I'm looking to simplify my kit and I'm actually selling off a few things like my 18-55mm... Before I do so, I guess I would make sure I could afford the replacement.

Any idea what the 16-80mm is supposed to launch at?

https://www.fujirumors.com/czech-store-lists-fujifilm-fujinon-xf33mm-f-1-0-for-3100-and-xf16-80mm-f-4-for-1100/

Fuji rumors linked to a Czech store that already listed the 16-80 at $1,100, but I would probably knock off a couple hundred since that same store listed the 16/2.6 at almost $900 before it came out when it sells for $400. I doubt it would be $500 under that $1,100 list price like the 16/2.8 turned out t be, but I could see them charging between $700-$1000 for it.

For those looking at what other zooms to pair this with this the 10-24 & 50-140 (with the 1.4x teleconverter) would give you a constant f4 from 10-299mm with all three lenses having the exact same filter size. Also, the size and weight for the 16-80 should be about equal to the 10-24 since they use the same filter and a side by side comparison has them at equivalent size.
