Thinking about buying the Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G as a walkabout lens for my Nikon D7000. Whats are everyones thoughts?

There's a review of it on the 7000 at Photozone. I've got one that I use on a D70 and a Fuji S5 and I'm pretty happy with it.
Love my Nikon 16-85, cracking lens, quite sharp for a non pro lens, virtually silent focusing.
The VRII really helps loads when the shutter speed drops right down.
My sigma 10-20 was on my camera 95% until I got the 16-85 and now its the Nikon that's on my camera 95% of the time.
I can't afford pro lenses and this is the next best thing for the price and I love it.
Just traded in a Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 for this one; I have been waiting 2 years for the oft-rumored 16-60 f/2.8-4.0 that is apparently vaporware, and the 16-85 has been universally acclaimed. Yes it's a sharp lens, but shooting the same scenes I recently shot with the Sigma I am having difficulty seeing any difference in sharpness, colour rendition or distortion. As I see it, I have traded the Sigma for a bit more focal length range and perhaps better construction, and given up some cash and 2/3 f-stop for it. The VRII is of no use for sports or action photos. Remains to be seen if my transaction was beneficial or not.
It's a corker !!!!.....buy it !!
