From the wide angle 24mm to a standard mid-range telephoto up to 76mm, this compact zoom lens empowers you with a wide range of focal lengths. While it is ideal for landscapes and travel photography, its versatile performance makes it a great choice for shooting special occasions indoors and outdoors. Superb optical performance is assured by the all-glass 10 group / 12 element lens configuration includes 3 aspherical lenses and 1 ED lens. The reduced weight of the focusing lens combined with a high-precision stepping motor ensure high-speed autofocusing. So those once-in-a-lifetime shots won't escape your camera. Also optical image stabilization effectively minimizes blur when shooting dark scenes or zooming in on the action. When shooting movies, the lens keeps moving subjects in crisp focus, while image stablization keeps blur to a minimum even when shooting scenes while walking.

I owned the Fujifilm XF 14mm briefly, so that is all I have to compare this XC lens to. The XF 14mm lens is wider, sharper, and all metal. On the downside, the 14mm is heavier, limited to one focal length, and at least 3x the cost at $899. Worst of all, the 14mm has an aperture ring that is so loose that, in my opinion, it becomes a negative rather than a positive.
I actually prefer the absence of an aperture ring on the XC 16-50. The 14mm was difficult to hold without moving the aperture accidentally. And I think the XC-16-50 has a very clean, no-nonsense look about it without the aperture ring. (you just use your right thumb to dial in whatever aperture you want; it works fine. Set the shutter dial to "A" and it goes into aperture priority mode. Shutter priority is activated by using the thumb dial to set the aperture all the way past f22... It will then begin automatically selecting aperture based on whatever shutter speed your select. Leaving the aperture in its auto position, and simultaneously setting the shutter speed dial to "A" puts the camera in Program mode, i.e. automatic mode.)
I don't find the XC 16-50 to be cheap looking or feeling at all. Yes, it is plastic except for the glass, but it still has a nice heft to it that I find actually balances better with the X-E1 than the 14mm did. It is plastic, but it looks and feels nice, and from any distance it is difficult to tell whether it is metal or plastic. The plastic mount is not something I am enthusiastic about, but it seems to work fine.
I know the general consensus is that the XF 18-55 is a better lens, but 18mm (27mm equivalent)is not wide enough for me. The 16mm (24mm equivalent)of the XC 16-50 makes it a satisfactory general purpose lens for me. When the 10-24mm comes out, I'll take a look at that, or if I could get a decent price on a 14mm I wouldn't mind having one again, but not at full price. Fuji should either knock $200 off the price for that defective loose aperture ring of the 14mm, or fix it if they want to charge a premium price for the lens.
I will update this review when I do more shooting with the XC 16-50.
all of these which I have lost since purchasing and accidentally scratched the lens >.< oops.
However the seller was great! absolutely superb!
