If you don't know, best is to get the kit lens yes?

Best to buy from a reputable retailer like Cathay Photo from Peninsula Plaza etc. Would recommend against getting the kit lens bundled with the camera body and instead invest a bit more and buy a better lens separately of your choice and needs

The kit lens is good enough to start off with, and in good hands, it is very capable of producing excellent images.

To start with, the threadstarter is not very clear of his needs, so there's no need to really make more choices than necessary. Just get started with the kit lens.

The 18-55 IS kit lens is surprisingly decent for its price. I used it for 6 mths before finally switching to 17-55 caus I need the larger aperture and thinner DoF for my portrait work. Even now I still keep it just in case I wanna travel light.
