The proliferation of cameras of decent quality today is a great thing for all. As a professional photographer, I see all sorts of folks out shooting all sorts of things. This is wonderful. I see however lenses that have no business on cameras doing things they should not be doing. People buying D700's and putting DX lenses on them. People using D300's and shooting night football games with f5.6 lenses. It is like the research the camera but buy a lens based simply on focal length.
Kit lenses have a place for the retailers of the world. But if folks would spend some time and research what they are buying (for more than an afternoon), money might be better spent. personally, if I am thinking of buying a D90 and one of these kit lenses.....I'll simply buy a point and shoot instead.
