Tom so if Canon has a version of a lens comparable to Nikon VR 18-200mm would you buy the Canon then?

I'm not sure. Fortunately this alternative does not present itself, as Canon has no equivalent to the Nikkor VR 18-200mm. So I don't have to decide...

Sigma has the 18-200 OS but it's not as good as the king of all VR zooms.

This is a good question and as i plan to get into DSLR myself, i already compared these nice cameras.

With the Nikon you would have a very good camera for not that much money. And probably the DX 18-200mm VR would go with it well.
Dont know if its aperture is good and ... you would always have to carry that big lens. Personally i would like to have a 18-80 or something like that already with VR.

With the Canon you would have a camera with roughly same pic quality but magnesium body and live view. And pay ~300€ extra for the body.
but there are better lenses out there, perhaps 17-85 with stabilisation (but bad aperture) so the kit lens would be enough for a while.

Or if you wanna, wait until the successor of D80. Then you will have the good sides of these two united in it (live view, and perhaps a smaller lens with VR).

Good Luck!
