From the reports so far it turns out the 16mm f2.8 is soft at f2.8 and has quite high levels of CA. Neither of this is an issue with the 18-55mm. I've got the 18-55mm myself (in an X-T3 kit) and I'm very happy with it.

Where are you seeing those reports on the 16? Could you provide links please?


This and the dpreview sample gallery.

Just to add a bit of context/balance - doesn't that same review also say 'performs better than anything Nikon or Canon has at 16mm'?
