Not happy with the 18 - 105 lens on D7k, alternatives?

I find the kit (18 - 105) lens quite soft and am considering relacing it, but want to make sure there improvement is worthwhile, am thinking of the nikkor 16 - 85, Sigma EX 24 - 70 (or 17 - 50 OS) or Tamron SP 17 - 50 VC, I know the nikkor 24 70 is great but its very expensive so wanted something a bit cheaper but with decent sharpness and general IQ, any thoughts, thanks
