This really depends upon your needs, but I would consider several lenses before the 18-200. I had the 18-200 and sold it; the image quality isn't that great (actually, your 18-105 is probably at least as good), so the only thing you're really getting is extra range. When I'm considering a lens, the main consideration is whether it lets me do something I can't already do. For me, I would go in one of two directions: either a longer zoom or a fast prime.For a long zoom, I highly recommend the 70-300 VR. About the only reason to get the 18-200 is to get more range; the 70-300 gets you more long range for less money and has much better image quality. The 70-200 f/2.8 VR would also get you up to 200mm, this time with a fast aperture and outstanding image quality, but is quite a bit more expensive (>$2000). For the value , the 70-300 VR can't be beat, and makes a great complement to the kit lens (which is pretty good, actually). This option gets you a lot more range than your kit lens or the 18-200.
