Either way, these are just my thoughts and observations. I'll be returning the 16-55 and then sending the 16-80 to Fuji for further calibration.

Why should you do that? They will probably check it and send it back right away and untouched because "falls within specifications" or words like that.

John, because I did the same with my 100-400 that I purchased earlier this year - the difference was incredible.

Well, that's interesting! Did you send it because it was a really bad copy (e.g. decentered or tilted = clearly oneven sharpness over the frame) or just because to get the best possible calibration? I didn't know they do that.
