Nikon 18-105mm kit worth it? Or is it better to go body only?

Re: Have a look at this review

18-105: good lens; not Nikon's best, but a good place to start.  Save the extra money you could spend on the 16-85 (not really a better lens) and use it towards your next lens purchase.  You will be buying more lenses!

D90 better than D5100 IMHO.  Easier access to features and settings.  D5100 requires heavy use of menu system (= less convenient).  My wife shot with the D90 and 18-105 combo for quite a while and did very well with it - excellent for learning and capable of producing nice images.
