There is absolutely nothing wrong with the 18-105 Kit lens-it offers a lot of bang for the buck, and has good IQ, especially for the price range.

However, I just bought a 16-85 and absolutely love it.  My advice is if you intend to shop for a deal for the 16-85, then you probably shouldn't bother with the 18-105.

My current 'go everywhere duo' are the 16-85 and the 70-300.  Both are commonly available used or refurbished.
