Question on kit lens with D90 - 18-55 vr..
Jan 31, 2011

My fiance would like to get a dslr. I did some research and figured the D90 would be a good start. I have some glass she can share. I have a 24-85, 17-55, 70-200 vr, 300 f4, and 400 f2.8 ( ah yeah, a nifty 50 as well) There is enough overlap for us to share glass, but I was wondering if that kit lens is any good? Anyone here have input?

I remember years ago borrowing an 18-70 kit lens that was not too bad.

What are the strengths or weaknesses? Is she better off buying a body and a different walk about lens?

I appreciate your input, I am not up on all the new glass..
