Cheap and good i can say, unless you are willing to get a 18-200mm its ~1k there. Here is wad i have for you "AF-S VR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED DX - $375 (CP, Feb08 - khaiseng) | $360 (John, Aug08 - PersianCatz) | $335 (AP-F, Nov08 - CatByTe) " This is from the Nikon sticky thread,do read up more abt the price list for 2009. If i'm not wrong,i see that you are getting the lens as 2nd right? If you are,check for front/back focusing problem and lens condition,if you think its okay,then go for it. If not just source around for more
P.S. the search tool maybe useful.
