18-55mm + 55-200mm or 18-105mm?

I'm thinking about selling my 18-55mm and 55-200mm and getting a 18-105mm (maybe used); I think I can do all this with no out of pocket cost. On the pro side, it would be good that I won't have to keep changing between the two lenses (I usually shoot between 18-85mm), but on the con side, I think the combo has better optics and of course a longer total range than the 18-105mm.

Could you please provide some insight into whether this is a good move or not? I can't afford to buy the 18-200mm right but that would probably be the best option.

Thanks!
