    I agree. I got my D40 kit with the Nikon AF-S 55-200 mm (as well as 18-55). I love the 55-200 (I don't think mine's VR but its still nice). It might not be long enough for you, but it is a nice lens.

    55-200 isn't hardly long enough for really good nature/wildlife pictures. It's a very sharp lens for it's price, but it just lacks that little bit of extra reach you need. If you have 300 to spend I'd honestly save another 100 and pick up a used 70-300 VR.

    If you don't want to spend that then the 55-200 is a good little lens. I really enjoy mine, although mine is only being used to get by with until I can afford a 70-300 VR.
