Hiya Pal, and welcome to the forum
I've recently been giving the 18-55WR kit lens a good go, and Its impressed, stop it down to around F5/8 and its not bad
I'm only 4fut3, but I look a lot bigger from a distance

Nikon D600, 18-55, 50 F1.8, Sigma 70-200 HSM,180macro.
MZ-7, K-10,K-7, all gripped.
Pentax 35 28-80
Sigma 50 EX Macro.
A sexy little Q with 8.5mm Prime.
And a cup with a gorrila on it, it's also chipped a little, but holds tea perfectly well.

Hi I'm from portadown.

I've shot all my landscapes with the kit lens. Very sharp at f10 imo

Hello and Welcome

The kit lens is pretty decent as mentioned
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.
