Well, I had the 18-200vr 3.5-5.6 but I could hardly get the f-stops under 8. And it was a heavy lens to keep in my bag for something I hardly used. Now, I mostly shoot with my 50 mm 1.4 and fisheye. I had a 105mm that I loved but an ex ran off with, bitch, that I was hoping to replace with the same lens or something a little longer. Cause I'm a size queen. There is a store which rents lenses, I might just go through all of their options and see which suits my needs. I haven't tried much wildlife photography though, it seems like it might be fun getting into. (I'm actually quite a terrible photographer, and I am working at improving)
Ok, well 18-200mm is pretty damn versatile. Maybe look at trying out a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR? I had the Canon equivalent of that lens, before I started buying 'L' gear, and it's pretty good, and not too bulky/heavy for what you get out of it.
I also have a 100mm f/2.8 for macro stuff - It WICKED. One of the sharpest lenses I've ever used. No stabilisation though, but meh, with that lens I've never needed it. I can understand that you'd miss your 105mm
Edit: Wildlife photography is frustrating Make sure you have a lot of patience if you want to get into it, because you can never make the little bastards do what you want them to, and when they do what you want, half the time you fuck up the shot Or maybe that's just me
