18-200mm vs 18-55mm + 55-200mm

Well it's got to the point where I can't fit anything more in my camera bag, and that's partly due to the fact that I have 2 different kit lenses, the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm.

I was thinking about selling both and then using that money to partially pay off for an 18-200mm, but the guy at Tall's has been telling me that the smaller the range, the better the sharpness... or something along the lines of that.

In other words, he's saying that having two separate lenses is better than having a 2-in-1 lens.

Is this true? I've looked at reviews on Amazon and it seems to be fine. The only thing I'm concerned about is the price.



EDIT: I shoot Nikon
