Re: Is the Nikkor 16-85mm overrated?

It's the one lens that I miss after going to FX.  I compared it to my 24-85AFS while I briefly had both and the 16-85 was noticeably better in all regards even though it can be just a tad soft in the far corners.  There is no equivalent FX lens that has the same IQ (no, not even the 24-120/4).
