I finally got my stuff shipped in today. Took less than 10-20 shots with the 55 just to test and wow I am mighty impressed. Some of these shots make me think why on earth would I still use this kit lens unless I really really needed a wider angle shot, and mainly because I have no other short focal length lenses at the moment...

I think that only taking shots at a 55mm focal length because the lens is sharper is missing the real point of photography.

Can you tell me the real point of photography (and where did EvilKarma mention sharpness in his post)?
