Greetings, everyone. I hope to be able to rent a Nikkor 16-85 from a local store to try it out myself but would appreciate hearing from any of you who have had experience with it. Shun indicated that he's heard some good things about it, but I'm not finding as much useful info about it on the Web as I thought I would. Primary use would be for landscapes and other wide to short tele work. I have a D200 along with a Nikkor 12-24 and 18-200; I'm strongly considering splitting out the 18-200 into the 16-85 (or alternative) and a 70-300. I love the 70-200, but it's probably just too big, heavy and expensive for me to justify. For what it's worth, I'm looking at replacing the D200 soon, likely with the D7000 once I start hearing from the users in this forum. It only seems to make sense to go with a 16-85 if it is a definite step up from the 18-200 in the comparable focal range. If you have opinions on that, fire away. Thanks.
