It was my favorite DX lens.

The 16-85 VR was my favorite DX lens... great range, damn sharp, convenient, light - a perfect travel companion. I was really happy with it on 12 and 16 MP sensors. I'm not sure how it'd fare on the new 24 MP stuff. I really loved the 16mm wide-angle... it was considerably wider than the 18-XX zooms. 24 is the new 28 - in my opinion, the 17-55 or 16-85 replacement must be 16 on the wide end.

In short, it's the one lens that I miss since I've moved to FX.

Some samples:

Cheers,

Mike
