Unrepairable 18-105mm

Long story short, the lens got dropped at the beach and Nikon just wrote me stating, "The lens in not economically repairable." So I now own a new paper weight.

I need a few thoughts on a replacement lens. Of course another 18-105. I have also looked at the Tamron 17-50 and the Sigma 17-50, neither have very good numbers at DxO and neither is probably a very good walk around lens.

I don't want a super zoom. What other mid-range zooms should I look at, before deciding?

Thanks ahead of time.
