If you are looking for a all-rounder and dosent like to change/buy another lens. Then maybe the 18-200. Cant comment on IQ.
btw.. Head down to the stores and test them out? Thats the best solution.

I would prefer the 16-85VR over the 18-200VR, coz I've been more impressed with the optical quality of the 16-85VR.
Furthermore I have never really favoured >85mm on an APS-C camera (which the D7000 is).

My favourite combo is still a UWA, a fast normal prime (eg. 35/1.8DX) and a cheap tele-zoom (eg. 55-200VR) :)
but hey, that's just me ;)

I find it fast, but didnt do any scientific testing :)
UWA = ultra wide angle
To me, <18mm for APS-C is considered UWA

I haf the 16-85 and it focuses at a decent speed, but certainly not fast as compared to other cheaper AF-S lenses like 35 f/1.8G DX and 50 f/1.8G. It will also hunt sometimes in low light indoor situations especially at 85mm considering that its max aperture is only f/5.6.

Thanks for all the suggestion! It benefit me a lot. My need is traveling n some indoor ambient light shooting so 16-85 should be ok right?

One more question, if I using external flash in ambient indoor, can I get the pic with natural bright in faces n ambient color for background?

I saw some ppl taking with flash the background us dark the face is bright. @_@

It's certainly possible :)
Depends how dark the background is, of course.
Getting a Nikon flash with the 'TTL-BL' (TTL Balanced Lighting) feature helps a lot :)
Essentially the exposure needs to be sufficient to at least capture some of the ambient lighting, and the flash power is reduced just enough for fill.
