18-55mm f2.8-4 R OIS vs 16-55mm f2.8 R WR

Hello

I am looking to jump into the X mount with X-T2 and a few lenses. I am considering the following two standard zooms:

1.) 18-55mm f2.8-4 R OIS -Kit lens

2.) 16-55mm f2.8 R WR

I was fixed on buying the 16-55 but the kit lens has ois(I am coming from Sony A-mount which has IBIS , so OIS would be good) and is cheaper. So Im also considering getting the kit lens and spend the money on a couple of primes.

So anybody used these two lenses? Which do you think is better? The kit lens with a couple of prime or the expensive 16-55? How is the autofocus speed and sharpness on both these lenses? How good is the OIS on the kit lens? Will I miss it if I go for the 16-55?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

Fujifilm X-T2
