how dare you to rate a Fuji lens only avarage?
You should have known that could only be a defective lens which has sent you a disappointed Fuji customer.
Fuji lenses are always superior......That said, at least the German Fuji Forum and is upset about your XF16-55 test.
I appreciate your work and am pleased that there is such an independent test site, keep it up.

With the new Fuji X-T4, is the 16-55mm f2.8 lens worth 18-55mm f2.8-4 for amateur street photography?

The 16-55mm is a bit too expensive compared to what the 18-55mm is already capable of.
I'd vote for the 18-55mm as the most reasonable choice - also because it has an OIS.

It is average for the price.
Standard zoom lenses are a bit boring in general but useful. Now most people don't really need the F2. 8 unless they are into wedding photography or newsreporting. Carrying extra weight for average bokeh at 55mm F2.8 humans are amazing creatures.
The 18-55 is a more reasonable option indeed.
