    I am new to DSLRs. Just bought Canon EOS 400d. The Focal lenght of this kit lens is doing fine for me, I mean my requirements. The 18-55mm. I want to know if theres any lens which sharper than this?

    So I can replace this lens for general photography. I will be buying a Wide Angle 10-22 MM LEns for the same. But till than I have some areas to cover which fall under 18 mm. Also, I need an appropriate zoom like 55 mm so I can do my other things without any problem. So Is there any lens which I can buy to replace this kit lens which is sharper than this at least at 18 mm.

    A little cheaper but still sharper than the "kit" lens.....

    Again it all depends on your budget there are soooo many lenses out there the only limit is your wallet.

    I replaced my kit lens with the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8. Better IQ than the kit lens and the constant 2.8 aperture is awesome. Search for some reviews on it. There are quite a few. I like mine a lot. They run around $350 USD.
