Ok here is my first post. I am getting back into photography after a several year lapse due to life changes. So I am going to purchase my first DSLR. After much research I have decided on a Nikon D90. I was decided on the lenses until yesterday when I was able to get to the camera store to handle the camera and lenses for the first time. My original thought was to get the Nikon 18-55 VR and the Nikon 55-200 VR. After talking to the salesman at the counter who has been in photography for quite some time convinced me that I should instead get the 18-105 VR because it was a better made lens. He showed me how it was heavier than the 18-55 and had a larger aperture. He also said that the silver ring on the 18-55 signified that it was a lesser grade lens whereas the gold lettering on the 18-105 meant it was of better grade. What is your thoughts on this? Was he telling me the truth or just trying to sell me a more expensive product?
