I bought the D80 about 2 weeks ago along with the Nikon 18-200 zoom. It's great! A little more pricey, but worth it. Only need one lens now. Going to Maui this week and expect to take 100's of pictures.

I would say a lens like the Sigma 17-70mm DC Macro would work better as is combines wide and medium-tele with an aperture ranging from 2.8 to 4.5 and an exceptional fast and clear focus. And the optics of the lens is clearly exceptional. The 18-200 are sluggish and soft.
