Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm F/3.5-5.6 AF-S VR DX G ED Lens
What do you think of this lens for a D60? I am looking for a nice middle range lens. I already have a 18-55, 50mm and a 70-300. Sometimes that 70-300 is cumbersome and the 18-55 is not quite enough.

The 18-105mm has about the same build quality and optical performance of the 18-55mm. Both are kit lenses and optically excellent. If you are happy with the 18-55mm and are looking for more range, the 18-105mm should fit your requirements.
If you are looking for improved optical performance and better build quality you might want to consider the 16-85mm.

The 18-105, while not top-shelf glass, is certainly no slouch either. I have yet to have anyone say, "Nice capture, but you took it with that dog of a kit lens...."
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!

Depending on prices where you are and your requirements, you may want to consider the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
I replaced my 18-135 with it, and while the af was a little slower than lenses from the Nikon stable, I really appreciated the extra IQ and ability to use it in low light.
