Which to get -- 22 or 18-55
Get both. If you are willing to go flea-bay, the 22 is available new (kit break-up) for around $110 new. The 18-55 is slightly more. My understanding is that they are both cracking lenses.
I have been lurking in this forum for a few weeks. I have NEVER owned a Canon (have owned virtually everything else) and I am in the market for a mirrorless camera. The new pricing got me interested and am debating whether or not to pull the trigger on one. Believe it or not, it is between this and a Nikon V1!
