Hi everyone. I'm getting ready to buy a D80, and I've been looking at a good lens to accompany it. Usually I know the advice is to avoid the kit lens, but I haven't had the luck (or ability) to try out these lenses before I buy, so I'm going on a lot of the research I've done. I'm most certainly a beginner, though I've been using a Rebel XT for the past year or so. As I started to put pieces together, I settled on the D80 body with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. It's ~$200 and it seems like a decent lens for a beginner like me. The weird part is J&R lists the "kit" that is the D80 with this lens for $1049 (and is backordered). The combination separately costs $981.94. I checked the descriptions and everything seems the same. Regardless, is there a suggestion for a better lens to accompany this body? Thanks.
