I got the Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f-4-5.6G several years ago and it is wonderful. It's not too heavy and auto focuses with the entry level Nikon D60. It takes absolutely amazing photos and is so easy to use. It allows you the ability to autofocus or manually focus which is nice. The pictures that it takes are so crisp and clear. The color quality is great and it's a really nice fast lens so you get good pictures in lower light. It's a good zoom distance and the VR seems to help with the stability. It's got a good range too and is nice for traveling or for shooting sports, etc. It's nice to be able to get a great shot without having to be so close up. It handles quick movements really well and it's excellent for nature shots and portaits. It's not too heavy which is good if you want to bring it with you when you're traveling. I've been incredibly happy with this lens and it's compatible with the other cameras if I decide to upgrade.
