18-105 vs 16-85

Still don't understand why I get the sharpest images (even wide open) with the 18-105 which came with my D7000 than the 16-85 which I purchased because it was rated higher in construction (true) but also slightly higher in optical quality. I can only figure that unit to unit variation accounts for the results I get. I guess that I was lucky to get a super 18-105 unit. Anyone know if the plastic mount results in poorer dust resistance?
