I have a question. I've decided to buy a D80 and have been agonizing as to whether to go for an 18-200 VR or the 18-70 / 70-300 VR combo you have. Maybe I'm imagining it, but after looking at A LOT of pictures from all of these (including yours, which are great, by the way), it seems to me the ones from the 18-70 / 70-300 combo are better somehow. They seem to have better color and contrast and to be slightly sharper, and simply put have more "life" to them. The pictures from the 18-200 seem to be abit dimmer and flatter. It's been my observation from what I've seen, anyway.
The big issue of course, and what I'd be interested in hearing from you, is just how big a pain and inconvenience do you find it to change the lenses while out shooting? I'll mostly be shooting around town, or out in the country, and more scenery and architecture than people. Just wondering what your experience has been in this regard. Do you often find yourself in a situation where you wish you had just the one lens? Or conversly, are you often glad you have the extra 100mm reach w the 70-300? I'd really appreciate some first hand feed back on this...
