    Default Lens for D5000

    Hi

    Can anyone tell me which Lens I can get for shooting with the D5000 apart from the kit Lens 18-55mm. I need a longer reach lens but I am not sure which Telephoto Lens I can use.

    Appreciate.

    the 55-200VR is a very good value lens, cheap yet very sharp, balances nicely on your d5000

    you get best results when shooting at f/8-f/11, so it helps if you have a tripod, otherwise the VR can compensate somewhat
