I often start my FS152 session with the 2.6X GPC installed with 24mm Pans or Brandons at 132X, and work my way to shorter fl's according to what the atmosphere will tolerate.

And what exactly is the point of a 16mm ZAOII or any other ortho?
Anything that will fit in the fov and would benefit from the reduced scatter and increased contrast. I use the 16, 25 and 34's more than the 4 and 6. Great deep sky eyepieces.

IF your using the 16 mm in binos, I think that makes sense.
Well these are being sold as bino pairs with a binoviewer, and this is the binoviewer forum.
For monovision I'd still prefer the 16mm + a 2.5X Powermate to the 6mm ZAO-II, I just have a very low tolerance for short eye relief.

I understand that they are being sold as bino pairs Johnny, but if you use the 6 mm and 4 mm with a 1.7 GPC you get 3.5 mm and 2.4 mm. I wonder how often you could use the 6 mm at 3.5 mm and the 4 mm at 2.4 mm with the GPC. You would need really good seeing for sure.
One could use a 1.25x GPC.
