Wouldn't be surprised if it cost ~1,000 EUR.

If that is the case I don't see why anyone would want it over the already excellent 16-55 2.8? Sure, it's shorter, but give me the 2.8 over a bit of extra reach any day of the week.

Smaller.

Lighter.

Longer focal length.

Same sort of reasons why there are f2.8 and f4 standard zooms. Not everyone wants to lug around f2.8 zooms.

And don't forget the OIS for those who do not own the larger and heavier X-H1. Personally I don't want to lug around any camera body larger or heavier than the X-T2. I used to lug around a Nikon D7000 with a Tokina 16-50 f2.8 lens attached and I am not going back to that kind of kit again!

Same here, personally I have zero interest in big 16-55mm f2.8, but probably will buy 16-80mm f4 if IQ is good enough. For the reasons mentioned above; smaller size, longer reach, OIS. Should be perfect with my X-T3. Did I mention OIS?
