Hi Javier,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Both the 18-55mm and the 18-105mm are entry level lenses. The primary difference is the 18-105mm will provide more range at additional cost. In other words the 18-105mm is more versitle than the 18-55mm so you are paying for convienience. Same can be said of the 18-200mm VR.
Both lenses will work perfectly on a D300S.
Depending what you will be shooting in the future you may find yourself wanting faster lenses and zooms with less range 17-55mm for example start at about $1250.00 and go up frome there.
As both lenses are DX although they will work on a FX body (D700, D3, D3X) in crop mode only, it would not be a very good match because you would only be using the center portion of the sensor.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
