Hi all,
Need your help in finding the mid range zoom (if I am using the term right)?
So here is what I have;
D50 + 18-55 mm kit lens. I really like this lens but here is the issue;

1. I don't want to keep on switching lenses all the time and need an all rounder that can give me some abilities for zooming. Mostly for nature and portraits on vacations. I am not looking for deep field action/sports photography.

2. Because I am looking for an allrounder, so size does matter. Small lens will be very preferable.

3. Some options are Nikon 18-200mm (great package, but availability issues, expensive and mixed reviews), Nikon 18-135 (smaller package, costs around $400, and need your opinion what your thoughts are about this) and I think there is also a Sigma 18-125 but I didn't get a chance to read the reviews. These are not all the choices and I know that there are lots other lenses out there and I would really really appreciate of I can get some feedback to pick one.

4. Price range Free to about 800$.
