Best to read up on the newbies guides posted here, and make sure to search before asking... Almost any question you have has been answered before for sure.

Welcome fellow 40D user. I used 18-55 kit lens for quite some time b4 I decided to get a 17-55 for portraits which I take the most. The kit lens aperture not exactly great but ur 40D noise control quite decent even up to iso800 so dun be afraid to up the iso to get those shots. One thing to take note of is that both kit lens picture quality not really good when at the widest end and on the largest aperture(vignetting, soft edges, ca). I normally use at >F8 so the pictures come out pretty well. Good luck and have fun :)

what you have is a good start. I remembered when I started out, all I had was the body. no lens. what you have now, use it.

determine what u like to shoot. thereafter, if you feel like continuing on with the genre you are taking, research and find the lenses suitable for the genre.

Use your current equipment and learn how to use it. No point running around for gear without knowing what to do. Get into the very basics of photography (see the sticky threads).
Other topics you should have a look at: composition; post-processing and image storage; dry cabinet; tripod.

shoot more and experiment around with the aperture and shutter speed your lens and camera can offer u. from there you will understand and know what u will like to have for a lens. then u can start planning on your next fall down the bottomless pit of photography, since u are a canon user there will be many Long fall for u in the future. :bsmilie:
