I am looking at either the 16-80 and the 18-135 as a possible one lens solution for travel and casual photography. In your opinion, which one of these lenses is preferable for cityscapes, streets and non-critical landscape style shooting? I am minded to go with the 18-135 due to its longer reach and larger aperture at the wide end. However, I wonder how the 16-80 compares? which is your preference as a possible one lens travel solution and why?

Thanks for your comments

I'm sony user with 18-135 lens, so I will comment only generally: I sometimes miss the wider 16mm and never used f3.5 on wider end, so my vote was 16-80, which seems to be as very good compromise of focal range and apperture for travel lens.
