D40 Camera

I was kindly given a voucher for Wildings Photo shop here in the UK and would like to put it towards a new lens.

In addition to the above kit lens I own the 35mm prime lens.

I'm looking for a lens which covers 18-55 and beyond but doesn't have to be a super zoom. Want it for everyday shooting. Must be able to produce better images than the kit lens and they will mainly be outdoor.

I was considering

Nikon 18-105 VR AF-S DX EDNikon
AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens
DX 17-80mm

Comments and any other suggestions please

Max budget up about £300.00 and I would consider 2nd hand.
