Notes: The 16-50mm is odd in that it doesn't have a traditional aperture ring. It has a switch on the body to move between Aperture automated by the camera (essentially Program and Shutter-priority in the old-style controls with two dials with an A on them), and your controlling it with the ring. But the ring isn't click stopped, it's a continuous fly-by-wire aperture system, not a mechanically linked one (this, by the way, seems to indicate that Fujifilm might be tinkering with video products in the XF mount; the current cameras aren't good enough at video to require an infinite aperture size ability).
