Show Off Your Kit Lens Photos
Apr 18, 2012

Okay I'm in the market for a faster lens, mostly for portraits and low light stuff. In the meantime I have seen a of posts questioning the quality of the kit lens. My own experience tells me that the Sony E 18-55 is the best of the buch.

I took this one in Las Vegas. It's glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly installed at Bellagio in Las Vegas, "Fiori di Como."

Please post your favorite "kit" photos.

I've not touched the 1855 for quite a while now after getting the 18200.. but will probably use it again for casual indoor shots.

Here is a photo I took 2 months ago. Shot the butterfly dead on center... didn't have much time to recompose.

The kit lens is a very capable lens I think, just two pictures I like:

I'm seeing a lot of great photos. My favorites are the NYC galleries and Bruce's Barley (think it's barley) plant.

Not my favorite but it's the only 5n portrait, taken with the kit lens, I had in my gallery. Click to enlarge.
