She specifically mentioned macro zoom so I think she wants to avoid lens switching. I think she would be happiest with the 18-200. Of course that would then make the 18-70 somewhat redundant.
Kinda wish there was something like 14-40mm. That would be great for indoor and then just a 18-200mm for outdoor. The wide angle 10-20mm zoom is pretty pricey.
Half the price of that Nikon 10-20 zoom

> > > Having compared it directly to my Nikkor 12-24mm f/4 AF-S DX, it's obvious to me that this Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 is better than my Nikkor.
This Tokina 11-16mm is the world's fastest and sharpest ultrawide lens for small format digital cameras (Nikon DX and Canon 1.6x). Considering its bargain price of under $600, its the world's best ultrawide lens for digital SLRs.
It is very well made. Its distortion is much easier to correct than the Nikkor's.
If you haven't actually shot with these lenses, you'd think this Tokina competes with Nikon's 12-24mm f/4, Canon's 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, Sigma's 10-20mm f/4-5.6, Tamron's 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 and Tokina's own 12-24mm f/4. (Tamron announced work on a 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, in January 2008, but it doesn't exist.) I compared all of the older lenses back in 2005 in my Digital Wide Zoom Comparison. < < <
