I just got my new D40 as an early Christmas present and am already looking at other zoom options. I originally thought that I would go with the 18-200 VR AF-S as a single solution, but the more I check the other available lenses and my applications, I beginning to think that maybe I should go with the 18-135 and the 70-300. (The 18-135 for a majority of my indoor shooting; family, around the house, school functions, etc... and the 70-300 for general outdoor/nature and cheerleading/football photo work. Am I looking at this the right way with regard to focal lengeth and lens speed? I don't have problem with spending around $1000 for a good combination. I'm finding, that even after a couple of days shooting with the 17-55 kit lens, it's just not enough lens for my applications and liking. Santa tried! "Bless his heart!" Thanks to all for their valuable input. Merry Christmas!
