"18-105 vs 16-85"

I'm still using a D60 and will probably have it for at least another year. I have the kit lenses (18-55 and 55-200 VR) as well as the 70-300 VR, 35/1.8 prime, and Tokina 11-16. All DX lenses (I don't see myself migrating to FX in the foreseeable future). I'd like to replace those two kit lenses with a single zoom and I'm wavering between the 18-105 and the 16-85. I've toyed with the 18-105 briefly but have no experience with the 16-85. The 18-105 is about half the cost and a couple of ounces lighter. The lower cost would help me with either of my next two goals: a 105 micro or replacing the D60 with a D7000 (or, 7100 or 400, if they ever appear). Other than being a little beefier, is there any reason to consider the 16-85 over the 18-105?
