From the manufacturer
The weather-resistant zoom lens XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR is a flagship "XF standard zoom lens" with a focal length equivalent to 24mm* to 84mm*, and a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the range. The advanced optical design controls various forms of aberration to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.
Feature Flagship Standard Zoom
Optically designed to draw out the maximum image quality
In order to achieve the best-in-class image quality, the fast standard zoom lens with a constant aperture of F2.8 consists of 17 elements in 12 groups. This includes three aspherical lens elements to control spherical aberration and distortion, and three ED glass lens elements to reduce lateral chromatic aberration (wide-angle) and axial chromatic aberration (telephoto), thereby achieving edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.
Nine rounded aperture blades create a smooth, circular bokeh. The suppression of spherical aberration to the ultimate extent contributes to produce beautiful bokeh at both the front and back.
Nano-GI (Gradient Index) Coating Technology
Applying Fujifilm's unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to the entire area of the lens surface ensures ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear images. Also, using the newly developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology, which alters the refractive index between glass and air, ghosting and flare are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.
High-speed, quiet auto focus thanks to the Linear Motor
By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Twin Linear Motor, high-speed, quiet AF is possible. The fastest AF speed of 0.06 seconds brings comfort to your photo-shoot when by combining this lens with an X Series camera body* offering Phase Detection AF. Combined with the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet locations.
Weather resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation
By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the FUJIFILM X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.

I still have my full frame Nikon system that I do not plan on leaving anytime soon. My Nikon is my workhorse for my "bread and butter" events. There is still something special to me in using a full frame DSLR that I will still fall back to using. While I long to have the Nikon 24-70mm lens, I could no justify the price as well as the weight of the lens.
I started my research and reading for the next wide/zoom lens. Along the way, I added the Fujinon 27mm pancake lens as well as the 35mm lens. These two primes did a remarkable job in low light. Carrying this Fuji system was still lighter than carrying my Nikon system. Switching between zoom and prime lens did not bother me as I felt there's a creative and fun factor with this system. Still, a good walk around and all purpose lens was waiting to be found.
For months, I kept my eye on the 16-55mm red badge lens. It's an equivalent to the full frame ~24-70mm lens. I read a lot of reviews and looked at the beautiful pictures this lens was producing. My gut feeling was telling me to get this lens. I waited for a sale and finally made a purchase. I had no buyer's remorse.
Oh my! What a beautiful lens! In my hands, was a solid piece of beautiful glass. It's slightly heavier than my 18-135mm lens and a bit longer and a bit wider. I immediately swapped lens and started my wonderful relationship/journey with my new lens.
My first adventure was to my local garden center. I always take a photo trip there to test out new lenses. The first thing I noticed was how quick this lens is. No focus hunting at all.
My second photo adventure was to an annual trade show. Now, we all know how crazy the lighting can be at an event like this. My Nikon system would usually handle this quite well. I have to say that my Fuji system did a better job, especially with this lens.
This lens is sharp!
At first, I wasn't too sure how much I would miss using my 18-135mm lens as it's a great all-purpose walk-around-lens. I did not miss it when I went to the trade show. I did not miss it when I captured/shot other events.
I briefly mentioned the size and weight in comparison to my 18-135mm lens. I do not notice the extra weight and extra length. I'm using my lens without a grip. It's that comfortable in my hands.
Have I mentioned it's a joy to use? Right now, this lens is permanently attached to my X-T1. A winning combination. Have I found my "bread and butter" lens? I sure did!
** February 2016 **
For the first time, I went on vacation without my Nikon system. Instead I took my Fujifilm X-T1 and this wonderful lens. Spent two weeks on a cruise ship and was able to capture some incredible pictures of our adventure. This camera/lens combination did not hesitate in low-light situations. I was able to take pictures of a production show inside a dark theater. This is a great combination for my needs. Also, enjoyed traveling with a lighter backpack. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Nikon system. For this trip it was about letting go for two weeks and see what my Fuji could do. It did remarkably well.
I will be back to add additional thoughts/comments/usage.
And the 2.8? It's amazing. I'm glad I invested in this instead of trying to be thrifty and going for the 18-55. I hear that's a good lens, but I often like to shoot wide open and indoors, and the indoor shots with this lens are really great. Very happy customer here.
One really minor nitpick is that when you use the pop-up style flash that came with the X-T1, the lens hood casts a shadow at the bottom of the frame, especially when zoomed out to 16mm. Common problem with longer lenses, but easily remedied by temporarily removing the lens hood; this solves the problem.
For the performance that this lens it gives, it's well worth the price! If anything ever happened to this lens, would I get another one? Yeah, you betcha!
