The dilemma is if you're after weather-sealed lenses of excellent optical quality. The WR kit lenses are not up for some of the tasks that the DA* lenses can do well in. There are no alternatives to the DA* lenses in this regard. Optically, however, the Tamron 17-50 + 70-200 or Sigma 18-50/2.8 + 70-200 are non-WR alternatives that are worth considering. I also have the Tamron 28-75 + 70-200 and am also pleased with this combination. Not WR but I don't hesitate to use them in light rain if required.

I own most of the limited series lenses but always wanted the 16-50
Skip the 16-50, it would be a disappointment, especially after the Limiteds. It's just an overpriced mediocre lens. WR is overhyped imho.
