I would like to have a 18-105 zoom but the only one I'm finding is a power zoom.

Is there a down side to the power zoom if I don't need that feature?

Not really a down side, it's easy to get used to. There is a ring that you turn similar to a manual zoom, and it's smoother to operate than the 16-50. If it was available without the PZ I probably would have done that. But if you want the 18-105 focal range you don't really have a choice.

I don't shoot much video, but I can see how the PZ feature can help you to zoom more smoothly for video.
