The 16-85 VR is also much sharper than the 18-105 and 18-200.

I'm assuming this has been your experience with your particular copies. It's not consistent with testing done by slrgear.com at all:

A little tidbit from slrgear: "The 18-105mm is very sharp wide open at all focal lengths, with just slight traces of corner softness; typically, there is a large region of central sharpness (the 'sweet spot') at 1 blur unit, and corners soften very slightly to 2-2.5 blur units."
