Is the Nikkor 16-85mm overrated?

Re: Overpriced? Maybe

I agree with Leonard's assessment. Lately, I've seen a number of used 16-85 VR's showing up on Craigslist for $350-400. Mind you, now you can get a used 18-105 VR for under $200, or a used 18-55 VR for under $100.

My 16-85 VR is a great performer. I prefer it over the 17-55 f/2.8 for most of my shooting.

THe $100 sale price helps a lot. Could be a signal Nikon needs the old model off the shelf to make room for something new. Price ends in a few hours?

For the price/ size some may still prefer the 18-105.
