Hello,

Total newbie at DSLR and photography, and considering buying a D5200.

There are many different kits out there, and I’m trying to find the best deal possible with the most useful/powerful equipment. I see that I need to choose between having two lenses (18-55mm G VR DX AF-S Zoom Lens with 55-300mm VR Lens) versus a single, more versatile, lens (18-300mm VR Zoom Lens). The latter is more expensive, probably because it is more practical–you don’t have to change lenses as often– but are there differences in quality between the lenses I mentioned?

I gather that lens choices depend on what you intend to shoot. As a beginner, I will try exploring all types of photography (portraits, nature shots, artsy photos from close-ups to landscapes.

Thanks!
