I'm agreeing with the previous poster -- the 16-85 is a great lens and paired with the 70-300 it covers just about everything.  These have been my go-to lenses on several Nikon bodies over the last few years.  I took the 16-85 as my only lens to Greece and Turkey last summer and was not disappointed.

However, I have spoken with photographers who really like the 18-105.  The image quality is not that different and you get more on the long end.  The 18-105 is definitely the better value, financially.  You can't go wrong with either of these, the 16-85 or the 18-105.  They will probably autofocus faster on your camera than some of the third party zooms.
