Do you still use 18-55 kit lens after you "graduate" from it?


I am using Nikon D90 with 35mm DX prime and 18-200mm lenses, mainly shooting my toddlers with the prime lens these days. Once a while I would pull out the superzoom, but I usually prefer the photo I got with the prime. I have been thinking about upgrading for a while now. The 35mm is just not wide enough for a lot of situations. The X-T20 with Fuji prime lenses are very tempting,  but not sure if getting the 18-55 with it is the right approach in the long run or not. The 18-55 surely is a pretty good lens based on several reviews and threads here. And it is also a cheaper approach, at least at the beginning. So I am curious about if that good kit lens is still in your bag, and your suggestion.

Thank you.
