Re: Kit lens for the large majority, because lens shopping is difficult

Not everyone comes to DPReview & spends time trying to educate themselves.

You are right - a lot of people rely on friends, advertising, and sales people to help decide.  Even with doing research, however, there is so much information out there that the process can be very confusing.

When I was preparing to buy my first DSLR, I did my best to research the options.  This is how I "stumbled upon" DP Review.  But even so, it is hard to know what information to rely on.  Overall, I am satisfied with most of the choices I made, and now the real "self-education" begins!

Thanks to the great people on these forums, I am learning a lot.
