    So I sold my D40 and was going to keep the kit lens, but the guyer waved the cash in my face so I sold the kit lens too. What is a good lens to replace the 18-55?

    Do I work towards to prime lenses, obviously a 50 1.8 and what else? I sort of like the flexability on being able to use the 18-55 to get the right pic.

    Thoughts are welcome.

    Tamron 17-50 2.8 is a great and fast lens around $400.00 or the Nikon 17-55 2.8 arond $1000.00.

    I have the Tamron myself and love it.....
