Unless your stuck on getting prime lens they are could not be further in focal length or perspective.

The 10-24 would be great to have, but the 14 is a lot lighter. The 16-55 will be a brick--not very Fuji-esque, though it might handle okay on the X-T1. A f2.8 mid-range zoom is not such a big deal on APS-C--unless you're doing weddings or something.

I wanted the 23, but got a X100S instead (though you couldn't get the 23 for $750 then).

I'm looking at the 14, but I think I might go with the Touit 12 and forget about the 10-24. I had a 10-20 Sigma for my D300--nice, but I was nearly always at 10 or 20, not in between; I can carry two Fujis and two primes that together weigh less than that rig.
