Hi Michael,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Even the Nikkor kit lenses are optically excellent.
As you have noted, the 18-105mm having a wider range is a little more convienient than the 18-55mm and 55-200mm combo since you might not have to switch leses as often. If you want to have your cake an eat it too, the 18-200mm is another option though significantly more expensive and not quite as good optically as the others you list.

Neither the 18-55mm or the 55-200mm are very large or heavy so carrying a second lens should't be much of a problem. I would get the two lens kit. If you can, consider the 55-300mm instead of the 55-200mm. It is only a little more expensive and provides significantly more range.

BTW:

We always encourage our members to fill in their real first and last names and have made that issue a part of our Terms of Use.

The intent is to foster a community of "real people" instead of mysterious web-personalities with anonymous screen names.

Doing this helps to establish and maintain a safe, civil and friendly environment.

Thanks in advance.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
