Re: 14mm or wait for the 16mm?

I have the X-E2, 23mm, 56mm, 14mm and kit zoom.  The 14mm is by far the most unique (in a good way) prime.  The kit zoom has a lot of distortion at the wide end, and by the time the software cleans it up it has lost several mm in FL.  The 14mm is near-perfect and needs no correction.  It's a classic prime.

The new 16mm will be interesting, but it will probably be a bit too big for an X-cam IMO.  Plus I already have a super sharp 18mm f2.8 prime permanently attached to my pocket cam, the Ricoh GR.
