Nikon 55-300mm f4.5-5.6 G AF-S DX VR for the nikon d5200

It is the perfect and obvious choice for a second lens if you buy a Nikon D5200, dovetailing neatly with the standard 18-55mm kit lens, giving you the widest flexibility with just two lenses. It incorporates NIKKOR Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which means that focus is quick and quiet enough for movie making. Whilst it packs a punch, it is compact and not too heavy.
