    OK just to complicate things further.... go for the D40 (I have a D60 but it's more money). Just buy the body plus 1 lens, which is the 18-200 mm DX VR, this will do the job of the 2 lenses you have already mentioned (18-55 & 70-200) without having to swap over lenses or carry the second lens about. Have a look on amazon for the lens there are lots of customer reviews there which makes reasurring reading. Yes make sure which ever lens you get is the Vibration reduction (VR), you can even get away without a tripod insome instances where you would normally need one.

    Yup to what has been said about the VR lenses. Especially helpful when in low light situations, needing a wider apeture. DD has the D60 kit with both the 18 - 55 and the 55 - 200 VR lenses. IMO that is the way to go in order to get a faster lens. 18 - 200 may have too many elements causing them to need more light (higher fstop numbers) Keith and others may clear this up if I am mistaken. A fairly fast (low f lens) with 18 - 200 capabilities would be VERY pricey.

    Pretty much although the 18-200 is a hidden gem for Nikon DX cameras like the D40/D60! In fact it has a wider aperture at the wide end than the 55-200 does! It really is a stunningly good walk around, keep on all the time, lens

    yeah it's a bit of a special one. It's rare that you see a lens that covers so much range and is still pretty sharp, fast and generally good!

    The good part is that it can save you buying two or three other lenses over the range, the bad part is that it's not cheap to buy
