Hi, I have a Nikon D40x, I have been using the 18-55mm lens that came with the camera to death. (well it still works, but you know what i mean.) I really want to start taking some street photography style images but my lens doesn't allow me to do so from a distance. I have been looking at the 55-200mm VR lens. (I am in the states at the moment and can pick it up in store for the same price that i would cost me online at home. do you guys think that a 200mm would be a good all round lens for me to use? I am also keen to extend my Images into other areas. I need something that i can use for a range of shots. thanks for your input. -Dave here is my blog if you would like to see what i have been up to with my current lens. bowman1981photos.blogspot.com Thanks.
