up to the 70-300, or is this something I wouldn't really notice?

I got a D60 with the kit lens and also got the 70-300m VR, which is massively impressive.

However, the gap between the 18-55 and 70-300 (the 55-70 gap) really annoyed me after a few weeks. So I sold the 18-55 VR and bought the 18-105VR lens. It's a great walk around lens and feels much better made than the 18-55. the extra reach is outstanding and I find that I'm swapping lenses much less frequently.

I guess you have to decide, do you really value the additional reach of the 70-300 over the 55-200?
