Hi Marcos,

Thanks for your detailed reply, I appreciate it. I still haven't quite made up my mind about this.

- My GAS is solutely screaming for the 16-55/2.8 for its optical quality paired with the X-T4 IBIS. I want it, badly.

- My arms and back are telling me to stop this silly nonsense and get the 18-55/2.8-4. My smallish photo backpack concurs. Also will I really bring this anvil of a lens along for a family trip? If I ask anyone to take a group photo of us, they won't be able to lift the camera. Oh dear.

- My brain is distracted by the 16-80 which is more versatile than the 18-55, and of probably mostly similar optical quality. That focus wobble though...

- My creativity is saying screw those lenses and think about all the nice M42 vintage stuff I have in my drawer already.

- My wallet is not saying much. I think it's dead.
