The 16-50 when compared to the 18-55 is like the 27mm pancake lens when compared to the 35mm prime. Both the 16-50 and 27mm are smaller and lighter than their bigger brothers, well the zoom is not that much smaller, and they have a smaller maximum aperture. Despite those negatives, they still take nice photos. If low light isn't a big concern for you I'd say go for the 16-50, especially since it is inexpensive used.

I'm not sure Fuji would accept your analysis. Both the 27 and 35 are designated XF lenses, as is the 18-55 zoom. The 16-50 has the lesser XC designation, which for Fuji at least is a different category.

I'm sure you're right, but then again Fuji thinks they have the words fastest AF as well. 

I didn't say both lenses were XF, just that the 16-50 and 27 are the smaller brothers to the XF35 and XF18-55. Not on the same level as those lenses, but they still take great photos and have size/weight related attributes which are appealing.
