I've decided that I'm unwilling to compromise on the D90 body. I will have this camera for several years and I want the most I can reasonably afford, even if it means saving up for a while to get better glass. The movie mode on this camera means nothing to me, but having the slightly better cmos sensor does.

That's an interesting approach. I think if you speak to a number of experienced photographers they will suggest that plan is a bit backward. A quality lens can last you easily a decade and will impact the quality of your photos immediately. The compromises of the 18-200 will also impact every shot - albeit in a negative fashion. In the end, of course it is completely your choice how you proceed. But I would suggest you think about other lens options. The 18-200 will not only be poor for softball but for a number of other uses as well.
Or to put that another way, most people who willwant the "best"DSLR body NOW, may be tempted toreplace the camera body in 3 years time, and then in another three years time after that.... but if you buy GOOD glass, you will probably NEVER have to replace that!!!
