Nikon D5300 + 18-55mm: What additional lens should I get?


Broken In

I'm planning to get the Nikon D5300 (not D5500 in any case) and of course as usual the 18-55mm kit lens. But now I've got 2 more choices of lens to go with but both of them look equally good.

And following are the two options in which I'm confused.

#1 Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens -- total @ 17-19K


#2 Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED + Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35 mm f/1.8G Lens -- total @ 17-18K

And for my requirement; in majority I'll be making tech videos for YouTube (for which 35mm seems good but will 18-55mm do the same magic?) - Landscape photography(quite often) - general photography(more of experimenting with camera's feature) - wildlife photography (2-3 times an year).

Thanks if you can help me out ;-)

for your requirement option 2 is better ...although in wildlife you will miss 55-300 but you can compromise with 55-200 too :) 35mm fits in ur requirement as you said..get it
