Another Nikon D40X Question

Stuart Johnson
>It B&H has the Nikon D40X with an 18-55mm lens for $609.95. They also have a 55-200 VR lens for $229.95. In my prior email I mentioned I would be taking photos of a lot of coins I inherited and will be listing for sale. I also want to get serious about taking quality photos of my turnings.

My questions this time are about the lenses. The main one is the about the 18-55mm and 55-200 mm lens. Which one will I probably use more for the type of photography I've mentioned? Which is a better all around lens? I guess the basic question might better be when are they normally used?

If I was going to buy the body and just one lens which would I be better off buying?

Thanks for the help. The way things are going the camera will probably be out dated and obsolete.
