    Please recommend a lens to me.

    I just came back from a cruise in California and there were multiple times where I needed to zoom in and all I have is the stock 18-55mm lens. I told myself then and there that I needed to buy a new lens before my next cruise. Could someone please recommend something to me that is nice but inexpensive cause I am on a budget.

    Thanks

    How about the Nikon 55-200? It has VR and is cheap for a telezoom!

    You may need more than 200mm at the long end though.

    I assume since its for cruises, you will have plenty of light... go with the Nikon 70-300mm VR. cant be beat in its focal range or price range.

    I'm going against the flow here and I'm going to suggest the 55-200VR.
    If you are on a tight budget it can't be beaten in the value for money stakes.
