Notion that kit lenses are Dud
7 months ago

The prevailing view (to me at least) seems to be that kit lenses are no good.  I don't understand the logic of this.  is it not in the interest of manufacturer to make sure that their products are sold with the best of quality?  If they sell a camera but packaged it with a so-so lens, doesn't that give the impression that the camera is of low quality and illicit a negative reaction from consumers?  That would be bad marketing, would it not?
