Re: 18-55 reconsidered

I agree that this lens sometimes gets a bum rap, and is actually better than some people give it credit for. Using F5.6-F9 will yield a significant improvement, especially at the wide end. I usually use the 21 or 15 Limiteds instead for the 24mm and shorter range and have thought about replacing the 18-55 for the midrange 28-35, but after comparing test reports to others in that range, there isn't much difference at F5.6-8.
