18-55 kit lens - how good? Please help

I want to buy a A3000 or Nex camera with the 18-55 kit lens, if that lens is good enough for daytime landscape photos, cityscapes and close ups of flowers with decent bokeh.  I currently use a Panasonic LX7 or ZS19, which does a very good job of all of the above even though they have  small sensors.

Will I see a noticeable improvement with the kit lens' JPEGs when viewing on my 27" IMac and retina display iPad?  Greatly appreciate your inputs

Thanks,

Joel
