16-85mm v 18-105mm lens

This may have been asked before but I'm struggling trying to understand why the 16-85mm lens is so much more expensive than the 18-105mm
I realise it has a metal mount and is 2mm wider but really?
The 18-105mm is the kit lens for the D7000 so it can't be that bad!

I have the 18-105mm lens and am just curious to know if the 16-85mm lens is really twice as good as the price implies.
Can anybody enlighten me?
