    The Fuji XF60 is one very sweet and underrated lens. I'd say it's my favorite native lens (with the 18/2 a very close second).

    Yey! Both the 60mm and the 18mm are hugely underrated, and I also love them BOTH!

    I don't think the 60 is underrated. People always praise the optics. I had one for a while. I think people just see the warts: not true macro, slow focusing, and 39mm filter thread.

    The 60mm is awesome for portraits as well.

    Nothing wrong with the 39mm filter thread. I put a filter on the filter and added a 39-52mm step up ring. Works fine with all my old Nikon filters. :)

    Zeiss 50M

    Though I may buy a 60mm for the second kit I'm building because it is cheaper than a 50f2, and has the close focus feature.

    I just find it curious that the 60/2.4 is seen as having "warts". I think it's the equal of lenses like the Olympus ZD 50/2 macro on fourthirds or the Panasonic/Leica 45/2.8 macro on m43. Both of those lenses had similarly slow AF at times and the ZD 50/2 is not a true macro yet neither of those is described as having "warts". I shot the PL 45/2.8 for years and I would say it's one of the best lenses available for m43. I think the XF60 is better. if a lens this good had been available for Sony I might never have bought my X-P1. Fuji users have a ridiculous amount of terrific lenses to choose from so a lens like the 60/2.4 gets ignored.

    I've been on the lookout for one lately. Recently picked up the Fuji close up adapters and they're fun to play with on normal lenses. Would be cool to have true 1:1 macro with the 60 and the adapters.

    Lovely rose...

    I have to agree with these two lens choices...
    Although the 230 end on the 50-230 has become one I really like.
    (have not used the other zoom distances on the lens)
