The 18-250's optics are better than the 18-55's optics.
Not all-round better IME. The 18-250 is sharper at 18 and 55mm, better contrast at the wide end, faster at 55mm, but it has heavier barrel distortion, more tendency to vignette, more likely to flare and show PF.

Well, if the optics of the 18-250 are at the same level as the 18-55, I may consider to buy that lens, too bad its not weather resistant.

I had the zenitar 16/2.8 already on my list. But I was infact looking for something even more extreme. Maybe the tamron 10-24 or the sigma 12-24. Although as I understand, only the sigma is fullframe in that range.
I will have to read up on that range. But yes the zenitar 16mm is probably a good and cheap first step.
