Re: Get the 16-80?!

Dude, you’ve answered your own question.
in the beginning you say you want a camera for “hiking, landscapes and outdoors.” So you need something on the the lighter side, and weather and dust resistance is a good thing for outdoors too. heavy equipment sucks for hiking and holding for long periods of time

then you quibble about how the 16-55 is nice indoors, because of the extra stop. But this isn’t why you want the lens! You have primes for those.

the 16-55 ain’t light or weather resistant

The XF 16-55mm f/2.8 is indeed weather resistant (WR).  It is the older and much smaller XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 that is not weather sealed.

get the 16-80. Longer reach is nice outside too. At least that’s what it sounds like you really want. Be happy with it, I’m sure it’s fine!
