Most of my shots are around 24-75 (full frame).. although my 18-200 had quite a bit of use at 150-300.. but i'm willing to go narrower range with better quality...

maybe primes in the future. but a zoom serves me well.. the fuji 16-55 looks nice but read it may be like 78mm ! that sounds like a big lens.

the olympus will have a constant 2.8 which also looks nice... maybe brighter would mean lower iso an d lower noise... although i think fuji will come out with a 2.8 as well ??

money is not too much of an object.. i paid $800 for my nikon. so i wouldn't care if i paid $1000-1200 for a good zoom..

Both of those lenses will be big. The fiji XE1 with 18-55 can be had for $799 righr now, primes are on sale for a few more weeks. I looked at the Panasonic GX7, nice camera, fuji has less noise and better lrnses. I was not imoressed with Chinese made Olympus lenses, i got  2 decentererd 45mm. I like the  panasonic & Sigma m43 lenses if you go that route.

good luck
