Hello friends!

I'm excited about taking my first digital photography course and making my first dSLR purchase. After much debate, I've chosen the D5000. Next question, as a beginner, what lens kit should I get with my D5000? So far, I know I like to take candid shots of people, and like to use natural light (therefore a camera lens that allows for low light capture.)

Which lens kit do you recommend?

NIKON D5000 W/18-55 VR LENS
NIKON D5000 W/18-105 VR LENS
NIKON D5000 W/18-55VR & 55-200VR
NIKON D5000 W/18-55VR & 55-200DX
NIKON D5000 W/18-105VR & 55-200VR (too costly? at $1329.00)
NIKON D5000 W/18-105VR & 55-200DX ($1289)
NIKON D5000 W/18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens + .48x Wide Angle Panoramic HD Series Fisheye w/ Macro
Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera w/ 18-55mm VR Lens + Sigma 70-300mm Zoom Lens

Advantages/disadvantages of certain choices?

Thanks so much - am sooo happy about this new adventure!!
