Re: 14mm or wait for the 16mm?

I'd go for the 14mm. It's a fantastic lens and presents a very different perspective to the 18mm end of the 18-55. While there is obviously a difference between 16 and 18, it probably wouldn't allow/encourage me to do anything particularly different, whereas the 14 does.

Where the 16 wins is in low light ability. If it's for "street" then the 16 might be a good idea. If you're looking at landscape you'll mostly be on a tripod anyway with apertures F8-11.

The 14 is a lovely accompaniment to most X bodies in terms of size and build quality. You can also get them pretty cheap secondhand/refurbished/on offer. You won't be able to find a secondhand/refurbished/price-reduced 16 for quite some time.
