Your making my point for me! The whole idea behind this was to get people to realize that both are excellent products including the less expensive products. You just said a mouthful about experience versus not! I figured if I jerked your chain I could get a statement like that out of you! Your a professional pilot as I used to be as well. So I would believe your a logical individual who thinks as much as you speak! Well Said! Thank You! PS: And I've got news for you! As you progress in this craft, you will be able to make an image from your "KIT" lens look nearly as good as one form a more expensive one!
