16-85 DX VR on a D610

Is anyone using this combination and how does it go for travel?

I am pretty keen on getting the d610 to replace my d300S, but not sure of which lens i want for general use. So i am contemplating running with the 16-85 for a while.
I have a 70-300 FX VR and also the 105 which are both good.

From what i understand the d610 will operate in crop mode and be 10M pixel

And will the field of view be the same as the 300 when fitted to the 610?  I assume the viewfinder will just offer a smaller active area?

Also appreciate thoughts on my best option for a general travel lens to complement what i have- i would like VR so looking at all (new) options ( nikon sigma tokina etc. )

I have a 35 1.8 DX but rarely use it so will look at primes later.

If these questions sound like neewbies thats correct because I've rarely handled a FF and they were all canons.
