1) Best all around right now i would say is the Nikon 18-200 VR ($750 w/o extortion fee), though people seem to like the fast 17-55 F/2.8 (~$1200) as well.

2) For Macro, there's the 105 VR ($830) that's also hot right now

3) For Tele... I don't know, but you can look at Nikon site for fast prime at 300mm or more. For affordable tele zoom, Nikon has a 70-300 VR ($530) coming out soon that you can now pre-order.

4) You forgot the super wide... that would be the Nikon 12-24 ($900)
