My bad, got confused by the Canon 15-85 (premium lens) and 16-85 (not so much). So then, all premium lenses.

Yes, you seem confused. The two lenses are very similar, so if the Canon 15-85 is a premium lens than so is the Nikon 16-85. They are about equal in resolution, the Nikon has considerably less CA and has less distortion, the Canon has less vignetting at 15mm than the Nikon at 16. The Nikon is weather sealed. Is the Canon that as well?

Perhaps you have confused the Nikon 16-85 with the 18-55?
