Nikon 18-140 vs Nikon 18-105

I have been trawling the web and some DPReview threads looking for views on the pros and cons of the 18-140 vs 18-105 but not with that much satisfaction.

I am particularly asking for thoughts from those who have used both of these lenses.

Shooting mostly with D7500. I have the 18-105 and I find it a convenient walk around lens. I use the 18-105 for junior soccer shots (generally good light).

That bit of extra reach on the 18-140 is alluring but if the performance is not really very different ...

From what I have read online:

not a great difference between optical performance of them ??

but various comments that the 18-140 is better for newer sensors and sharper (those views didn't seem universal however) ??

VR on the 18-140 may better than the VR on the 18-105 ??

Couldn't seem to get clear info on any differences in autofocus speed/performance.

18-140 is a bit bigger (10mm longer) and weighs a bit more (490g vs 420g), and has a metal mount.

thanks in advance.
