Fair enough, but I would much rather spend $160 - $275 for a quality lens than $100 for something that will simply project a passable image onto the sensor.  To me, that is the difference between the 16-45 and the 18-55.  I have the 18-55 right now, and its one redeeming quality is an O-ring.  Optically, it is the worst lens I own...

Also, the DA 40 XS is more capable than either the DA 35 or the DA 50, *and* it tends to be cheaper as well.  As others have said though, keep an eye on the lens cap, because it will get away from you
