Re: 14mm or wait for the 16mm?

It is a conundrum. Both are wide angle, although the 14 is significantly wider. I have used both equivalents with film. The 16 is much easier to use without getting tilts and perspective distortions. You really have to be careful with the 14. One the other hand Fuji has chosen to show off their lens making abilities again with the 16. It is going to big and expensive. An F2 would have been much nicer in the size, weight, and cost departments. The 24 mm on 35mm film was Galen Rowell's favorite focal length.

If it were me I might get the 16-55 and eliminate a separate wide angle.
