I've owned both the 55-200mm & (currently) the 70-300mm VR and liked both.
I sold the 55-200mm to get the 70-300mm VR.

However, for what your using it for, the 55-200mm would be your best bet.
Nikon D7500 / Nikon D800e
Nikkor AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR / Nikkor 20mm f/2.8
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR / 2 Nikon SB-800
Bogen/Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod & monopod
Samsung Galaxy S9 plus

Multiple lenses of less ambitious zoom ranges will give you higher quality images than a jack-of-all-trades-and-master-of-none lens will. The convenience of not having to change lenses comes at a price.
