I would go with what you've got. It's great for beginners. If you are in dire need of a fast lens, depending on what you shoot have a look at a prime lens 50f1.8, 35f1.8 or the sigma lens.

THe 50 and sigma lenses are relatively inexpensive to get your feet wet.
By no means am I an experienced photographer. Just my take. Congrats on your purchase and enjoy.

I agree. You don't buy the 55-210mm for its speed, but for its focal length. What I wondered was why he wants a macro instead of a good wide-angle.
