I have the D90 and 16-85 as well as the 18-105. I bought the 16-85 for its reach, and I absolutely love it. I keep the 18-105 I originally got with a kit as my back-up travel lens. IMO, the 18-105 is the best value of any lens, and you will have to pixel peep to see much difference in image quality. I would not part with mine at today's prices.

The 16-85 is better built but costs about $250 more than the 18-105. For general use you will not go wrong with either of them. As for the D90 or D5100, I have never used the D5100, but the D90 is a good platform that does just about everything I want it to do.

Good luck with your new gear. You will enjoy whichever combo you choose.
