With posts like "Read The &^%$#@ Manual", that is not surprising.
The fact is that the kit 18-55 lens is an abomination, and just upgrading to a 50/1.8 can make the difference.
Experimenting and learning on your own is more fun than reading &^%$#@ Manuals.
Yup I agree the lens isn't the greatest but it will work to get a decent pic with the right settings.
Experimenting and learning on your own - will be a better learning experience if one knows what the camera will do with whatever setting is used for the lens that's on at the time. Most beginners don't have much of a clue how a digital camera will respond to different settings. Thus reading the manual can sure help.
Oh and the 50 is on my next lens want list - sampled one and can't save up the money fast enough
