Kit lens: Nikon 18-70 vs 18-135

I've searched the forum for these two lenses, but haven't found any posts that directly compare the two.

I notice the 18-135 is actually cheaper than the 18-70. How do the two compare - or, perhaps I might ask, what makes the lens with the greater range less expensive?

Also, how would they compare to third party lenses, say the Sigma 17-70 and 18-125 (or even 18-200)?

I'm really looking forward to getting a D80, but as it's a bit more than the budget comfortably allows, I'm going to be limited to one lens to start...particularly as you have to pay extra for Nikon Capture NX

Any help would be appreciated. Cheers!
