The 18-55 won't buy you much at all over the 16-50, unless the power zoom mechanism is really driving you bananas.

The 16-70, OTOH, will give you noticeably better contrast and colors, and is definitely the way to go if your budget allows.

For a high-quality fast tele, the just-released 70-200 should be awesome, although it's even more spendy. That's a full frame lens, but an APS-C version wouldn't be all that much smaller for that range and focal length anyway.

I just checked this....$1,500...wow

Which is what you should expect to pay for such lens: Constant f/4, 105-300mm equiv (on APSc), dual mode optical stabilization, fit and finish of a G lens.
