Overrated? No. Overpriced? Maybe

I got my D300 with a 16-85 and the lens has performed superbly ever since. The sharpness and contrast is excellent while distortion's not a problem. The only downside is that it's slow, but I have primes for those situations.

The 16-85 is generally described as a very high quality lens with a usable zoom range. My experience is consistent with that, so I'd never say the lens was overrated.
