I wonder why ppl want to dump their 18-55 asap. I think its a decent lens. Of course it cannot be compared to primes or fast lens, it is after all many considered 'cheapo' lens. It has its limitations of course. I am not sure if there is one perfect lens for everything. Im still new at this, its all a learning experience.
Anyway, its just my 2-cents worth. Cheers!
You can check this thread of the pictures taken with the 'cheapo' lens like the 18-55.

another newbie here.
Lens is totally foreign to me, may i know whether clubsnap has explanations for :
- lens (what the different markings mean)
- whether can swap between nikon/canon etc?
- recommended lens for tele/wide
I went to gallery, but could not sort by camera-models.
I am also lookin at NikonD5000, or Canon500.
its not so good.. get a D90. few bucks diff but way ahead in features that you need.
I never dump my 18-55. I sold it with the camera it came with. And both my D90 and D300s I bought body only, since I already have a Tam 17-50. Many people dump it the first chance they got because they had this weird idea that a more expensive lens will somehow make their pictures better.
Nice thread... some of my pictures with the 18-55 are also inside.

anyway, portrait using 18-105 and 18-55mm..I really think 18-105 would give better result with the longer end...if compare both at 55mm, I really can't tell the diff is there any diff?
nice thread, I posted my photos using the great 18-55 too
