that is his point, monetarily, it's cheaper to spend less on a body and get a nice piece of glass IF you care about image quality. Your post should be, don't care about image quality?, and just want some range? look at these lenses.

Both views have their place when looking at making a kit that is not expensive. Want quality, look at this kit, want range, look at this. I don't think he was saying you had a bad idea, i just think he was offering a different opinion on how to build a kit if you want to save some money and care about image quality over focal range.

And that's my point... all three lenses indeed perform very well! I understand his point completely. But I'm pointing out that for a lot of shooters there is a clearly defined point of diminishing returns with lenses. Especially when you can get such good performance from the ones I've mentioned.
