The Nikkor AF-S 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX may have certain shortcomings however according to the reviewer at Photozone, its still a good buy. The lens is called the  "best DX standard zoom lens in Nikon mount to date" and also produces consistent sharp images.

The Nikkor AF-S 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX however suffers from a slow max. aperture and Vignetting is noticeable at 16mm @ f/3.5. While the build quality is  quite good it can’t be compared to professional grade quality.
