It will get you slightly more reach but you will give up AFS and VR. You won't notice an improvement in IQ. If your budget is that limited stick with what you have.

Actually, the 18-70 is an AFS lens. But it does not have VR.

Thanks, you are right. It does have AFS but I didn't find it that effective (as you may have guessed - I forgot it had it). Of course if you need it because you don't have an in-camera motor then yes, it does have AFS.
