At risk of stating the obvious Peter - it's a lot bigger and heavier to carry around than the X-T10 + 18-55 combo that I had before it. However still far more portable than my D800 plus any single lens, so it still fulfils my need for a relatively portable solution. I sold my vastly under-used Fuji14mm at the same time as I acquired the 16-55mm however as I couldn't justify keeping it for another 2mm. I think/hope where the 16-55mm will come into its own though will be when I'm using it at f/2.8 - either for astro or just low-light indoors. I've already gone into my Fuji journey on this forum so I won't go into ti all again but for me and my style of photography, and for the job I need this combo to do, it seems perfect so far.
