I have owned both lenses, but replaced the 18-55 with the 16-55 years ago. My own experience (and frankly most others documented here over the last few years) vastly differed from yours, which raises the question as to whether the copy of the 16-55 you had was acceptable, or perhaps had issues. Even setting aside the obvious advantages of constant f/2.8 aperture, I found the end-to-end IQ of the 16-55 to be far more consistent than the 18-55, and, particularly on the long end, hardly "marginal" as you put it.

Hi Folks

OK I give up. But I am definitely not the only one who has owned a mediocre 16-55.

Don't give up! It would take all the fun out of lens arguments!

If we can't argue about lenses on this Fuji camera equipment board, what good to Mankind are we?

And what the Heck would I do during quarantine?

What we need is for a really skilled Sony Troll to come on here and tell us our Fuji gear sucks!

Ha ha yes indeed. All good fun!
