If you want the convenience of a zoom it is a much better lens than any of your primes.

If you are going to compare the corners to your prime lenses you will be dissapointed (at least I hope you will because otherwise your primes are poor).

The 16~85 offers some obvious advantages to your prime lenses and for that you accept it's compromises. Overall it's a very good lens.
