    Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS maybe the alternative. I am happy with my Nikon 18-200 VR

    Tamron also has an 18-200 but without stabilizer http://www.tamron.com/lenses/prod/18200_diII.asp. Heard that tamron also just came up with a 18-250 too... recently unveiled as photokina (pls correct me if i got my info wrong).

    But once you go beyond 200mm, some form of image stabilization would be most helpful, unless you plan on shooting with a tripod at the tele range.

    trust me on this

    18-200VR is very useful to have VR

    18mm 1/2sec taken at night are mostly keepers

    200mm 1/30sec are mostly keepers

    200mm 1/10sec are 50% keepers

    hehehe

    happy with VR

    Keepers = shots you can keep, ie. not blurred/out of focus etc

    Adding on... keepers are not those that have only one place they belong - ie the trash bin...
