At least when it comes to their close focusing and psudo macro capabilities which is one of the things the 16/1.4 is most often praised for.

Looking at the official macro chart:

https://dl.fujifilm-x.com/global/products/accessories/mcex/pdf/macro-extension-x-global.pdf

The maximum magnification between the two lenses is only 0.01 and while there is about 50mm difference between the working/minimum focus distance of the two lenses most of that would be overcome by the difference in focal length.
