I picked the 18-55mm in the trio

I don´t agree that 18-55 WR is a good lens. In fact I am very dissapointed. At 18mm wide open it sucks and you have to push it to minimum 5.6. I does not have the color and contrast that one could expect from a god lens. I regret that I bought it and I almost never use it anymore. Cheers

Because it is the only one of the three that is WR. Plus unlike others here, I found the lens to have a very good contrast and sharpness characteristic with little CA at all. The idea of picking a trio is to round out a users lens lineup to cover many different tasks and scenarios. Hardly anyone uses an 18-55mm WR wide open, if you want a fast lens, the 50mm is recommended in this trio.

See? One that is a good landscape lens, wr rated, f/5.6 onward... one is a bright lens, and one covers telephoto quite well.
