I have the same issue of weight/quality versus output and a need to stay with Nikon, despite the pull of jumping to Fuji.

2 years ago I travelled to Hong Kong, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore. My main lens was a 24-120 - and almost everything past 100mm was unusable... soft as butter in the corners. This year I'm doing HK to Japan and I have spent months on honing my travel kit and have ended up with the following:

18-35 G - lightweight, wide, tack sharp - the ideal street lens.

Why is the 18-35 a better choice than the much wider 16-35?

The 18-35 is cheaper, smaller, lighter than the 16-35 - and it outperforms it too. Only issue is build quality - the 18-35 is plastic, but for half the price and half the weight I'm converted...
