Yes, Henry's observations are excellent. You really have to get out and shoot as you normally would and see if it is making a difference for you. If not, stick with what you believe in. The brick wall tests are generally going to disappoint a new lens owner, especially with a zoom. I personally have two 18-55 lenses but will only use them for video. I saw a dramatic improvement in my photography with the 16-70 compared to the 18-55. I've done the brick wall tests and didn't see a big difference but after a couple days of outdoor/indoor shooting, I could really see an improvement. I'll occasionally put the 18-55 back on and see if I'm missing something. I'm not.

Thanks for those comments. I will do just that.
