i bought the d5100 bundle. Extra lens actually had a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews on amazon so its done now. If she doesn't like it atleast she knows she can return it easily or exchange it.

The 55-200 vr is a good lens, well reviewed and much loved by those who prefer a smaller, lighter kit.  There is a 55-200 without VR this is an older and not as interesting lens.  It is not the lack of stabilization but the lesser optics of that lens.

Even people who eventually upgrade to the 70-300vr often keep their 55-200vr for those days they feel like traveling light.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.
