Looking to get an XT5, 16-80 or 18-120?

Getting back into fuji and not sure which kit lens I should start with. Should I go with the 16-80 or the 18-120. I like the apeture ring on my lens, but the range of the 18-120 makes a lot of sense, and I also plan on getting the fujinon primes so I'm not concerned about the size. Any owners of both lenses want to chime in? Thanks!
I have tried both briefly, I do not own either. Just tried them out at the Fujifilm local office. I prefer the 16-80 image quality over the 18-120. The longer the zoom range, the lower the image quality will be, and I think the 16-80 has a really good balance of both convenience and quality.
