18-105mm vs 18-55mm?

As a walk around is the 105 significantly better?  For the intended use as a general purpose lens, besides range, is the 105 that much better? I'm having a hard time with deciding for the A6000.

The 16-70 is IMO overpriced, the 18-105 is quite big, and  the 18-55 and 16-50 are just OK IQ wise.  To top it off the Fuji X-E1, with the 18-55mm is about the same price as the 18-105mm.  Not that the X-E1 is in league with A6000, but the lens is stellar by all accounts.  Very frustrating.
