    no probs, but dont skip the first part of my post also. it took me well over a year of using the kit lens, then when it limited me in low light, only then did i get another lens to overcome that limitation. doesnt mean you HAVE to buy the 50mm as well just bcoz i did. different people got different shooting needs.
    a Nikon body, some lenses, a flash, and a whole lot of dusty photos

    Hear Hear! If you can't produce nice pictures on a kit lens, you will not be able to produce nice pictures on any lens. The only thing restricting you is yourself.
    Stuff I shot with the 18-55 (non-VR) kit lens on a D40x:

    please none of those depends on what you are going to shoot answers if you were me what would you get?
    i got a 18-200 sigma. it was perfect for the formula drift this year as I was shooting at both ends of the zoom.

    55-200 or 35.... the answer will have to come from yourself. Everyone needs and workflow is different even in a similar event.

    Got a 50mm/1.8 because it was cheap!

    However, I do agree it depends on your needs and if the 50mm wasn't so cheap, I'll probably use the funds to save for something I really need.

    Personally, I feel the 50mm is a tad too long on a crop body especially indoor/inhouse shots.
