I'm looking to order a 18-200mm Nikon lens, do they come with the front 72mm cap ?

AFAIK, they all do. In fact, I'll go even further, definitely comes with a lens cap. Never seen a lens come without one.

They all come with front and back caps and telephotos usually come with a pretty little lens hood as well to keep stray sunlight out of their eyes.

Unless you buy from a bad store, where you can buy the lens for 500 dollar and they later charge you 300 for a special package containing the lens caps and the hood :).

In fact if you go to Nikons web site and look at the specs for any lens you want to buy you will see something like this under the tech specs section.

Included accessories: LC-72 72mm snap-on front lens cap; LF-1 rear lens cap; HB-35 bayonet hood; CL-1018 flexible lens pouch
