Nikon 16-85 VR

Just been reading on the dpreview forums about the possibility of this new lens from Nikon. See here:

Rumoured to be f3.5-5.6, which is slightly disappointing, but not unexpected given that Nikon's lens line up seems to be heading into two distinct camps (slow consumer lenses with VR with a big price gap to faster pro glass generally without VR (at the moment)).

If it is real, then it might be nice walkaround lens, and I would certainly consider it even though I have the 18-200VR; the extra little bit at the wide end is nice, and it may be lighter and lightly smaller which would definitely be nice!

I don't see why there shouldn't an update to the 18-135 as well (to 16-135 VR).
