Looking for Zoom for Nikon D70

My wife wants a zoom for birthday for her Nikon D70. It came with a Nikon AF-S DX 18-70mm lens. I would think something longer with image stabilization might be nice.

Two I've looked at online are--

Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Nikkor Lens
Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS AF

The Nikon is a bit faster on the long end but also pricier. Reviews of both show pluses and minuses for each.

Any opinions on these or any others I should consider?

I figure the longer zoom would replace the 18-70 for all outdoor use and the 18-70 would be used only when she wanted something less bulky.

She's not quite to the level of serious amateur, more occasional hobbyist. I want to buy her something nice but it doesn't have to be super professional level. Price limit is about $500.
