I also just ordered a d200 from berger bros from Lisa (thanks for the tip) Lisa was great. I am a new DSLR and Nikon owner and will be buying lenses to live with the body. My thoughts are the lenses are less of a depriciating asset than the camera so I am budgeting to spend a little more hoping to keep the lenses for a long time. I am planning on a SB 800 and to start 3 lenses in the 500 - 1600 dollar range. 4G card + card reader. Any thoughts on the lenses as this is where Im a little stuck. The VR feature seems like a benefit but the lenses arent as fast. I was thinking...

the 10.5 mm fisheye (I've never used a dslr fisheye lense - sounds like fun...)
17-55 f/2.8 dx (somewhat limited but a good lense)
70-200 f/2.8 VR ( I would think this is a good lense, but have no experience w/it)
the new 18-200 VR (very versatile, any thoughts?)

any other suggestions would be appreciated. I'll be shoting nature, sports, pretty much anything and everything.
