What sort of photography are you looking to do - street, architecture, wildlife, etc.? These things will tend to dictate what range of focal length / field of view you need

For general travel photography, I would always try to cover most of the 18 - 200mm range with a couple of lenses, as that will cater for most situations...

The 16-50 and 60-250 will cover pretty much everything you could need

Nice set-up

I bought the 60-250 fairly recently and I've pretty much fallen in love with it I use a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 for the short end, but I know the DA*16-50 is a great bit of kit.

You're all set!
