Well I don't have anything to contribute ATM, but in observing this entire thread :O I noticed one thing about the 18-55.... It seems no one uses it (or posts good shots) with it zoomed in. It seems as though basically all of the pictures people posted with the 18-55 seemed to be at a very wide angle.

Which makes me think maybe that's why I have been so infuriated with it. I have been zooming in in *most* of mine and am then very frustrated with the result!
But I will post something when I'm home this weekend :)

Have you tried stopping down a little bit, to maybe F8 or so? What kind of issues are you seeing (soft, low contrast, distortion)?

Monica, the following were made with the 18-55 zoomed in, 51mm and 55mm, respectively:

When using the kit lens you have to, like MidnightRook stated, stop it down to get any kind of sharpness . The reason you will not find too many zoomed in shots with the kitlens, is because it gets slow and a lot of people have the cheap 50mm 1.8 which performs a lot better at that focal range.

How do you think it would do with ring shots? For video.

Yes I did, I think the ones I took earlier this week were f/8 and f/10....

But here is one that I quite like from my 18-55. May not be the best according to the "rules" but makes me happy nonetheless :)
18-55mm at 18mm f/10 ISO 100 1/60

Thanks :-) she is our first baby so I don't like to leave her out. Plus the kids are so sick of the camera they run as soon as they see me pull it out! O.o

Same with our cats... They will find whatever place they can to escape the shutter.
