After careful consideration, and with all the options suggested - I think I’m going to go with the Sony DT 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 SAM lens. it seems to cover the bases for range while having very good IQ. Reviews are quite favorable, and excellent copies can be found at great prices.

I'm sure that is a good choice for your needs. The only thing I would question is that there is quite a bit of difference between 18mm and 16mm at the short end. When traveling, you might take the 18-135mm and the 16-50mm. Then, if you are going to be indoors a lot on a certain day, take the 16-50mm.

Hmmm... Maybe the Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 might be the better single lens option, as indoor shooting would likely be about 30-40% for me I'm guessing, and the extra wide would also help with landscape.
