Should get or not??
You didn't even state what you want to use it for how do we know? General rule, if you don't know whether you need it, you don't.

decent zoom? oh then 200-300 is pretty more than enough.

I think the 18-55VR and 55-200VR are a good pairing for a budget shooter.
To me, having the additional 200-300mm (with the newer 55-300VR) is definitely useful, especially if it isn't going to cost you an arm and a leg for the extra reach.
I do think that once you get over 150mm on a DX camera, kinda hard to get fast enough shutter speeds to freeze hand-shake or motion blur.

I feel that the 18-55 kit lens is very decent. Don't buy something if you don't see the use for it, save the money for something you really need. Don't buy for the sake of buying.

If u r considering buying the 55-200, then I will suggest to consider this option. Not really sure abt the IQ but the reach of my 200 is juz not enuff. N like one of the bros said, after 150mm, it's hard to shoot handheld (even with vr on).
