I guess the folks interested in this lens will rush to place an order and then hope they get a good copy. I agree it seem a good proposition for a traveller like me to have a one lens solution, but I am lucky to have a good 18-55 and will be reluctant to part with it particularly if the 16-80 is larger, heavier and expensive . Then there is the IQ. Time will tell I guess.

Yup.  Just like the 10-24, 56/1.2, 90/2, X-T1, and X-H1, I plan on pre-ordering the 16-80 at first opportunity.  Hopefully the lens lives up to what I want it to be in my lens line up.

It'll be interesting to see how Fujifilm sees this lens.  Will it be higher quality?  Will it be designed from the ground up as a less expensive lens?  If Fujifilm prices the 16-80 too low (e.g., $400) I might have seconds thoughts pre-ordering it.
