Just ordered a Nikon D80.....

I just ordered a Nikon D80 body (here in NYC). The camera will arrive tomorrow. I wanted to get an opinion as to which lens should I buy? A pro photographer friend of mine suggests the Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 at a price tag of $1335. And at a later date, purchase the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.

I prefer to get the Nikon 18-200 f/3.5 VR, all-in-one lens at $750. He says that I should spend the extra $ and get the sharper, brighter lens and to not sacrifice on quality.

Pros and cons? I need help before I take the plunge. I want to choose the right lens for my new D80! Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
