3. Which 1 is faster at focusing and zooming?
4. Which 1 has better resell value (2nd hand value)?
5. Which 1 is a better choice for amateur who own D70s? Is it wise to let go 17-70mm and take 18-200mm to start photography life?
6. Which 1 is more valuable for money?
7. Which 1 provides more versatility for lens upgrade in future?
8. And lastly, which 1 is more professional?

Wooo.. I can give you a very inside view of the glasses to buy and what to buy.... personal tuition... $100/ hr, how's that? Gaurantee to make you buy only what you need and after that never need to buy again. :devil:

1. 18-200VR http://www.nikon.com.sg/compareproductitems.php?c[]=825-ff2662b928&c[]=95-c26da0b380

2. 18-200, overall sharper at 18mm, corners less aberration

3. about the same, 18-70 faster because shorter zoom range. 18-200 zoom ring a bit heavier because of the longer extension length.

4. In terms of how much money you lose or percentage of the new price?

5. depends on what you want to use it for. 18-200 is a very versatile lens for almost everything.

6. again depends on your definition. if you have spent another $2k on a trip overseas and you just want to bring 1 lens for travelling light, the 18-200 is already worth more than the price.

7. Depends on what you mean by upgrade. With either lens, buying another 17-55 would be considered an upgrade to me. So I guess the answer is it does not really matter in this case.

8. Professional? As long as you make money with it, it automatically become professional. It really depends on you.

My advice, buy D70s body only, don't get the kit. Then buy the 18-200VR. The 18-70 does not have much resale value only about $250.
