Some of the New Mexico photos in this link are taken with the Nikon D40 and 18-55 kit lens. Don used to post on here some years ago many Southwest USA images using the D40 kit. The images were absolutely stunning.

If he can get these results with the 18-55 so can others. The problem with the 18-55 is its not expensive enough. If it cost $1000 everyone would love it.

hecalso took tons of pics of New York City with the D60 and kit. They were jaw dropping.

I used my 18-55mm AF-P kit lens yesterday for the first time properly yesterday. Was able to get pretty creative Macro shots and I shot the Night Sky (Orion) for my first time. It performs amazingly, I am quite sureprised!

Glad you're excited.

"Kit lens" doesn't mean "bad lens" in many instances -- rather, a bargain. It's just that certain people need something to step on in order to make them feel taller.

Several different sources say the AF-P is a big step up from its predecessor, optically. I hope they are right as I have a D5600 kit in the mail.
