Using Sony Nex 5r and 5t together

Quick question, I have a Sony Nex 5r and I'm very happy with the footage it provides in certain instances. I kind of want to get another one to use alongside it, but only if I can get it cheap. I found a used 5t but the thing is that the lens is slightly different. The 5r has a 3.5-5.6/18-55 lens, but the 5t has a 3.5-5.6/16-50 lens. Would anyone notice any difference if I used these two cameras to film something and cut between the two different angles?

P.S. I'm really hot for that A7s, but my budget is less hot for it right now

The 5T and 5R are the same internally. If using different lenses really bothers you a SEL1855 can be purchased used for around $100.

I'm not sure it would bother me, I'm just a total noob when it comes to lenses so I can't tell if they would make a notable difference when used side by side.
