Not really meaning to trash the 18-200.  After all, I have it and use it on my D5000. And, honestly, not sure I can really see that much difference in performance between it and the 70-300 on my D5000.

Instead of cheap tires I should have said like putting all-season radials on a sports car. You get greater flexibility and usefulness in a broader range of situations, but at the cost of ultimate performance. I just believe if you are going to pop for the top of the line DX camera (and I know there is some debate on whether the D7100 is the top DX) you should match it with the best lenses you can afford.

Honestly, if I didn't aready have the 70-300 I would pass on both and go for the 70-200 f4
