Why not get the 18-5 and another body - still probably less money than the 16 - 70. I have a 5N and a 6. I put the 16-5 or 18-55 on one body (I have both) and the 55-210 on the other when I travel. That is what I did on a recent trip to Yosemite. They easily fit in a single bag and at times, although I may have looked a bit silly, were both around my neck. That way I did not have to change lens in a dusty environment and also had a backup camera.

With the falling price of both the 6 and 7 resulting from the introduction of the A6000, you would have an opportunity to solve your problem in an economical way.

That's something I have been considering as well.  I'm keeping the second body idea  in the back of my mind regardless of what other lens I may ultimately decide to get.
