    The AF speed is pretty quick but hard to tell if it's quicker than my 35mm. The AF speed seems to quicken the more light there is so on bright days it should be fast.

    This is the lens that I would be most interested in on the X-E1. Everything I've seen so far points to it being very good indeed.

    I hope it's quicker than the 35/1.4! I've been itching to get it for the XE1. My XE1 was an import that came with the 35/1.4. Not too impressed with the "improvements" in AF (while using the 35/1.4 and 60/2.4) over the older firmware versions of XPro1. But hoping that with the 18-55, the speed will be noticeably better.

    Was the piggy photo shot at 55mm? Nice smooth background blur!

    It was shot at 40.7mm so near enough! The Bokeh is very nice from this lens.....very nice indeed!!
