Personally, I did not find the 16-85 to be that much better than the 18-105. I used both lenses. Yes, perhaps marginally, it was better, but the lens is still way overpriced IMHO. I bought a used 17-55 for $800 and I am thrilled with it. Just pin-sharp, contrasty images with beautiful colour. It REALLY sings on my D7K.

I agree with 16-85 being similar to 18-105 in tern of image quality. If I were you, I'd rather save that extra bid of money that you were gonna spend on 16-85 and get a 18-105 with Nikon 35 f/1.8G instead. The combination is great for both portrait and landscape IMO.
