Have you considered the Sigma 50-100 f/1.8? Fabulous fast aperture for indoor shots and optically superior to your suggestions.

I've thought about the 16-80 but baulked at the cost (at least here in Oz). And that thing has a radar dish for a lens hood! (which I guess is not such an issue indoors as it can be left at home).

The hood from the 24-85 (HB63?) fits and works well on the 16-80 if you want a normal sized hood, albeit it presumably offers less protection.

thanks, I know the hood from the 18-200 also fits.

it was really just an observation. though if the 16-80 is billed as 'an ultimate' walk around lens then having such a big hood makes it a PITA to stow in a normal sized walk around camera bag ...
