Also consider the 16-105mm

I'm sort of in the same boat, trying to decide on a good travel combo. I can recommend the Tamron 17-50mm/2.8. You could couple it with the 55-200mm for a compact two set-up. I got the 16-105mm with the A700 kit but haven't tried it out (still deciding whether to sell it), but that may be a lens you might also want to add to your list of possibles. If you seldom use anything over 100mm (150mm equiv on 35mm), then this could end up as a very good single lens solution (though I'd be tempted to add a large aperture prime).

The great thing is that all of these options are stabilised :-).

Cheers,
Daniel.
