If you can't afford the 55-300 then the 55-200 VR is a no-brainer.

You use that expression twice where you should be saying "built in motor".

There are several versions of the other lenses and I'm not particularly keen on any of them myself.

My 55-300 was cheaper then my 55-200 so there are deals out there. However the 55-200 is the better lens of the two.
