I tend to run in Aperture priority mode in the slowest aperture of the lens. On the 18-55 that was 5.6. My 17-70 has an f/4 so it's a stop faster. The range is also a bit longer since it goes to 70. A little more reach for my walk around lens.

So nothing wrong with the 18-55. I just had the opportunity to pick up what I felt was a lens that offered more at a good deal so I picked it up. The dual kit lenses offer a good starter value.

I see. I don't think the nikon kit lenses are bad at all- at least I've heard that they are a fair bit better than the competitors' kit lenses.

I've seen loads of images on Flickr of people using kit lenses + a macro clip on (raynox rings a bell) and they really please me- maybe not the top gear but I still think they're pretty good, I'd be thrilled to get photo's like theirs!

For example...

His images are so amazing!
