The 18-55 is great. (Seoraksan, Korea)

A few shots from hiking the other weekend. First time I really gave the 18-55 a chance since I got my 5N, and whaddya know, I ended up leaving it on most the day.

The lens didn't magically get better in the past year, but I certainly did. We don't want to leave these lenses on all the time because they're not particularly fast and don't have a fancy distinction, but in most applications they perform admirably. With it's smooth manual ring, tight build, and metal casing, plus pretty decent sharpness and contrast, I think this lens punches above its weight in the 18-55 3.5-5.6 category. 
Anyways. Between that trip and all the hubbub about no premium zooms, I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
