The price of the D5100 with the 18-105 VR is the same as with a 55-300 VR.

Probably the 18-105 VR is a better choice for this person?

Well really only you can answer that as you may have more insight into their intended use?

At the moment the D5100 is arguably the best bang for the buck in the market.  Don't know if they're open to it but a refurb D5100 w/ an 18-55 and a 55-200 goes for a whopping $549!

Other than the trivial preferences often bandied about here (like "menu diving"....yeah, sure two taps of the button & done) it does not have the flash commander - is this crucial to them? Could you guess?

For that price you get an excellent sensor & that's the heart of the camera.
