends. They have cheap, mid range and high end. Most are good and slimier priced to other brands.
I the issue comes with the metal bodied mid range lens's. I think a lot of people would be happier for them to just be made cheaper.

Take the 18-135. Optically its poor, but its WR (who on earth is going to use F5.6 in the rain?) and it weighs a ton. And it costs about 3x as much as the optically superior Nikon version. And any Fuji lens of this price or less is far superior tbh.
As your not going to see a pro with a 18-135 why dont they just throw the glass in a plastic body and halve the price?
Like what they did with the 35mm F2.

They are. Infinitely better choice for Sony shooters in terms of affordability and range both native and third party, especially as regards mid range zooms, plus upgrade potential to full frame.

You pay for the quality. Fuji lenses are way better than most other brands. It’s near impossible to get a bad fuji lens
Got this myself. Bought a 50m lens second hand aswell for portraits and love the quality. I forgot the difference in quality vs a phone

You can buy great refurbished lenses at Fujifilm UK, like new, but cheaper prices. The lenses are absolute quality, with maybe one or two exceptions.
If you go for this deal then do yourself a favour and trade the 18-55 towards the 16-55 lens. The latter is nicknamed the "bag of primes"

Yes, and with no OIS but the sharpness of images makes it a worthwhile investment.

I get your point but I switched to mirrorless because of the weight difference compared to my dslr. I prefer using my three primes. I tried the 16-55 on my xt30 but it handles better on the xt3.

I use it on the X-T2. TBH my cheap K&E tripod copes well with landscape orientation but struggles when i switch to portrait due to the shift in the centre of gravity.

That may suit what you take pictures of - but id hazard to guess most people who buy a x-t30 do not want to lug a kilo of lens around on it.
The 18-55 is realistically the biggest lens youd want to use on this, with a grip. Without a grip even the 18-55 is to big.

I dont deny the 16-55 is good, but the cost and weight make it a very niche investment. Compared to a smart phone the 18-55 on a x-txx is like god to.
