Question about Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens
One of the best (and cheapest) lens for weddings and portraits is the Nikon 50mm f1.8. At under $200 it's a bargain. I shoot a lot of weddings and use this lens a lot.It's small and looks **** on a big camera such as the D200 but it is one of Nikons sharpest ever lens and gives excellent results. My favorite all time portrait lens is the 85mm f1.4 but at nearly $1800 it's a bit pricey. If you are shooting portraits or weddings prime lens's will always give better results. I also have the 18-200 it usually stays in the case as I find it very soft and slow at higher (above 150mm) zooms and also the f stop is not wide enough for good bokeh (out of focus background) effects. The 18-200 is however an excellent lens for indoor and low light shooting as long as you dont zoom to over 100mm - then it gets too soft and slow.
If shooting weddings remember to always shoot in raw quality - white dresses and black suits are a nightmare to expose correctly - with raw you have the ability to edit exposure ev values much, much more than jpgs.

May I suggest another.
Although this goes against (to an extent) the 'G' Series topic. The 18-200mm VR is an excellent lens - yes it's a bit pricey but ideal for a one kit one day lens !

I would recommend the 17-35mm f2.8D ED-IF rather than the G series
