For me IQ will be the deciding factor between getting the 16-80 or the 18-135. Weight should be less than a 3oz difference based on the weight of the 10-24 and price wise they should be fairly close, again based on the 10-24. The 18-135 gets mixed reviews though so if the 16-80 is much better it's a no brainer to pick it up, however if IQ is about the same between the two then I'd have to go with the longer reach of the 18-135.

that's a hotly debated question.

I've had 18-135 and 15-85 on crop bodies and preferred the range of the latter. I guess some prefer the former.

from ~16-18 is a 9 degree difference wider though, while 80-135mm is an ~8 degree difference. really about a wash, do you want that much wider, or that much longer. I find it's easier to crop at that point, but impossible to go wider with such a zoom... IF the 16-80 is sharp at the long end, is the question.
