I haven’t used the 15-45 but I own the 16-50 which came with my xt20 and it is a great lens. Takes beautiful pictures. I bought a 18-55mm because I wanted a Aperture ring like my primes I use the most but after comparing those two lenses I am going to sell the 18-55 and keep the 16-50 because it just feels better on the camera. Really hard to tell the difference in picture quality. Don’t think you would be disappointed in the 16-50.
Going by the quality of it and the xc50-230 which I have as well I am sure the 15-45 is probably great as well so you should pick the one that’s focal lengths work best for you.
