I'm really happy with my 18-135. Putting them at the same or quite close prices makes the choice more difficult. At the time I got mine, there was a substantial difference in price. Depends on one's use/interests. I've found that I often want both wider than 16mm (or 18mm) and longer than 50mm to 70mm or so.

One could make a case for either. I don't "need" both but I also have a dslr kit that includes a 17-50/2.8 (and a range of other lenses, too). For me, the 18-135 is a better single lens fit but even that depends on what I'm doing or where I am, etc.

TBH if the 16-70 had been priced much higher than the 18-135 I’d have probably ordered the latter, as I already have the 10-18 so the wider angle is covered, but the 16-70 range is very appealing.
