Re: Lens recommendations
Nikon 50mm f1.8 and Nikon 55-200 vr. You could probably get the pair for under £200. They'd be the must haves for me. I'd be inclined to get them, then spend the remainder on a flash (Nikon SB600) and a good tripod.
After that, it comes down to what type of shots you get into. The Nikon 18-200 is brilliant and hugely flexible, and would mean that you could sell your kit lens (you'd get about £70), and obviously wouldn't need the 55-200. Quite pricey, though it's a popular lens so there may be bargains to be had.
The Tokina 12-24 f4 is a superb wide lens, my favourite lens I've used so far - again, it's fairly pricey, but it's pretty amazing value for money too.
