Nikon 55-300mm f4.5-5.6 G AF-S DX VR Lens

Buy a Nikon D5200 - the Nikon 55-300mm lens

This lens offers a 5.5x zoom range with focal lengths equivalent to 82.5mm to 450mm on DX format D-SLRs, enabling the user to really get up close and personal with distant subjects. The Vibration Reduction system delivers sharp results, even for hand-held telephoto shots or slow shutter speeds. It is the perfect and obvious choice for a second lens, 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. If you buy a Nikon D5200, buy this lens too.

 The Nikon 35mm f1.8 prime lens with autofocus is a great optional extra, which will give photographers an excellent sharp, cheap prime lens. It is compatible with the Nikon's DX Digital SLRs. It has a fast maximum aperture which delivers a bright viewfinder experience and subtle background blurring with a shallow depth of field. It incorporates the NIKKOR Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quiet accurate focus operation, and is a great prime lens for shooting landscapes or taking discreet snapshots, with a picture angle approximately that of the human eye. When used with a DX-format digital SLR camera, the picture angle is the 35mm equivalent focal length of 50mm. The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f1.8G has two focus modes; M/A (manual override autofocus) and M (manual focus). In addition the lens features a rubber seal to minimise moisture damage around the mount. Ideal for you if you buy a D5200 DSLR.
