I have the X-S10 and the 16-80mm f4. It's plenty sharp for my needs, but my biggest complaint is the size is just a touch too big to toss in a bag and go. I find myself leaning on the 50mm f2 and 27mm f2.8 instead.

This was my main consideration in choosing the  XF18-55.  It's a perfect size on my X-T20 for "tossing" into my Lowepro TLZ Mini holster and taking off for the day.  In fact, it's so darn convenient that I neglect using my prime lenses, even when I start with the intention of going out with my 35mm lens.

This even extends to travel.  My wife and I will be taking off to somewhere warm over Christmas and all I will take is the X-T20, the XF18-55 and spare batteries/charger.  I know I won't be disappointed
