D3100 with 18-55mm kit lens inferior to 18-105mm?
Feb 14, 2011

I've read that 18-105mm is optically much better than the 18-55mm. I think of buying D3100 but it only comes with 18-55m unless 18-105mm is separately bought which I believe is more than $300. The question is that is 18-105 worth the difference? I am mostly a family photographer.

Also the is the 230K LCD a problem?

What about the mono audio?

I read that photo quality is very good and I like the lightweight of D3100 over D7000. But I am not sure if I can live with the 18-55, bad LCD (and mono output).
