And the 200/2 (2.6kg) or the 8-16 (800 grams) are already snow of last winter? Well, why not - they will arrive when the next snow is coming down here in EU.
The 16-80f4 might be good if it is (a) light and (b) very good optically of course given the 18-55 I'm not sure where the 16-80 fits; I mean it is a little wider and a little longer but no where close to the 12-100 zukio.
I'm no fan of "them standardzooms", but that's meant for the 18-55/2.8-4.

Although it's considered to be a great kit lens, it's too short and too long FL. Giving it 2 mm more wide makes a real difference and giving it 25 mm more tele, but not giving up speed at the tele side could well make a new real standard zoom. The 16-50/2.8 is nothing to write home about except it's price. So, if that's a serious zoom, we're talking again. And if it's coming also with real aperture ring and a C-position instead of the 18-55's black ring with no numbers on it - but can't be dialed by the front dial - all the better.
Well, more on all this here:

The 8-16mm and 200mm seem to be ready for immanent release.

... immanent sounds good. Knowing Fuji, it will become autumn or winter... Big Grin

Too mini.
16-80f4 should sell very well, already canon 15-85 and Nikon 16-85 were quite successful
Fuji is not in the habit of selling very well, in general...
