That is very true, but the whole thread suffers from that.

The kit lens is not very poor quality.

Stopped down, in the right hands, it can produce very good results.
I have several albums full of A4 size prints to prove it.

Still, I belive that there are better choices. Esspecialy, when I read all these threads about repleacing the kit lens, and the suggestions to buy Sigmas or Tamrons. Canon is believed to have be the best lens collection amog all DSLR's players, so why people have such prosaic problems?

Admittedly the 400D shines when used with L grade lenses, but that
probably applies to any dSLR with a 10MP sensor.

Where did you glean that Canon doesn't have a very clear idea what
to do with EF-S lenses? How do you explain the release of the
expensive 17-55 F2.8 IS?

I would said 'at last', others went this path long time ago. But still this is a very good sign.

As for better other brand choices, no doubt you can speak without
authority about those as well.

No, I wasn't intrested too much in other brands, I considerd only nikon and canon. But today the market is much more interesting. The future of Nikon/Canon dominance is no longer sure.
