I use the kit lens a lot. probably have over 4k shots on it already. It was just dxo reviewed and just as i thought it scored almost as good as the 24-70.... at 1/4 the price (on ebay).

I honestly think whoever didn't get it made a mistake. I really wanted the 24-70 but the more i used the kit lens the more i couldn't justify 1200$.

I do love my 35mm and i had the 55mm but sold it. Although i loved the sharpness of the 55, i just prefer the 35mm Focal length. 55 was Not long enough for portraits for my taste and not wide enough for landscapes.
