What do you type of photography do you intend on using it for? Have a couple of zooms myself for my nikon but dont like being limited to 55mm, Tend to mainly use a 18-300mm.. ticks all the boxes for me, got the wide angle for closer/landscape work and the zoom for telephoto and portrait shots. Not cheap but no need to swap lenses most of the time.

You get what you pay for with lenses. The 55-300mm isnt a bad lens, not much good for landscape photos but a capable zoom lens, only stops down to f4.5 so you may need to bump up your iso a little if shooting handheld.

Jessops are pricey mate, sames lens is much cheaper http://m.valuebasket.com/en_GB/Nikon...rpkBoCn4bw_wcB
