Only one lens to go with a D300

If you had to choose only one lens to begin playing with your D300, what lens would that be ?

I red good reviews on the 18-200VR here and on other websites. I used to have a sigma 18-125 with my 20D and never got satisfied with this piece of glass (softness, focus not accurate). So will the Nikon 18-200 last longer or is that the kind of lens you inevitably replace by an other one ?

I was also looking at the 70-200VR with the aim of buying later another lens at the wide end. I prefer waiting to pay the price and having something sharp rather than being disappointed again.

Thanks for your advice.

PS: I am not a pro nor a beginner and my preferred subjects are landscapes, people, macro.
