I’m excited about this lens. I’m just not interested in the 16-55 2.8, it’s huge, no IS and 2.8 is still not fast enough for the lower light work I do. The excellent primes I have cover those areas.

I certainly understand your argument, but I must say: 16-55 + X-H1 is a wonderful combination. It's so easy to get tack sharp images that it comes as a shock when one isn't crystal clear.  It's a boring combo, for sure. The 16-55 has been around for a while, and nobody views the X-H1 as the "sexy" Fuji camera, but man do they sing when paired together.

That said, I'd love to have the extra 55-80 range for a travel lens, as I'm still cropping my 16-55 a bit on the long end. The question is whether Fuji can deliver a lens that is sharper than the 18-135, which I've always found wanting.
