And in defense of some of the people you mentioned...I think the prevailing opinion isn't so much "the 18-55 is just as good as the 35/1.4" as it is "the 35/1.4 isn't ´╗┐better enough´╗┐ than the 18-55 to merit owning both unless you need the extra f-stops."

I own both

The sharpness of the 18-55mm is impressive for a "standard" zoom, much better than my Sigma 2

8 24-70 mm macro EX on the 5D2

My copy is a good one without centering obvious defect

The 35mm is as the 60mm interesting to be able to play with DOF and it's small and unintrusive

The 18-55mm plus the body allows to have a compact package with super IQ for allround photography
