Exactly!

I tried it for vlogging a bit yesterday, really transforms the camera for that purpose. Even with enhanced digital IS the lens is still so wide its suits the job fine.

And it's not only the weight but also the fact that the distance to the subject is determined from the front of the lens. So the 16mm being so small simply gives ones arm more reach.

Arm more reach?  You mean while holding the camera at arms length taking video of your face?

I didn't understand how a shorter lens facing a flower would have more reach for your arm to the flower or any other subject.
