When funds allow I may invest in a Nikon 18-200 or 300. The Tamron is just something to learn with I guess.

Actually, the 18-200 or 18-300 wouldn't be the best choice for the D3200 either. Multiple lenses of less ambitious zoom ranges will usually provide better image quality, and they'll usually cost less too. You'll just have to change lenses as the occasion arises. (But that's why you got an interchangeable lens camera, isn't it?)

So would something like a 55-105 be a better choice?

Bit of everything really. Don't have a specific area as of yet. Probably why I opted for the 70-300 Tamron.

The 18-55 kit lens is a good choice for general use. A step up might be the Sigma 17-70 or the Nikon 16-85.

Both Sigma 17-70 & the Nikon 16-85 are great for longer performance. The Sigma 17-70 has a strong build quality with extreme settings to make it more useful model for user. It has a duo-cam system to extend the lens however one should not expect the performance levels of a true macro lens from this piece.
However the Nikon 16-85mm is designed for use with Nikon DX digital SLR cameras which is ideal for wide-angle shots and portraiture.
You can pick the lens which is worth investing for longer performance & shooting capability.
