Which 18-200 is best for the D80

Hi,

I though choosing my first D-SLR would be hard... Well not as hard as the lens kit. No lens so far as I have a Canon AE1-Program.

So the D80 it is, and due to budget and use (lots of traveling) one of the 18-200mm lens seems a good option for me. Now Nikon is expensive but VR, Sigma and Tamron are much cheaper and not bad IQ according to various tests.

One question about the Sigma. According to http://www.photozone.de the focusing is far from perfect when tested on a Canon 350D. Is it better on the D80?

My other option (because I love macro) was Sigma 17-70mm + 70-200mm f2.8 but many people are working hard to convince me that changing lens in a moving vehicle with 2 young boys climbing on my back is a bad idea.
So 18-200mm but which one is best on the D80 please.
And because I love macro, why not the Sigma 150mm macro.
Thanks for your help,
Patrick
