When you buy a professional camera, often times you need a lens other than the "kit lens" provided by the manufacturer. With that in mind, B&H Photo has put together this lens kit for your convenience.
In addition to the 12.3-megapixel DX-format Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens, our kit also includes the 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens. Combined with this DX-format camera, these lenses offer from a wide angle to long telephoto zoom range coverage. In addition, the VR image stabilization found on these lenses will allow you to handhold your camera at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and stable video capture.
