I just ordered the D7000 with three lenses, one of them was the Nikon AF 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6 DX G AF-S ED. Now I found that they sell a package "D7000 with 16-85mm, AFS G VR" for $100 less. I can undo my order before midnight, is it the same lens? (If so I'll reorder with the package instead of the camera and lens separately.) The full name does say both AF and AF-S, but no AFS.. Sorry if this is a newbie question..
There is only one such lens and so, yes, they are the same.
The full name is the Nikkor AF-S DX 16-85mm F/3.5-5.6G ED VR but it seems one of your vendors is omitting parts of the name. Unfortunately this is common practice and makes it extremely confusing since many lenses were built with multiple variations over the years (with and without VR, with an without focus-motor, etc).
When a lens comes bundled with the camera there is usually small discount and you can mostly count on the fact that the bundled lens is as current as the camera itself, although sometimes a newer model may supersede it.
You might have a look at the question What do all those cryptic number and letter codes in a lens name mean? for some more information about what the different acronyms means.
I'm not too familiar with Nikon (Nikkor), but it does look like Nikon only have one 16-85 lens. And by buying a camera + lens as a package, you would normally get a discount. My guess is that this is the same lens.
