I had 3 x18-55 lenses and 2 x 16mm lenses. I planned to sell the duplicates. I've heard both of these can be prone to issues. I took quick test shots with all 5. I couldn't tell the difference between any (compared to the others of the same type). I wouldn't sweat it unless one looks clearly bad, like you can't get a decent shot with it.
