Given that my budget allows me to buy a 7000 with 16-85mm lens or a 7100 with a kit 18-105 lens, which is the better option? Do i go for the extra features of the camera, or of the lens. Movie features are of no consequence to me. Advice greatly appreciated.

It's the lens that matters more than the body. The 16-85 is a really good lens & worth the money imo.
The 2mm gain on wide could be more useful than the 20mm loss on reach, depending on what your main interests are of course.

If you later want a good, relatively cheap zoom, the 70-300mm is a very good choice. & there's also the 35mm & 50mm primes if you needed.

Even though the new D7100 has just been released, the D7000 is still an excellent camera, that you really won't be disappointed with. Bargain price too atm.

I agree with oldCarlos, really what will give you the difference in image quality is the lens, not so much the camera itself.

Though I wonder, based on the lenses you mentioned, what are you planning to use the camera for?

Gear: Canon SX20 IS, Canon Rebel T3i, Canon EF-S 18-55mm, Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Wishlist: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L

Go for 7100 body with 18-105 lens, Instead of 1.5, you can get 2x magnification at 15 MP in 7100, which is suitable for bird photography.
