It's been out of production since 2006, but you can find mint copies of the 28-105 Nikkor for $150-175, and it's a terrific walk-around lens on a DX platform. It's range and its 1:2 reproduction ratio make it ideal for my style of casual shooting. I walked over to a neighbor's house this afternoon, and grabbed a few shots while we had a cool drink. I think a number of us are using the 28-105 as our walk-around. If you're a member of the club, please add some pics to this thread.
