There were two models of the white 16x lens. The earlier model shipped with the original XL1. A newer model was introduced with the XL1S. The way to tell them apart is to look at the lettering around the edge of the lens where the red band is. The newer one says "16x IS II" and it's worth a little more than the earlier version. I'd say the earlier white 16x auto lens is worth maybe $300 or $400 while the IS II version is worth possibly $500 or $600.

Of course this is assuming that you're referring to the white 16x auto lens, unless you meant the black 16x manual lens...?

Thanks for the responces.
I went ahead and bought it all.
The 16x IS II was used (although perfect condition)
all else was new and I got it for $550.

All in all the Lens seems to be about the same as the 20x. It may get a little more light and less zoom. But for the most part it seems to be very similar.

Having said that, I do believe I have an application that it may be better suited for...
