I have the D5100 and I like the 16-85mm VR as a walk-around setup that gives very good quality and pretty much covers the focal lengths you might want.  But when wandering around I prefer to carry a camera in my hand rather that having it on a neck or shoulder strap, and this combination can get heavy after awhile.  That's where a good quality prime comes in, plus you typically get a brighter lens out of the deal as well which makes the lens versatile in another way.  There is always the frightening prospect of actually changing lenses in the field as an alternative to a zoom.
