Both are tested here:

It seems the 18-70 is sharper wide open, but the 18-55 is pretty good when stopped down. The vignetting doesn't seem as bad on the 18-55.

That's a really nice shot - how did you get the saturation on the sunset -did you use exposure compensation?

I've just bought a D200 (I was in Malaysia and couldn't resist the opportunity) and am using the 18-70mm with it. The only focusing difficulties I've encountered so far have been carbon unit (ie user) error - choosing the wrong focus zone via the viewfinder. I was originally concerned about my choice of lensbecause I'd have liked to get the unavailable 18-200. But so far, I'm happy enough - if you've a flickr account, you can see the EXIF data...

Yes, I did use minus exposure compensation to get that effect in the sunset.
