Nikon 16-85 vs 18-140

Has anyone got experience with BOTH lenses, and can feedback their opinion of them in terms of IQ?

Looking online at a fair few lens tests, it seems that:

16-85 - more consistent IQ edge-to-edge across the zoom range, but slightly less sharp than the 18-140 in the centre once that lens is stopped down a bit. Also sharper than the 18-140 at  max aperture across the zoom range, & one stop down....

18-140 less consistent IQ edge-to-edge, especially at max aperture across the zoom range, unless you stop down at least 2 stops....

Cheers!
