All are good lenses; the 18-70 has surprisingly good optical quality.

The 18-105 has VR, which is nice for shooting hand-held at slower speeds, or for slow-speed panning, or for shooting in windy conditions or from a moving platform like a tour bus, a ferry boat, a fishing boat, or when you might be slightly out of breath and a bit unsteady of hand; Nikon's Vibration Reduction or "VR" really,really does help.

The 18-135 has the most range of any of the three, but does not have the VR function.

My preference would be, in order, 1)18-105VR, 2)18-70 for compactness and good optics, and 3)18-135 for maximum range.

Get the 18-105, the extra 30mm can be walked within a matter of a few quick steps - the VR is nice to have.

Enjoy!
